We are incredibly excited and honored to announce that Great Place to Work® and Fortune have recognized Atlassian as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials in the U.S., a new list based on the surveys of nearly 90,000 millennial workers across a variety of industries.
As a millennial working at Atlassian, I can think of a few reasons why we landed on this list. It might be the 100% employer paid healthcare benefits (which is totally awesome), or our foundation leave, which allows employees to take five paid days each year to volunteer with an organization of our choice. It could be the open and collaborative offices with dogs and stocked fridges, or the regular social events put on by our experience team. But while the perks are great, what it really boils down to is our company values – these are what truly set us apart from other organizations.
- Open company, no bullshit
- Build with heart and balance
- Don’t #@!% the customer
- Play, as a team
- Be the change you seek
These values guide every decision we make about products, people, and the organization at large. They’ve helped us to establish a culture of innovation that is both transparent and largely autonomous. A culture where age and experience matter less than your ability to follow through on a great idea. A culture that drives us forward in pursuit of our mission to unlock the potential in every team through the power of software.
Atlassian is growing at a crazy fast pace, and it’s the shared understanding of our values that empowers every employee (millennial or not) to take on big challenges, and to take risks in solving those challenges. On behalf of Atlassian, a huge thanks to Great Place to Work® and Fortune for including us as one of the 100 Best Workplaces for Millennials, and cheers to the other organizations who made the list! We’re humbled to be in such good company.
