About Atlassian

Creating software that empowers everyone from small startups to the who’s who of tech is why Atlassian is here. They build tools like Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Trello to help teams across the world become more nimble, creative, and aligned—collaboration is the heart of every product they dream of at Atlassian. From Amsterdam and Austin to Sydney and San Francisco, they’re looking for people who want to write about the future and who believe that they can accomplish so much more together than apart.

Your role

As an intern in one of their Security teams, you'll be watching over their corporate environment and Atlassian cloud services which host many tens of thousands of customers. Using your skills and experience in various languages and tech stacks you will discover and fix security vulnerabilities within Atlassian products and services, hone your pen testing and Red Team skills by analyzing those, participate in architecture and code reviews, threat modelling, and work closely with all the Atlassian engineering groups.

They would love for you to have strong coding skills but more importantly, you must be forward-thinking, motivated, and have a passion for web app security. You should be comfortable writing code to get things done and not depend on third-party products to do your job.

You love to innovate and build your dreams. Ambitious and driven, you are excited about the opportunity to work with their teams on complex challenges. You’re a great team player, inquisitive, and enjoy dissecting and tackling hard problems (the more challenging the better). You have an interest in technology and think it has the power to change the world for the better. Whilst passionate about your work and delivering amazing quality, you’re still able to go fast, which means great instincts when it comes to the workload and using your time wisely. You’ll learn a lot, but you’ll also need to be able to stand up for your own ideas when the time comes.

    About you

    On your first day, they'll expect you to:

    • Enrolled in a Bachelors's or Masters's degree in Computer Science / Software Engineering or a related technical field and completing your studies by January 2025
    • Great skills in writing clean, efficient code
    • Real passion for collaborating with colleagues to build technical solutions to hard problems
    • You view capture-the-flag competitions, crack-mes, and "unbreakable" products as challenges to your honour, hacking at them until they yield.

    It’s great, but not required, if you:

    • Have a real passion for Security, as demonstrated by previous internships, work experience, projects, or publications
    • Knowledge of IT infrastructure such as networks and endpoints
    • If you already have a consistent track record in finding vulnerabilities, responsible disclosure or bug bounties that would be a great plus
