Sydney headquartered collaboration software company, Atlassian has started its operations in India and opened its first office in Bengaluru, with a plan to grow the office into a world-class R&D and customer support center during the next several years.
Scott Farquhar, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of the company believes that Bengaluru has exceptional technical talent, leadership, and business infrastructure that naturally aligns with their long-term company goals.
To smoothly run its business in India, Atlassian has hired senior executives from leading companies. To begin with, it has hired former Amazon and Walmart Labs executive Dinesh Ajmera as Head of Engineering and Site Lead. It has also roped in executives from BPO company 7.ai, furniture retailer Urban Ladder, professional networking platform LinkedIn and technology company VMWare. And the company plans to hire more in the coming months and expand by adding a number of engineering, recruitment, design, product management, and customer support roles.
“Behind every success is a team and Atlassian's mission is to unleash the potential of every team. I am super excited to join that company mission and build out the new site in Bengaluru,” said Dinesh Ajmera.
Atlassian's new office is located in a temporary space at Embassy Golflinks Business Park, with plans to move to another, larger location in the next year. Found in 2002 by Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar, the team collaboration and productivity software company, currently, serves more than 1,12,000 customers, including Citigroup, eBay, Coca-Cola, Visa and BMW.
