Enterprise Software Company Sets Its Course for London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Madrid to Lure Developers to Sydney

London, UK, February 29, 2012 — With sights set on hiring fifteen developers in fifteen days, fast-growing enterprise software company Atlassian is heading to London on April 12th to launch a European “Recruitment Roadshow” bus tour.   A select team from Atlassian’s Engineering department will be riding a swag-filled bus to visit four European cities – London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Madrid – to recruit fifteen senior software developers to relocate to the company’s Sydney, Australia-based headquarters.

Participants will be picked up from various locations around each city, bused to a secret pub location for an evening of socializing with Atlassian’s Engineering team over beers and informal talks.  Formal interviews will take place in each city for two days.

“Atlassian is rapidly expanding at an incredible pace. The quickest way for us to grow is by attracting some of the best and brightest developers from Europe!” said Joris Luijke, Atlassian’s vice president of Talent/HR, who moved from Europe himself.  “We’re planning to invest millions in new engineering jobs at Atlassian this year, so now is a great time to join.”

“With European newspapers reporting a continued slump in its economy, I expect more Australian tech companies to recruit in Europe,” Luijke added.

Australia’s Silicon Beach has a large and thriving community of highly successful software companies. Atlassian, the leading provider of collaboration software for developer teams, is one of Australia’s ‘Best Employers’ as voted by the Great Places to Work institute and by Hewitt.

Atlassian is rolling out the red carpet and minimizing the hassle of relocation to make it easier for developers to make the move. The company will take care of arranging work VISAs for those hired as well as their partners, cover all relocation expenses, and offer a slew of additional perks.

Starting today, Atlassian will begin pre-screening applicants for interview spots in each city. The company is looking for strong Java and JavaScript developers who have an average of six years experience and are passionate about making an impact on the future of software development. Interested candidates are encouraged to sign up now for one of the bus tours to learn more about employment opportunities and relocation to the company’s Sydney office. Candidates can also apply for one of these 15 positions by submitting an application for an interview.
