Company Description

Software is changing the world, and we’re at the center of it all. With a customer list that reads like a who's who in tech, and a highly disruptive business model, we’re advancing the art of team collaboration with products like JIRA, Confluence, BitBucket, HipChat, and now Trello. Driven by honest values, an amazing culture, and consistent revenue growth, we’re out to unleash the potential of every team. From Amsterdam and Austin to Sydney and San Francisco, we’re looking for people who are powered by passion and eager to do the best work of their lives in a highly autonomous yet collaborative, no B.S. environment.

Job Description

Are you an industry leader when it comes to content design, content strategy, or content-driven product experiences? Are you tired of not going big enough, not going deep enough, or not solving the real problems that people face in modern workplaces today? Do you enjoy ambiguous, hard, cross-cutting initiatives that require collaborating, co-creating, and unifying a diverse set of smart colleagues with disparate experience and insights? Do you love driving and pushing those initiatives across the finish line so we deliver real tangible customer value and impact that is better than anyone could ever have done alone? If so, becoming the first Principal Content Designer at Atlassian may be the exceptional opportunity you need.
At Atlassian, we believe all user journeys with products, brands, companies, and experiences are fundamentally content-driven. Content provides the glue that carries users from where they are, to where they seek to be. We know that great writing and content strategy are not always valued, and we're on a mission to change this.

This isn't a traditional technical writing role. As a Principal Content Designer on the Atlassian design team, you'll be...

  • Empowered to go deep on big problems in product content strategy, information architecture, and content design.
  • Experiment with a variety of approaches to information in the UI, documentation, supporting materials, and anywhere else our customers experience information.
  • Find innovative ways to measure what makes product content successful, and use these methods to constantly challenge us to improve our craft.
  • Advocate boldly and enthusiastically to make Atlassian recognized for how we approach content experience.
  • Work globally with a team around the world to bring us together towards solving customer problems in the best ways we can imagine together.
  • Accountable for identifying and ensuring resolution of issues impacting content effectiveness across experiences in both product and supporting properties – particularly around information architecture, content strategy, and standards.

More about you

  • This job is for someone who thinks outside of the box of traditional software documentation. You have demonstrated significant impact in the industry and across companies in forming, delivering, and ensuring effective content across product and support experiences.
  • You believe in collaboratively creating, evolving, and driving a clear content strategy across a ton of valuable content. You also believe in constantly pushing to improve, learn, and do even more to help customers through great content.

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

  • excellent technical writing and verbal communication
  • a love for both technical and user content
  • experience with establishing a strong content strategy and delivering high-quality impactful content in line with that strategy
  • experience working with software development teams, support, designers, and marketing
  • great stakeholder management skills
  • an ability to establish respect, provide guidance at all levels, and impress anyone or everyone you encounter
  • an industry reputation for content strategy, technical writing, and thought leadership

And ideally, as a bonus you'd have:

  • a knack for creatively engaging with audiences
  • experience working on cross-product documentation
  • an ability to challenge yourself and others
  • experience working on project management, productivity software, or service desk documentation
