It’s more than where we work - it’s how we work
Atlassian develops products and practices that help teams around the world collaborate. Headquartered in Sydney, we’ve been a distributed company ever since our first U.S. office opened in 2005. Now we have employees in 13 countries. So we know a thing or two about working across latitudes and longitudes.
Team Anywhere is our approach to distributed work. We created it to give our employees more flexibility, tap into pools of talent beyond the urban hubs where our offices are located, and to reimagine how work gets done – both for ourselves and our customers.
Progress over perfection
Atlassian is one of the largest companies (if not the largest) to give employees this much flexibility. We’re striving to build the most innovative and resilient company possible, while giving Atlassians huge new opportunities to build a life that works inside and outside their careers. But this journey is far from over. In fact, we’re just getting started.
We have dedicated Atlassians who focus on this transformation every single day. Why? Because it’s not enough to make a series of decisions and consider it “done.” We are constantly seeking to understand what’s working, what’s not, and reimagining teamwork for scenarios and challenges we haven’t even experienced yet. And we’re taking what we learn about distributed work within our own teams to shape what we build for our customers.
We don’t have all the answers, but we owe it to ourselves and our customers to find them. Because we truly believe the future of work is distributed. So let’s reimagine how work gets done – for today, tomorrow, and the next 100 years.
Why distributed work?
Remote work means working from home or a co-working space, which excludes people who need (or simply prefer) an office setting. Hybrid work means mandating some arbitrary amount of office time. We considered both and said, “Mmmm… nope.”
We use the term “distributed” work because we’re all about flexibility and autonomy. Atlassians can choose to work from one of our offices, or not, on any given day. We’re not precious about where work happens. But we care a lot about how it happens.
