Atlassian – Why Work For 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 and HipChat. 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

Our offices

Take your pick: historic building in central Sydney, remodeled warehouse in San Francisco, converted home on an Amsterdam canal, or killer views in downtown Austin.


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


    Lots of perks. Free breakfast lunch and snacks, tee shirts and hoodies, education and training, volunteer days. Great vibe in the office. There is a team dedicated to making Atlassian a cool place to work. Events are awesome too. Can take your dog to work. Fitness classes. Sit to stand desks, cool workspaces everywhere.


    Can be hard to concentrate with so much going on. There are a lot of entitled people there who fail to see the perks as more than enough. Doesn't pay well but perks make up for it.

    Advice to Management

    Make Shipit every 6 months. It's losing hype because it's on so often. Start saying no. Have quiet work spaces almost like a test class room style.
