On your first day, we'll expect you to have: * A strong desire to execute, drive impact, and demonstrate urgency with projects big and small. * Comfort operating independently in a fast-changing environment and with multiple teams relying on you. * An owner mentality: You take pride in your work and view what you do as a part-owner and builder of Atlassian. * Solid understanding of incentive plan structures (quotas, accelerators, pay mix, and on-target earnings) * Ninja-like analysis skills: You know what questions to ask, what the data says, and what actions to take based upon the results. You are comfortable building detailed capacity and utilization models and have top-notch SQL skills. * Slick ability to package data into relevant insight: You'll be expected to build best-in-class, real-time dashboards from CRM data. Solid BI (e.g., Tableau, GoodData, Wave) and SFDC expertise is a big asset. * Deft ability to communicate data into relevant insight: You know how to create compelling presentations and can lead executives through data deep-dives. * You love partnering: You get that an organization is made up of very different parts. You relish influencing other teams and co-piloting cross-team initiatives. * Process improvement knowhow: Continuous improvement is in your DNA. You can enhance business processes from the diagnosis to documentation to execution. * Ability and desire to cover the range of activities from C-level presentations to hands-on, data deep-dives. * Minimum 3-5 years of ever-increasing responsibility in Sales Operations, Strategy, BizOps, or Analytics role within a B2B (ideally SaaS) company or in a strategy consulting environment.
