Commenting on the initiative, Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-founder and co-CEO, Atlassian said, “India’s tech talent is world-class, and we want to hire the smartest technical minds across the country. Since opening locally in 2018, India has become home to our fastest-growing R&D site globally, and our doors are now open to talent across all of India. Our engineers are working on hard problems, and significant products for our overall strategy - it's a true R&D hub for us.”
“I have witnessed the incredible growth of Atlassian in India first-hand and I’m excited to be part of our next growth journey. Atlassian’s ambitions reflect its long-term view of becoming a 100-year company, where talent, innovation, and passion converge,” Dinesh Ajmera, Site Lead India, Atlassian said. “As we rapidly grow in India, we want to hire bright and talented individuals who are excited to contribute to our goals; who value an open culture where everyone’s voice is heard; and who want to build products that continue to change how the world works,” he further explained.
