Australia tech scene

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.

      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.

      Afterpay is a great place to work. Some teams are stronger and get across more interesting work, but that’s true for pretty much any company. There has been a tremendous amount of growth in the past year.

    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.

    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 One of my friends quit her job and then Atlassian rescinded their offer!
