Atlassian is looking for people. They are an Australian company… and I have to admit that I’m impressed by the apparent culture.
Here’s my theory: when the top management of a company hosts its blogs alongside the blogs of the developers in the trenches then you’ve got something. You’ve got:
- dialog between the management and the producers
- open-ness from management (which spells sincerity as opposed to market-speak)
- recognition that the people in the trenches are very important
Its great to see this culture in Australia. And also strange to see this culture overlap with that whole silicon valley thing.
