Love staying ahead of the growth curve and experimenting with new software and environments? Join JIRA Site Reliability Engineering team in Gdańsk as a DevOps Engineer to deal with systems serving millions of users worldwide. You will implement and maintain solutions that operate at scale - seeing your own technology efforts directly improve the reliability of Atlassian products. 

What you will do:

Work side by side with the product family and platform developers to maintain and improve reliability and performance of our production and non-production systems.

Investigate and sink your teeth into why something didn't work out the way it should - and once you've done that, work out what we can do to stop it happening again.

Strong scripting experience (Python, Bash etc.) - we don't want you doing repetitive work!

Creative and innovative problem-solving skills with a willingness to take responsibility for the code you write all the way to production.
Excellent communication skills with fluent English (both spoken and written).
A collaborative spirit - in our world, it’s not about being a hero and having all the answers, it’s about sometimes saying "I don't know" and working on finding solutions rather than starting with an assumption.
