what we do
Atlassian is a private, global software company that
helps technical teams collaborate and build better
software from concept to launch. Our mission is
simple: delight customers with our products and our
service, value innovation in development and our
business operation, and solve customer problems
with brilliant simplicity.
Our name, Atlassian, was inspired by Atlas, the
ancient Greek Titan, whose role in life was to prevent
the sky from falling by holding it up, providing an
incredible service to the world. We strive to provide
that same level of "Legendary Service" to each and
every one of our customers.
2 guys - 20,000 customers
Atlassian's co-founders, Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar,
met at university and decided to start a company together at the
ages of 22.
Dissatisfied with the state of enterprise software - expensive, difficult
to configure, requiring huge investments in consulting to implement
and years to deploy - Mike and Scott set out to create a different
kind of company.
Mike and Scott founded Atlassian in 2002 and shipped our flagship
product, JIRA. The company was profitable that first year. By 2010,
Atlassian had more than 20,000 customers and 225 employees.
In the pursuit of creating uncomplicated, affordable software and
demonstrating new levels of openness, Atlassian has become a new
kind of software company - one that competes equally against free,
open source alternatives and commercial firms 100 times larger.
15,000 customers strong
a different kind of company
Atlassian is a different kind of software company, one that has rewritten the rules of enterprise software development
and sales. Here are a few reasons customers choose Atlassian products:
Affordable Software: Great enterprise software doesn't need to be expensive and rarely is it freely available for
trial. We encourage our customers to download and try our products and then purchase them from our website wit
