Senior Java Developer

Senior Java Developer

Location: Sídney
Job Code: 54
# of openings: 2


Be a part of an energetic and fast moving team that delivers incredible, innovative improvements to our products. Using Java and Javascript, we create a rich, interactive and engaging user experience. Our Software Developers write and test code that binds the front and back ends of our products together and makes the customer experience and product usability as good as it gets (and it gets pretty darn awesome). This role will be responsible for whole vertical slices of functionality—from front end UI to back end product functionality. This role will be constantly working on and delivering new features and functionality through software improvements in small, high performing teams and continually optimise the performance of our products. You’ll collaborate often with other developers to write the best code for the project and deliver amazing results that our users love.

More about you

The Software Developers we’re seeking will have great commercial experience (5+ years) across Java, Javascript, web applications, Java frameworks (Spring, Hibernate, SQL and relational databases), jQuery, agile development, and will have a keen interest in Open Source technology. Deep understanding of how to build performant, decoupled, testable, maintainable code. We’d love if you have a good breadth of knowledge across-the-board, coupled with a deep area of expertise. You should be one of those naturally curious types, always looking to improve things, love dabbling in your own side-projects and learning new skills that are not a necessarily part of your normal day job. You’re probably someone who enjoys sharing knowledge with team-mates, asking for help when they need it, and at the end of the day, thrive on writing great code.

More about our team

We are always growing, learning, and adapting, in and out of the office. You’ll be joining a team that is crazy smart and very direct. We ask hard questions and challenge each other to constantly improve our work. We are self-driven but team oriented. We're dedicated to agile methodology and big believers in 'lean' (which means we don’t do documentation for documentation's sake). We know the importance of validating our assumptions about users and implement various types of testing to prove ourselves right (or wrong). Our bottom line is improving our user’s experience- no matter what.

Some Developer roles at Atlassian require international travel 1-4 times per year. Your recruiter will discuss whether this is a requirement for you during your initial conversation with us.  

More about the perks

Our offices are open, highly collaborative and yes, fun! To support you at work (and play) we offer some killer perks: ample time off to relax and recharge, five paid volunteer days a year for your favourite cause, plenty of food and drinks (including our famous 'Charlie's bar'), ergonomic workstations with Aeron chairs, 20% work time for your passion projects, unique ShipIt days, a company paid trip after five years and more.
