The Business

Software is seeping into every industry imaginable. With its flagship products JIRA and Confluence, Atlassian laid the foundation for a broad suite of tools that engineering teams use to manage the software development process – end to end. Today, that suite has grown to include everything from Git repository management (BitBucket) through to continuous integration (Bamboo). The company serves more than 40,000 organizations around the world, including Facebook, Cisco, Netflix, NASA, LinkedIn and more.

The Partnership

Accel led Atlassian’s first-ever funding round in 2010 to support the company’s global expansion. This helped kickstart Atlassian’s San Francisco operation (now home to almost half the company) and support and development offices around the world. Today the company has more than 1,100 employees in eight offices across six countries.
