Today is a big day for Atlassian. A few minutes ago, we became a publicly traded company. Mike and I had the honor of ringing the NASDAQ opening bell, and we can think of no better way to celebrate than to recognize the work of our customers around the world and their teams that helped make all this possible.
We chose the ticker symbol TEAM because our mission is to unleash the potential of every team. We believe all human advancement is driven by teamwork. And while it’s common to celebrate the lone genius behind a breakthrough, it’s a team that brings their ideas to life.
We want to thank the teams in the 50,000 organizations in 160 countries that rely on our products. You amaze us with the way you use Atlassian software to achieve great things – be it the engineering teams at Cochlear who use Atlassian to create aural implants, the operations teams at Code.org who use HipChat to coordinate with volunteer engineers around the globe, or the IT teams at Daily Telegraph who use Atlassian to enable a daily newspaper to go to print for over two million readers.
So we’re inviting you to show off your team’s accomplishments.
Share your victories on Twitter with hashtag #goTEAM and let us know what your team is doing with the help of Atlassian products. (A simple “My team uses @Atlassian to…” works great.) We’ll join you in sharing your stories by retweeting your message.
Whether you’re unlocking the mysteries of the universe, building the next big thing, or simply helping your team work smarter, you inspire us. Thank you for making us a part of your team.
