Behind every great human achievement, there is a team.
From medicine and space travel to disaster response and pizza deliveries, our products help teams all over the planet advance humanity through the power of software.
Our mission is to help unleash the potential of every team.
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, over 15 years later, our team has grown to over 3,000 Atlassian's worldwide with offices around the globe. But it didn't happen overnight. Here's our story.
