Atlassian Closes $60 Million Investment

Many of my techie friends may have come across this, but for those who have not… well we had some big news this week at Atlassian!  We closed a $60 Million investment from Accel Partners.  This is a huge step for our company and is the largest-ever single investment that Accel has made in a software company (greater than some big names including Facebook, Macromedia/Flash and Dropbox).

In true Atlassian form, of course we had to celebrate the news.  This week the entire SF staff spent an evening at Slide in downtown San Francisco.  Usually this bar has a slide that you can enter from, but I guess it was closed off for our group.  Probably a good thing!

Indeed these are exciting times to be working for Atlassian.  I’m really pumped at the opportunities that we have over the coming months and years.  Looking to join our group?  We have plenty of job openings and are looking to expand.  Come and join the fun!
