Working at Atlassian
Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity. Assuming you have eligible working rights and a sufficient time zone overlap with your team, you can choose to work remotely or return to an office as they reopen (unless it’s necessary for your role to be performed in the office). Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.
We are looking for an experienced Manager who can develop, champion, and motivate a team of highly-skilled Strategic Account Managers, responsible for the health and retention of our largest Enterprise customers. With over 240,000 customers worldwide, our Strategic Account Management team is assigned to the largest 10% of Enterprise customers in their respective regions; representing Atlassian’s product portfolio, including Jira, Confluence and Jira Service Management.
The team drives renewals and expansion across Atlassian’s full product portfolio. We partner closely with our Strategic Sales Team to drive book of business growth, with our team also leading smaller Cloud & Data Center sales cycles end-to-end. We are responsible for providing deal support on large strategic opportunities, including white space analysis and install base research. The team you will be leading focuses primarily on the German market, so German market experience is strongly preferred.
You are a creative and strategic thinker responsible for helping define the team’s direction and strategy. You will be accountable for team performance, revenue forecasting, and balancing prioritization amidst a complex ownership footprint, as well as staffing, on-boarding, and up-skilling the team.

You are the voice for the team, helping to escalate and remove blockers where needed so your team can do their best work and provide an ideal customer experience. You will report directly into the Global Head of Loyalty Advocates.
We are looking for someone who possesses strong leadership skills, with the ability to motivate and inspire staff and adapt to change. You must be an adept planner, results-driven, and possess an innate ability to empathize with Atlassian stakeholders, Solution Partners, and customers. We want a team player who can demonstrate both strong leadership skills and humility in an organization that prides itself on its open, honest, and supportive culture. You have over 5 years of management experience with a track record of achieving revenue goals. You will play a critical part in helping us build our next-generation enterprise business model globally.
On your first day, we’ll expect you to have:
- German language and/or market experience (strongly preferred)
- 5 – 10 years of renewals/sales / account management/customer success experience, ideally with 3+ years managing revenue-impacting teams focused on Enterprise customers (8+ total years of experience)
