Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity, assuming candidates have eligible working rights and a sufficient timezone overlap with their team. As our offices re-open, Atlassians can choose to work remotely or return to an office, unless it’s necessary for the role to be performed in the office. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
Information is a powerful and crucial element of the user experience. If that statement makes your eyes light up, you might be who we're looking for!
At Atlassian, we look at the way we communicate technical information to our customers as an end-to-end journey. This journey begins with our customers and their needs, continues through the discovery and purchasing process to learning our products, and ends with just enough content to guide our customers or solve their problems.
This isn't a traditional technical writing role. As a member of the Design team, you'll be empowered to experiment with a variety of approaches to presenting and managing information.
This job is for someone who thinks bigger than traditional software documentation. You can explain complex features and communicate value in a compelling, clear, and effective way. You're ready to be responsible for the information experience for their customer journey and contribute to projects that benefit the larger documentation community here at Atlassian.
On the first day, we’ll expect you to have:
- Excellent writing and communication skills
- Experience creating product documentation for technical audiences
- Experience designing in-app copy
- Experience working with multi-disciplinary teams including designers, developers, product managers, analysts, marketing, and customer support teams
- Experience working in and managing documentation projects in an agile, fast-paced environment
It's great, but not required if:
- A knack for creatively engaging with audiences
- Experience working on cross-product documentation
- Experience with conducting and using research insights to improve content-driven experiences
- An ability to challenge yourself and others
- Experience in improving or building information architectures and content strategies
- Bonus points if you have experience working on developer or service desk documentation
We believe information is critical to any user experience. When you join Atlassian as a Content Designer (CD), you become part of the Atlassian Design organization. Content Design includes everything needed to understand, support, market, and use that product. You won't own all the content, but you'll help make sure the stories we tell are consistent and create a great experience for our customers.
