Senior Manager, Strategy & Operations

Last updated 17 days ago
Location:Remote -
Job Type:Full Time

Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and on-boarding done virtually due to COVID-19. All new and existing Atlassians will continue to work from home until it’s safe to return to our offices. When our offices re-open, every Atlassian will have the choice to work from an office or from home.

As a Senior Manager with the Operations Enablement team, you will own strategic initiatives and lead a passionate team of Senior Program Managers to deliver outcomes for the Customer Support and Success (CSS) organization. You will inspire and energize cross-functional teams to achieve our vision, define our strategy, evaluate our business, and identify opportunities to work better and deliver value to our internal and external customers. You will deliver highly visible, high-impact programs and coach your team of experienced and skilled program managers.

Using your business insight, deep program management skills, and analytical experience, you will partner directly with operations leaders as well as our IT, Design, Analytics (and many more!) partners to deliver successful outcomes against our OKRs. You will lead your team to continue building structure and rigor in our practices, build mastery in our program management craft, and inspire creativity and innovation. You will help the broader team reinforce customer empathy, build long term strategies and value-driven roadmaps, establish feedback and learning loops, and measure outcomes. Your work will positively impact our CSS teammates and you will help achieve greater outcomes, build deeper partnership, and do so with excitement and enthusiasm.

As the Operation Enablement team, we help build and optimize the ecosystem (tools, data, processes, people) for CSS across a global footprint. To be successful in this role, you will need to be a big picture thinker and able to dive deep into the details across every aspect of CSS. You will need to understand how a large scale business operates and be able to hold your own in high level, high stakes, strategic decision-making sessions.

Does this sound exciting to you? You might be the person we're looking for.

You Will:

  • Lead, inspire, and coach a team of 5 Program Managers and 1 Solutions Engineer
  • Be accountable for your team’s outcomes, performance, and health
  • Run high-visibility, high-impact strategic programs (which range from technical delivery, analytics deep dives, operational efficiency, and change management)
  • Work across the organization and company to drive outcomes, align with business owners and stakeholders, mitigate risk, and deliver value to our internal and external customers

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Minimum of 10+ years of program management and/or product delivery experience
  • Minimum of 5+ years experience leading a program, product and/or operations team with a focus on business operations, consulting, product management, and/or customer support and success
  • Ability to inspire your team to understand business needs, solve customer problems, and deliver measurable outcomes and impact
  • Significant experience in strategy and program delivery, alignment across a matrix team environment, and global change management
  • Expert level ability to communicate directly and clearly, with a strong emphasis on careful listening
  • Solid instincts in business strategy matched with deep analytical thinking. Experience leading a team in defining and driving success measures across a program and a portfolio.

It's great, but not required, if you have:

  • Masters or MBA
  • Coaching experience with various program and project management methodologies
