What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Every Atlassian receives five paid days each year for volunteer work.

We encourage every candidate to review our values on atlassian.com/careers before interviewing with the team.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
In 2017, we're focused on building a new engineering hub in Mountain View, CA. We're primarily looking for developers with mobile and cloud experience. Additionally, we’ll continue to hire in Austin, TX and San Francisco, CA where we’ll have open roles in marketing, support, design, and product management in both locations.
As we work toward becoming a more diverse team, we're working on ways to encourage underrepresented groups to investigate opportunities with our teams in Austin, Mountain View, and San Francisco. We’ve partnered with several organizations to help us in our diversity efforts.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
The very first step in kicking off the recruitment process would be to visit atlassian.com/careers and explore our open opportunities. If there is a good between a candidate’s skill set and an open role, we’d encourage them to apply directly or reach out to any Atlassians that might be part of their personal network. From there, a recruiter will review the application and kick off the recruitment process if there’s a good fit.
For technical roles, we’re in the process of building a public coding test so that candidates can show their skills even if there isn’t a role that’s right for them. Keep an eye on atlassian.com/careers as that will launch in the fall of 2017.
