Anyone here from Australia? What are the companies with good culture and tech?

Anyone from Atlassian, Canva, Zendesk, Afterpay or Seek give any insights?

    I'm originally from Sydney. The Australian tech scene is absolute garbage.

    The only decent office there is Google, but the people who work there are insufferable because they know they're probably the only decent place around.

    Atlassian is ok, good culture, but work is really dry.

    Canva has delusional leadership, and they've hired a bunch of low quality engineers recently ("Software Engineers" from Woolworths, who are literally the Albertsons of Australia).

    There are definitely some hidden gems around (at least in Sydney), I've heard Dolby has some interesting positions for example. But overall the scene is terrible.

    Zendesk has pretty great work culture. I’d recommend talking to some of the teams that work on the Support product or data science there.

    Have any of u two actually worked at atlassian.....companies rescind offers all the time. U are not smart if u drop interviews one u get first offer. Always keep interviewing until start date

      My point is don’t demonize a great company because of one bad example of something all companies do (although rarely). Most people will agree with me. Especially people at atlassian. I’d rather be here than at cap one, that’s for sure

      Hey I don’t work in Cap1 anymore, don’t get touchy, your company has done it for 3 people that I know in last few months for MTV location! So don’t try to take such an altruistic position. On the other hand companies like Slack( which did beat the hell out of you guys!) gave candidate a much fair process and choice and haven’t heard any whispers about them rescinding offers! There’s even a rumor that Atlassian is shrinking their MTV business by year end!

      Sorry for coming off negative. Didn’t mean to be so dickish. I def believe it happened to 3 people.....hard to trust companies in general.

      Interesting I haven’t heard any of those rumors and haven’t seen them in our blind room either. We’re actually growing like crazy and are actively hiring.

      What positions were the ones that got pulled?

      Still agree fucked up to renege after 10 days from acceptance of offer.

      Hmm now that u say that I know there was some shuffling of some people within Confluence. Wonder if that’s related. I could see that happen with Confluence. I really like Confluence, but only after I realized how you should be using it and if everyone uses it as a team. It’s got the problem that it’s hard to show it’s use when u are trying to sell a company on it.....I’m surprised at how many tech companies that don’t have proper documentation that could be helped by Confluence.

    Atlassian is a company to avoid by all means, they pull out offers from people after its past 10 days! One of my friends quit her job and then Atlassian rescinded their offer!
