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 from an office (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.

Do you live and breathe security? Want to battle villains every day? Need to work on meaningful problems, your way? We're expanding our security capability and looking for interns to help us. Does hacking our products and their code sound like your thing?

As an intern in one of our Security teams, you'll be watching over our corporate environment and Atlassian cloud services which host many tens of thousands of customers. Using your skills and experience in various languages and tech stacks you will discover and fix security vulnerabilities within Atlassian products and services, hone your pen testing and Red Team skills by analyzing those, participate in architecture and code reviews, threat modeling, and work closely with all the Atlassian engineering groups.

We would love for you to have strong coding skills but more importantly, you must be forward-thinking, motivated and have a passion for web app security. You should be comfortable writing code to get things done and not depend on third party products to do your job.

You love to innovate and to build your dreams. You are excited about the opportunity to work with our teams on complex challenges. You’re a great team player, inquisitive and enjoy dissecting and tackling hard problems. You have an interest in technology and think it has the power to change the world for the better. Whilst passionate about your work and delivering amazing quality, you’re still able to go fast, which means great instincts when it comes to the workload and using your time wisely. You’ll learn a lot, but you’ll also need to be able to stand up for your own ideas when the time comes.

One important note: Applicants must have Australian or New Zealand citizenship or Permanent Residency at the time of application. The internship dates are late November 2023 to late February 2024, full-time for 12 weeks.

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

    • Enrolled in a Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Science / Software Engineering or a related technical field and completing your studies by January 2025
    • Great skills writing clean, efficient code
    • Real passion for collaborating with colleagues to build technical solutions to hard problems
    • You view capture the flag competitions, crack-mes, and "unbreakable" products as challenges to your honour, hacking at them until they yield.

It’s great, but not required, if you:

    • Have a real passion for Security, as demonstrated by previous internships, work experience, projects, or publications
    • Knowledge of IT infrastructure such as networks and endpoints
    • If you already have a consistent track record in finding vulnerabilities, responsible disclosure or bug bounties that would be a great plus

Our perks & benefits

To support you at work and play, our perks and benefits include ample time off, an annual education budget, paid volunteer days, and so much more.
