Atlassian Corporation, the Australian software firm, is gearing to expand its India team strength to about 3,000. Over the next two years, it plans to hire talent from various colleges and educational institutions it has partnered with in the country. Right now, about 1,400 people from its global team of 8,000 are based out of India.
It will be relying on its hackathons to tap quality talent and also pick the best talent via placement drives, in line with its ‘Grad Recruitment Programme’.
The firm is on the lookout for talent in the areas of product and design, and engineering.
The Company is working towards offering research students opportunities to apply their research in the Company. It is keen to be part of the research projects of various institutes and collaborate with them to plug any skill gaps in their curricula.
Atlassian’s ‘Team Anywhere’ initiative offers employees flexibility to work from home, from anywhere in the world, and it hopes the policy will attract talent from all over India too.
Presently, its India R&D team is the one that is growing at the most rapid rate, globally.
Globally, Atlassian seeks to hire about 25,000 people over the next four years.
