Atlassian – Why Work With Us?



We love teams of all kinds

Teams of developers, product managers, doc writers, bug-bashers – are our heroes. We started with software teams, but really it's all teams we love. Our products help teams of all sizes track and share everything, work smarter, and create better software together. 

Our business

Put simply, we build software to plan, collaborate, code and service. A few of our more well-known products include Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and now Trello. What makes us different than most software companies is that we sell our products directly through our website. Go ahead, check 'em out, try 'em out on atlassian.com.

Our offices

We trace our roots back to Sydney, Australia where we still operate our largest office. As Atlassian grows, we're truly becoming a global company with offices in San Francisco, Mountain View, New York City, Austin, Amsterdam, and Manila. Each of our offices has its own personality made up of the people that work there, each awesome in their own distinct ways.

Our customers

From the world's biggest brands to the world's soon-to-be-biggest brands, our products are found here, there, and everywhere.

The Value of Values

These aren't your typical corporate values. They steer every decision we make, whether it's about products, brand, or people. As our company continues to evolve and grow, these five values remain constant.

Open Company, No Bullsh!t

Atlassian embraces transparency wherever practical, and sometimes where impractical. All information, both internal and external, is public by default. We are not afraid of being honest with ourselves, our staff, and our customers.

Build with Heart and Balance

Every day we try to build useful products that people lust after. Building with heart means really caring about what we're making and doing–it's a mission, not just a job. When we build with balance we take into account how initiatives and decisions will affect our colleagues, customers, and stakeholders.

Don't #%@& the Customer

When we make decisions we ask ourselves, "How will this affect our customers?" If the answer is that it would screw them over, or make life more difficult, then we need to find a better way. We want the customer to respect us in the morning.

Play, as a Team

We want all Atlassians to feel like they work with Atlassian, not for Atlassian. We think it's important to have fun with your workmates while working and contributing to the Atlassian team.

 

Be the Change You Seek

We think Gandhi had it right when he said, "We need to be the change we wish to see in the world". At Atlassian we encourage everyone to create positive change. We're constantly looking for ways to improve our company, our products, and our environment.

What To Expect

Yes, we really use the ping pong tables. We work together, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't play together as well. Let's face it, we spend a lot of our lives working, so it's important that our workspace is both inviting and fun. Play games, join a club, fix something, start something; our culture is a direct result of our employees living our values and making Atlassian the place they want it to be. 

New Ideas Welcome

We think we've got something pretty special at Atlassian, but we're tinkerers, innovators, and all-around normal people so our culture is always up for discussion. How do we make it better? New ideas make us better, change makes us better, and we encourage everyone to raise a hand and Be the Change You Seek.

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company is growing so quickly, and there is a ton to do! There are so many challenges for you to solve, some of the biggest challenges you can solve in a career. And that makes it exciting. But what's even better is that Atlassian really gives its employees the room to solve those tough challenges.

    More than any company I've ever been at, Atlassian tries really hard to take all of the pressures that might prevent you from being effective. From the benefits, to the food, to the healthcare, the pay, etc. It's an amazing experience.

    The employees are some of the smartest people I've ever worked with, and it's an absolute pleasure to come to work every single day.

    Of course, this could be a "new job honeymoon" - but every one I talk to, who's been here for many years, feels the exact same way still.

    Everyone is working really hard - and don't get me wrong, it's not like we're all putting in 10 hour days, every day, or anything. But it's when we are working, we're working hard, intelligently, fast, effective, and efficient.

    And the best part of the business? our company values (look them up) - we live and breathe them every day.

    Cons

    Growing pains.

    Another pro of Atlassian is we're always trying to disrupt ourselves, before our competitors do. But, that can sometimes cause maybe some confusion, or disconnect, or have a lack of clarity - but, that's okay. Because if we didn't do it to ourselves, our competitors would.

    I want to address one "con" I've seen in other reviews - and that's the pay. I think the pay is "fair" or "average" for the bay area. But what you have to really look at is the total compensation (normally I wouldn't say this, but this time I do). The free food, the free healthcare, the stocks, the health stipend, the commuter benefits, etc...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to really double down on the company values. Make sure every employee has a growth plan, so that they're always working towards not just the goals for the company - but also the goals for themselves. Check in every chance you can - and ask each employee a simple question "scale of 1 - 10, how happy are you?"

    You'll find a LOT of people will be very close to a 10 - which is great! But if there are any pockets, catch them asap! (other companies don't do this, and I've seen these pockets create toxic environments that leak out everywhere).

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Atlassian (Sydney).

    Interview

    The interview consisted of three steps.

    - First was an online assessment consisting of multiple coding challenges.
    - Second was a phone interview regarding mostly behavioural questions
    - Third is an on-site interview of 3 stages.

    The three stages include a whiteboard interview, a coding challenge, and a behavioural interview.

    Interview Questions

    • For the whiteboard interview, they asked me to structurally go through any project I completed prior to the interview.   Answer Question
