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?
They are proactive and organized with the ability to work in a fast-paced, team environment providing consistent, high-quality output. They think strategically, recognizing the importance of long-term goals, having vision, and are committed to success. They are constantly searching for new knowledge and new ideas and are willing to learn better ways of doing things. Their positive energy inspires those around them to consistently achieve goals. They embrace diversity and are highly receptive to new ideas and people who are different.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
We're always on the look out for people who are always learning and growing. A great way to catch our attention is to stay involved in industry conferences, technology MeetUp's, or even Atlassian User Group events. We're also big believers in giving back to the communities around us, so people who are volunteering with organizations that better the world always tend to stand out. We encourage our own people to stay active in their communities by providing every Atlassian with five paid days for volunteer work each year.
Another way to stand out as a candidate is to show a demonstrated fit with Atlassian's 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?
In 2016, we're focused on building out a new engineering hub in Mountain View, CA. We're primarily looking for software and application 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.
As we work toward becoming a more diverse and inclusive team, we're especially excited to increase the representation of Atlassians who identify as female and/or as a member of an underrepresented racial or ethnic group on our teams in Austin, Mountain View, and San Francisco. We’ve partnered with several organizations to help us in this effort and will continue to prioritize diversity as we grow.
What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?
We would advise them to take a look at our careers page and apply to any role(s) they feel would be a good fit. There, candidates can watch our "The value of values at Atlassian" video to see how we live our values every day in everything we do, as well as our "Life at Atlassian" video where they can put themselves in the shoes of one of three Atlassian employees -- from Sydney, San Francisco, or Amsterdam. Another good source of information about working at Atlassian can be found on our Facebook page where candidates can discover more about our events, product releases, and fun times in our office. For developers we suggest they also look at our product blogs to learn more about what our product teams are working on.
