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.

Atlassian is looking for Product Design Interns to join our growing Design teams. Join Atlassian as an intern and spend your internship having an impact on how millions of users collaborate and use software. The most amazing thinkers—like NASA rocket scientists and Tesla engineers—are coming to us for solutions. We're in the business of developing software to help teams everywhere get amazing ideas on the ground and into the world. Sound like an exciting place to start your career? Here you'll be encouraged to use your imagination and try new things.

You'll join a team that is smart and very direct. We challenge each other to improve our work, learn, and ask hard questions. We're dedicated to Agile methodology and are big believers in 'lean' (which means we don't do documentation for documentation's sake). We know the importance of validating assumptions about users and use several types of testing to figure out whether we're right (or wrong). Our bottom line is improving our user's experience—no matter what.

This program is open to penultimate year university students with Australian or New Zealand citizenship or Permanent Residency. The internship dates are late November 2023 to late February 2024, full-time for 12 weeks.

Apply for our intern program and start an awesome career!

Please note, in the application process, you will be required to upload a portfolio demonstrating a previous project or case study you worked on, reflecting on your understanding of human centred design and/or design thinking.

Pro tip: When you submit your portfolio, it really helps to share a little bit about the problem you’re trying to solve, the process you followed and why, and some of the reasoning behind your design decisions. This will help the team get to know more about how you work as a designer!

You'll Have The Opportunity To

  • Gain valuable exposure to the design and product development process.
  • Be mentored by our experienced designers in shaping your internship outcomes.
  • Experience Atlassian's culture through our many companywide and cross-regional programs.

More About You

  • Be able to commit to a 12 week full-time (38hrs / week) internship from late November 2023 until late February 2024. We may be able to flex on this slightly if your course timetable does not allow for a 12 week placement during this timeframe.
  • Be currently enrolled in a Bachelors or Masters in a Computing Design, Product Design or related degree and completing your studies by January 2025.
  • Experience with user-focused design
  • Demonstrate the ability to plan while juggling multiple simultaneous projects
