Atlassian Marketplace , Bengaluru

Hi,

It seems like the Atlassian Marketplace's product development is moving to Bengaluru (based on the opportunities on their careers page). And yes, Atlassian is setting up their first office in India. :)

I would like to know from current or former employees about how big or critical Atlassian Marketplace is for the company.

Any insights into the company and work culture would be great.

Thanks in advance.

    Appdynamics ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Just because its moved to Bangalore, doesnโ€™t mean its on a downhill. Each Atlassian office location has product development. Marketplace is important and definitely not on a downhill. OP, you should ask these questions to hiring manager and people who interview you. Interview is a 2 way street. Read the company values. Culture fit is equally important to us.

      Not sure of the tech stack, but we at Atlassian primarily use GO, java, nodejs and python. I dont know about frontend. We heavily use AWS.
      There are few people who use Haskel, kotlin, scala but its a minority. People are more inclined towards kotlin than scala. Hope this helps. ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

      Most of the new development that I've seen is either Spring Boot (Java and a little Kotlin) or nodejs microservices (not sure where the Golang is) and lots of Python in the ops stuff (not sure where it's used in product) but there is a LOT of old Java using OSGi + Hibernate + antique frameworks (not struts, but similar age) in the classic apps and things built around them. Not sure what Marketplace is on, but it's been around logg enough there may be some of the old stuff.

      On the frontend Atlassian uses React for most new projects. We even have our own public component library called Atlaskit.

    Run. Marketplace is being hugely deprioritized by Atlassian. Itโ€™s been on a downward trajectory for years and itโ€™s only going to get worse with offshoring.

      BlueJeans Iโ€™m close with someone from the marketplace team who left 3 weeks ago. Iโ€™ve also been interviewing some of their candidates who want to jump ship.

      Damn. So this could be just a back-office for maintenance and bug fixes, if any.. :/

      I don't see what else could be built into the Marketplace unless the Bengaluru office plans to get more of Atlassian's products.

      Atlassian just announced $500 M lifetime rev for marketplace. Itโ€™s growing like mushrooms and being reprioritized by company leadership.

      Atlassian definitely isn't 'hugely deprioritising' marketplace. Not sure where this guy gets his information from but Marketplace is a huge cash cow for atlassian and is only going to continue to grow in Bengaluru.

      They would've relocated because hiring devs at scale is really hard in Sydney. They're probably the biggest non-bank tech employer already. Now they're competing with Amazon for the good ones who can jump the leetcode hoops.

    Hi @Doremon2
    Yes the stack used in Marketplace is scala with scalaz. As we decompose the app, individual microservices may be implemented in a different stack that best fits their characteristics

  • Will the Bangalore office be doing anything in Scala or Haskell? Kindly share any info. It will be super cool if they have a dev center in BLR in Haskell or Scala

      OP
      For backend role, it seems like "Scala" is a nice to have. Along with NoSql database.

    • Nice to have doesnโ€™t mean much .... I know that Altassian does have projects in Haskell and Scala. Want to know if any of that work is a part of the project moving to BLR.

      OP
      Good point. I would like to work on Scala as well. Let's hope a current employee replies to this.
