Administration Assistant - Remote / Work from Home

Atlassian Foundation

Atlassian can hire people in any country where we have a legal entity, assuming candidates have eligible working rights and a sufficient timezone overlap with their team. As our offices re-open, Atlassians can choose to work remotely or return to an office, unless it’s necessary for the role to be performed in the office. Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

With a sufficient timezone overlap with the team, we’re able to hire eligible candidates for this role from any location in Australia and/or New Zealand. If this sparks your interest, apply today and chat with our friendly Recruitment team further.

Do you want to be part of an incredible company and know that you’re making a difference every single day? Are you passionate about education for the world’s most disadvantaged young people, volunteering and business as a force for good? Our team has set big goals to see change within our lifetime. We can’t do it without you!

Working across the three streams of the Foundation (fondly named our Educate, Enlist and Energise pillars), you are the kind of person who anticipates problems even before anyone knows they exist. You have a strong drive to complete tasks and prioritise the most important things.

The Atlassian Foundation is looking for an Administrative Assistant to support the Foundation leadership team. In this role you’ll provide proactive administrative support to four individuals - Head of Foundation (HoF) and three Directors - in Australia and the USA with internal/external commitments. You’ll do your best work, to free them up to do theirs.

In this role, you'll get to:

  • Serve as HoF and each Director’s main point of contact to those outside of the organisation
  • Take initiative to bring things "from the back burner to the front burner" for leadership
  • Manage each Foundation leader’s inbox, prioritising the most important emails and actions
  • Coordinate scheduling (and oftentimes re-scheduling) of external/internal meetings and events with an understanding of team priorities, proactively managing sophisticated calendars
  • Provide general administrative support for meetings, including note-taking, supervising the completion of action items and key deliverables, and follow-up on outstanding items
  • When travel recommences, take charge of booking and travel management for all Foundation leaders, including booking all travel and hotels, directions, commuting time and ground transportation
  • Assist with various projects, including off-sites and presentations
  • Develop and nurture relationships with key operational partners, both internally and externally
  • Act as a trusted partner and advisor to Foundation leaders

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • Excellent written communication skills, the ability to draft replies to emails on behalf of HoF and Directors
  • A ‘consider it done’ attitude and strong attention to detail
  • Experience specifically in administrative, coordinator, logistics or support roles
  • Outstanding organisational skills, with the ability to work both independently and collaboratively
  • Strong work ethic, coachable attitude and commitment to high standards
  • Energy and enthusiasm, with an aptitude for crafting a warm team culture and community by demonstrating patience under pressure
  • The ability to be comfortable with ambiguity and great excitement about innovation
  • Ability to manage multiple and often conflicting priorities
  • Strong Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and interpersonal skills

We'd love you to have:

  • High "Get Stuff Done" attitude and track record
  • Remote-working experience/proven track record to work independently, as well as in a team, demonstrating ownership and self-sufficiency for admin projects
  • The ability to wear many hats at one time
  • Some experience in using Atlassian products (but not required - we can teach you that)
  • The ability to build a good network within Atlassian (especially Atlassian Finance, HR, Legal, Senior Executive Assistants, etc.)

Most importantly, you are passionate about making a difference and supporting the implementation of the Foundation vision and strategy.
