Atlassian

WHO WE ARE

The power of teamwork

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.

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, 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.

Mike and Scott, both 18, land in the same scholarship course at the University of New South Wales.

1998

Atlassian, inspired by the Greek Titan, is registered as a business name.

2001

Atlassian becomes real with the launch of Jira 1.0.

Confluence 1.0 is born and released to the world.

After an "interview" over a game of pool, we hire our first U.S. employee, Jeffrey Walker.

2003

We begin hosting our quarterly internal innovation days, ShipIt. It's like 20% time on steroids.

1,000

2005

We make a pledge to donate 1% of equity, product, profit, and employee time to charitable causes, and Atlassian Foundation is created.

Codegiest, our annual add-on, and power-up hackathon make its debut.

2006

Our five core values come to life.

Open company, no bullshit.
Build everything with heart and balance.
Don’t #@!% the customer.
Play as a team.
Be the change you seek.

2007

We acquire Bamboo, Fisheye, Crucible, Clover, and Crowd and grow our suite of developer tools.

Atlas Camp, our annual developer conference, kicks off for the very first time.

2008

We open our first European office in Amsterdam.

2009

Our donations to Room to Read a total $1.25 million.

Code hosting service Bitbucket joins the family.

Accel Partners invests $60 million in Atlassian in a secondary market transaction, their largest single investment in a software company.

2010

10 years!
