Is it worth relocating from Eindhoven to Sydney for atlassian ?

I have got an offer from Atlassian Sydney for senior software engineer. And the offer seems good but the cost of living in Sydney is so high that it makes me wonder is it worth relocating. I am comfortably settled in Eindhoven with family for the past 4 years and wondering if this move to Sydney for a career in atlassian is really worth it ? Has someone done this kind of move ? And can someone in atlassian comment about the work life there ?

    There is only one place to be for an SWE - USA. The actual city is debatable. (Worked in NL for 2 years)

    TC? If the TC is greater than 200k just move.

      Yes it's good. Overall it should be around 180k.

      No. Sydney is more expensive than SF. 140k will feel like poverty with a family your size.

      140 aud or usd? If aud better move to Amsterdam. You'll feel poor in Sydney.

    I moved from Europe to Sydney. Can confirm, with a family of 3 and income less than aud200k you'll feel poor, unless you move far to the west where life isn't that pretty. Pm me if you got more questions

    Atlassian Sydney is crap. I worked there. Full of politics and legacy products. Atlassian US might be better. Sydney City is beautiful but too expensive

      But why did you move to Amazon Canada from there. It's not great either.

      Got sick of politics. Also much better offer at Amazon.

      I preferred the culture in Atlassian Sydney (though I was working on platform, not products). I'm living much more comfortably in the bay area, but I don't enjoy my work as much.

    Agree with above. Rent is going to be a large portion of your expenses. And you won’t get all the benefits that Auzzies get until you are a PR, eg free medical, subsidized daycare etc
