A brief history

Armed with a credit card and a dream, two college friends, Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar set out to create Atlassian. In 2002, they didn't know what kind of company Atlassian was going to be, but they knew exactly what it shouldn't be—an environment where they had to conform rather than be who they authentically are.

Now 20 years in, we’ve grown into a global company with employees all over the world, but those early ambitions hold true. Here’s our story:

What we believe

Values to live by

Our unique values describe, at the most fundamental level, what we stand for. These five values shape our culture, influence who we are, what we do, and even who we hire. They're hard-wired into our DNA and will stay the same as we continue to grow.

We :heart: teams

Over 200,000+ customers use Atlassian to empower their teams and drive their missions forward.

We take 'Don't #@!% the Customer' seriously because our customers are the reason why we do what we do. It's even why we price our products so every company can afford them. They inspire us, challenge us, and in turn, help us build better products.

How we work

Working Open

We believe all teams have the potential to do amazing things when work is Open.

Much of the world works, often unwittingly, in a closed way. Information is hidden or lost, bonds between teams and teammates are weak, and perspectives are withheld. The result? People burn out. Knowledge is wasted. Potential is left on the table. Forward progress is halted. This is why Open matters. This is why we do what we do at Atlassian.

Open work has always been central to our values. It's in the DNA of our products and we bring it to life through our practices. But it doesn't just happen. Our teams make an effort to work, communicate, and collaborate openly every day to lead by example.

Open unlocks new opportunities. Open brings us together. Open unleashes potential.
