Atlassian seeks geeks in Europe

'We're hiring, let's meet in the pub'

Boost IT visibility and business value

Atlassian, Australia's current darling-of-the-VCs, has orchestrated a European recruitment drive it says is designed to snare fifteen developers in fifteen days.

The company says it will be investing “millions” in creating new engineering positions in the year ahead and is looking offshore to fulfil the Australian tech brain drain.

Atlassian VP Joris Luijke, also a European import, said that the rapidly growing company was taking advantage of a depressed European job market hit by economic slump. “I expect more Australian tech companies to recruit in Europe,” Luijke forecast.

The ambitious enterprise software company will launch a Euro ‘Recruitment Roadshow’ in London from April 12th, which will include a bus tour across four European cities – London, Amsterdam, Berlin and Madrid – to recruit fifteen senior software developers who will be relocated to the company’s Sydney, Australia-based headquarters.

Lucky participants will be picked up from various locations around each city, bussed to a secret pub location for an evening of socializing with Atlassian’s Engineering team over beers and informal talks. Formal interviews will take place in each city for two days.

“Atlassian is rapidly expanding at an incredible pace. The quickest way for us to grow is by attracting some of the best and brightest developers from Europe”, Luijke said.

”We’re planning to invest millions in new engineering jobs at Atlassian this year, so now is a great time to join,” he added.

Relocation assistance and benefits include help gaining work visas for applicants, as well as visas for their partners, payment of relocation expenses, and a slew of additional perks.

Pre-screening will start today (March 1) for Java and JavaScript developers with around six years' experience. ®
