Atlassian is where women work


Women get yourself into Atlassian

Atlassian's values guide what they do, why they create, and who they hire. They enable teams to do amazing things. And they're growing really fast which means lots of opportunity and career progression - and diversity is a big deal.

What makes Atlassian such a special company - and a first choice employer for women - is their genuine passion to have an outsized impact on the world, and a personal desire to do the best work of their lives every single day.

Open and honest culture

Atlassian has a very open and honest culture so that they can make the best decisions. They love when people say what they mean, and mean what they say. And when they create their software, they're always thinking about the impact it has on everyone - customers, teammates, themselves. And they always expect their people to absolutely do the right thing.

Team players wanted

Good team playing skills are essential at Atlassian. No politics. No decisions by fear. They want you - their awesome employee - to be the change you seek so they encourage everyone if something isn’t right or working, fix it. They'll openly tell you that no process is set in stone.

The power of diversity

Seeking a diverse and inclusive workforce is a big priority for Atlassian and they're striving to create and maintain an environment where diversity and inclusion can flourish. Co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes places a lot of value on Atlassian's diversity aspirations and has commented favourably on the increasing percentage of female interns they're seeing attracted to the company.

Fabulous perks

And the perks are just brilliant. Atlassian provides fully stocked kitchens - fresh organic fruit, cake, smoothies or whatever you crave - at whatever time of day it's all available. They've modern standing desks, unique work spaces, fancy comfy chairs - and even yoga classes. And they share company ownership through equity awards because they believe when you play together, you can win together.

Superb work life balance

At Atlassian you can work flexible hours, take loads of time off, attend friends' and family events when you need to - and they provide 20 weeks paid leave for primary caregivers.

The power of software and education

And their very own Atlassian Foundation gives back in many ways - by giving Atlassians time to support the causes they believe in through five paid days a year to volunteer and be the change in their community. The Atlassian Foundation helps make the world better and they contribute 1% of their annual profits, 1% of employee time, and 1% of company equity to the foundation. They also actively support the Room to Read charity.
