How to Get Hired
We asked Atlassian for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Our values guide everything we do, from business decisions to how we work with one another as a team. The most crucial characteristic that we look for in potential new Atlassians is a connection and fit to our values. Our mission is to unleash the potential of every team, so candidates who are team-first thinkers, who crave a fast-paced and high-performance culture naturally belong here. Atlassians are naturally curious and willing to try new ideas and learn better ways of doing things. Perfection isn't the ultimate goal; it's about thinking strategically, learning from mistakes, maintaining a positive energy and working together to find the best solution. New ideas don't scare, but motivate and the idea of working with people at all levels across the organization in different geographies both energizes and inspires.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We're always on the lookout for people who are actively learning and growing, but are also interested in joining a company that values teamwork. There are several ways for candidates to get our attention. We regularly host and attend happy hours, meetups, industry conferences, and Atlassian User Group events. We value one-on-one connections and love to meet new people throughout all stages of their careers. Visiting our website and applying for a job is also another great way to grab our attention. What helps candidates stand out beyond intellectual curiosity and strong functional knowledge is a demonstrated fit with our values: Open company, no bullshit; Build with heart and balance; Don't #@!% the customer; Play, as a team; Be the change you seek. 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?
We're hiring in each of our offices and are always looking for team players to join, especially in our new Mountain View office. As an engineering-focused company, we're always in search of product-minded software developers who are interested in both functionality and usability as well as scalability and reliability. The last two are especially important as we migrate our products to the cloud. In addition to developers, we're always looking to hire for roles in marketing, support, design, and product management across our US locations and abroad.
As we work toward becoming a more diverse team, we're actively encouraging underrepresented groups to investigate opportunities with our teams in Austin, New York, Mountain View, and San Francisco. We’ve partnered with several organizations to help us in our efforts in creating a more balanced team.
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 connection 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.
