Atlassian Corporation Plc has come 19th in India in a survey conducted by the Great Place to Work Institute. The ranking was based on responses from employees and the employer support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“India’s technology talent is world-class. Not only is it our fastest growing R&D site globally, but it’s also our fastest growing talent location. After only three years, we are thrilled to be one of the best places to work. We do what it takes to attract, nurture and retain incredibly talented people,” said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Co-founder and Co-CEO, Atlassian.
In April, the company announced it would hire around 1,000 R&D engineers globally, of which 300 would be from India, making it one of the biggest recruitment drives in 2021.
The new recruits would start at Atlassian’s world-class R&D centre in Bengaluru. The centre already has 700 engineers. The company has launched a Candidate Resource Hub to help prospective candidates prepare for interviews.
Amid the pandemic, Atlassian has adopted a distributed work model and is also building on its employee benefits such as increased mental health support and access to expert resources, special leave, and additional resilience workshops for staff. The firm has also announced a USD$500 stipend for staff to create an optimal workspace.
“We believe that by empowering our own employees to unleash their potential, we will fulfil our mission of helping our customers around the world unleash their potential too,” said Dinesh Ajmera, Site Lead and Head of Engineering, Bengaluru, Atlassian.
