Atlassian Corporation, a provider of team collaboration and productivity software, plans to hire over 1000 employees globally including 300 R&D engineers in India, over the next year as part of a major recruitment drive.
The maker of Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Trello will recruit a range of front-end and back-end engineers, with a major focus on R&D engineers in India. With nearly 700 employees at present, Atlassian’s R&D and customer support center at Bangalore is looking to scale its operations.
To tackle new remote ways of working accentuated by the pandemic, Atlassian is also providing all employees with an allowance of $US500 to enable an effective WFH environment, in addition to its existing perks and benefits.
“Globally, we’ve welcomed just short of 500 new Atlassians in the last quarter, mostly in R&D roles. We intend to maintain our ambitious hiring goals for the remainder of 2021,” Dinesh Ajmera, Site Lead and Head of Engineering, Bengaluru, Atlassian said.
Atlassian’s total customers rose by a record 11,617 net-new customers of all sizes, to 194,334 in the last quarter, up by 17.9 percent from a year ago. By serving IT teams, the company more than doubles their addressable opportunity in the technical teams’ market from 45M to 100M users.
