Armed with a credit card and a dream, university friends Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar set out to create Atlassian in 2002.
Now, we’re a team of 8,000+ supporting an international group of 180,000+ customers.
We build tools like Jira, Confluence and Trello to help teams across the world become more nimble, creative, and aligned.
Using those tools, our customers and teams have helped put the Mars Curiosity Rover into space, develop the cochlear implant, and built thousands of products launched to millions of customers around the world.
Our mission is to unleash the potential of every team.
At Atlassian, our values guide our business, our product development, and our brand. As our company continues to evolve and grow, these five values remain constant.
Open company, no bullshit
Openness is root level for us. Information is open internally by default and sharing is a first principle. And we understand that speaking your mind requires equal parts brains (what to say), thoughtfulness (when to say it), and caring (how it’s said).
Build with heart and balance
“Measure twice, cut once.” Whether you're building a birdhouse or a business, this is good advice. Passion and urgency infuse everything we do, alongside the wisdom to consider options fully and with care. Then we make the cut, and we get to work.
Don’t #@!% the customer
Customers are our lifeblood. Without happy customers, we’re doomed. So considering the customer perspective - collectively, not just a handful - comes first.
Play as a team
We spend a huge amount of our time at work. So the more that time doesn’t feel like “work,” the better. We can be serious, without taking ourselves too seriously. We strive to put what’s right for the team first – whether in a meeting room or on a football pitch.
Be the change you seek
All Atlassians should have the courage and resourcefulness to spark change – to make better our products, our people, our place. Continuous improvement is a shared responsibility. Action is an independent one.

A lot can change based on the role you’re interested in, but for the most part, here are the steps you can expect as part of your application and interview process.
Atlassian is continuing to hire with all interviewing and onboarding done virtually due to COVID-19.
Not only do they offer guidance on what to expect during each step of the process, but they also share best practices for virtual interviewing and feedback.
Additionally, you’ll work with the same Candidate Experience (CX) coordinator, throughout the entire hiring process. Their CX coordinators are available by email, phone, and even WhatsApp, to field any questions or concerns you might have—including accessibility needs. They will work to ensure you have exactly what is needed throughout the interview process.
Their interview process consists of two stages. They've outlined these below:
The first stage of their interviewing flow is an introductory call with a recruiter. They’ll use this time to learn more about your experience, share more information about the role, and leave time to answer questions about the company, the team, and what it would be like to remotely take on a new challenge.
When they started redesigning their interview process, the first question they asked themselves was: “What will candidates miss about in-person interviews?” They can virtually meet with hiring managers and other team members, and they can also complete exercises online. But what about spending a day at the office?
While nothing can replace an in-person experience, they've collected some alternatives to help provide insight into life at Atlassian. First, spend time with a video made up of found footage from Atlassian's global offices. Second, each CX coordinator shares a presentation detailing their "day in the life" at Atlassian, including their commute, favourite local coffee shops, preferred workspaces, and team meals when they're working on-site.
After successfully completing the interview process, your interviewers will consolidate feedback, and if there's a good fit between your skills and experiences with the open role they will extend an offer.
Their Graduate program is designed to provide new graduates with real-world experiences to help them achieve professional goals and personal dreams.
