Job description

At Atlassian, we are on a mission to help our customers compete and win in the modern, digital economy. We have built a billion-dollar, fast-growing software business with over 180,000 paying customers and hundreds of sales and implementation partners around the globe. Our culture is open, welcoming, collaborative, and deliriously passionate about our customers’ success; we are competitors who work with heart and balance.

Atlassian is the leader in agile planning, DevOps, and scaled agile using market-leading products like Jira and Jira Align. We are also the ultimate challenger in the market for IT Service Management and Operations. Gone are the days of unwieldy bloated IT management software. Today’s IT organization is a lean-agile machine. Every CIO is held to a higher bar and needs a modern platform to serve internal + external customers - delivering a tangible return on IT investment. With Jira Service Desk we offer an agile and scalable way to manage service and self-help. Between Statuspage and Opsgenie - incidents are triaged, managed, and resolved in real-time. Gone is the software of old, to reinvent and position our customers to leap forward into modern IT that powers their business efficiently and effectively.

We are looking for an experienced ITSM sales professional who has worked with senior leaders at the world’s largest companies. The Senior Account Executive will be the first person in this role and a key contributor in helping us author and define our sales approach with these customers specifically for our ITSM solutions. You will work arm-in-arm with partners, product teams, sales engineering, and the other sales teams to deliver comprehensive and compelling messages that result in scale adoption of Atlassian ITSM solutions. There is simply not a more exciting and hugely impactful strategic selling opportunity anywhere!
