“Starting in Sydney, the branded AtlassiVan will make its way to key locations in the country where emerging technology talent has been identified, including Canberra, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide, Newcastle, Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Sunshine Coast,” the company said.
What are the perks?
The RV is designed to showcase the company’s ‘work from anywhere policy’, which allows employees to work remotely.
“We believe the future of work is distributed because amazing talent exists everywhere. All Atlassians have the freedom to choose where they work — whether it’s at home, an office, (or van!),” it said.
Atlassian is currently advertising jobs in engineering, sales, customer experience, support and people, amongst others.
Atlassian has kept mum on salary expectations. But, according to some reports, the tech company is high-paying.

This puts it on par with Google and trading firm Akuna Capital, and slightly ahead of Canva ($173,000) and Amazon ($153,000) for graduate salaries, the report found.
Atlassian plans to grow to 25,000 staff in the next four years, with the new recruits pushing the company’s global workforce to over 10,000.
