Senior UX Writer
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.

When you join the team, you’d be expected to have:
- Excellent writing and content strategy skills across long and short form.
- A proven track record of working in and managing projects in an agile, fast-paced environment
- An understanding of how content design connects to business objectives
- 5+ years of professional UX writing, technical writing, or relevant experience
And ideally, we’d hope you’d have:
- A knack for creatively engaging with audiences
- Experience applying design processes, such as design thinking, critiques, user journeys, and personas, to improve or validate your work
- Experience working across desktop, web, and mobile
It's great, but not required if you have:
- Worked with a content management system, Contentful or similar tool
- Experience with SaaS, or complex enterprise applications.
- If you’ve used Confluence, Notion, Quip, Wordpress, SharePoint, Coda, Airtable in a professional setting.
Show us something:
- Along with your resume, send or point us to examples or a portfolio of your work. Ideally, send us work that shows us your UX writing and documentation experience.
