Apply to Atlassian

Information is a powerful and essential 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 experience. We specialise at guiding users in their journey with our products by providing carefully crafted documentation and in-app text. Our mission is to write content that matters and provide just enough guidance for tasks that our customers need to complete, preferably with a dash of delight.

This isn't a traditional technical writing job. As part of the wider Design team, we actively participate in design activities and every piece of content we write plays a clear role in our UX and business goals. Atlassian's approach to documentation is all about what's best for the customers, so we're open to new solutions, creativity, and experimentation. 

We're constantly working on better ways to measure what makes an information experience successful and we keep challenging ourselves in improving our craft.

More about you 

This job is for someone who thinks bigger than traditional software documentation. You can explain complex features within tiny amounts of product real estate and communicate value in a compelling, clear, and effective way.

Ideally, you love to work with teams to ensure they're providing a great content experience.

Someone who's ready to not only own the documentation for their product, but also contribute to and help drive projects that benefit the larger content community here at Atlassian.

When you join the team, you'd be expected to have

  • Excellent technical writing skills
  • A love for both technical and user content
  • Experience working with software development teams, product managers, and designers
  • Great stakeholder management skills
  • A proven track record of working in and managing documentation projects in an agile, fast paced environment

And ideally, we'd hope you'd have

  • A knack for creatively engaging with audiences
  • Experience working on cross-product documentation
  • An ability to challenge yourself and others
  • Experience in improving or building both information architectures and content strategies for documentation
  • Bonus points if you have experience working with collaboration tools, wikis, or content management systems.
