Atlassian Corporation, a leading provider of team collaboration and productivity software plans to hire over 1,000 employees globally including 300 R&D engineers in India next year.
The company plans to recruit a wide range of front-end and back-end engineers, their major focus being on the R&D engineers in India. The company’s R&D and customer support center in Bengaluru is looking to further scale its operations.
Atlassian recently unveiled a host of benefits, employee- first policies and resources in order to support the personal and professional growth of its employees globally. As a part of this the company said that they will be offering five days foundation leave every year which will enable all employees to volunteer at their preferred charity which will give them the opportunity to give back to the community.
In the current situation due to the pandemic where people are working from home in addition to the existing perks and benefits, Atlassian is providing their employees with an allowance of $US500 to help them manage an effective environment while working from home.
“We have invested significantly in talent acquisition in India but the ongoing pandemic which has fuelled a sharp rise in team collaboration and productivity software, has added the need to bring in even more talent. Globally, we’ve welcomed just short of 500 new Atlassians in the last quarter, mostly in R&D roles. As we continue to invest in and drive durable long-term growth, we also intend to maintain our ambitious hiring goals for the remainder of 2021. Atlassian offers the opportunity for engineers, whether they are just starting out their career or are seasoned pros, to work in a company with a startup culture but one that also has the safety and security of a multinational behind them. We continue to be recognised as a “Best Place to Work” by Great Place to Work Institute in nearly every market where we have an employee presence,” said Dinesh Ajmera, Site Lead and Head of Engineering, Bengaluru, Atlassian.
“Despite the pandemic, our journey as a cloud-first company is off to a good start in fiscal 2021. We have a strong presence of ITSM/ITOps teams in Bangalore who are having a large impact globally. We launched Jira Service Management for IT teams, made significant progress on enterprise capabilities in the cloud, and announced a three-year migration path to the cloud for on-premise customers. These are important milestones against two long-standing goals: bringing a world-class cloud experience to customers of all sizes and delivering continuous innovation that streamlines their most important workflows,” added Ajmera.
The company further added that for the hiring process the Candidate Assessment Framework of Atlassian has enabled global consistency to the assessment and selection process for their candidates, interviewers and hiring manager’s experience in the crafts they apply to. This will allow the interviewer to focus on the potential of the employees and evaluate them objectively focusing on their values, experience, skills and capabilities.
