Atlassian is seeking a seasoned Finance leader to join the Financial Planning & Analysis team (FP&A). In this visible position, you will be responsible for owning our global headcount, compensation and benefits forecast. You will partner closely with multiple stakeholders across the business including Talent Acquisition leadership, HR leadership, our Global Benefits team and internal FP&A Business Partners team to provide Headcount analysis and support compensation program management for the business. The successful candidate will partner with all stakeholders to support a predictable headcount and benefits forecast which is aligned with Atlassian's compensation philosophy and strategy. The ideal candidate has the ability to understand complex data, is detail-oriented and laser-focused, but is also able to see the bigger picture.
At Atlassian, we strive to design equitable, explainable, and competitive compensation programs. To support this goal, the baseline of our range is higher than that of the typical market range, but in turn we expect to hire most candidates near this baseline. Base pay within the range is ultimately determined by a candidate's skills, expertise, or experience. In the United States, we have three geographic pay zones. For this role, our current base pay ranges for new hires in each zone are:
Zone A: $194,400 - $259,200
Zone B: $175,000 - $233,300
Zone C: $161,400 - $215,200
This role may also be eligible for benefits, bonuses, commissions, and equity.
Please visit for more information on which locations are included in each of our geographic pay zones. However, please confirm the zone for your specific location with your recruiter.
