The Work Experience

Growing too fast? Install a portal.

There’s no news yet as to how this portal is being utilised but its a nice idea spawned by the desire to make an expanding team feel more connected.

Atlassian is growing…fast.  We expanded into a new floor and I was given the challenge of making it feel more Atlassian.  I wanted to make something decorative, but also functional.  Keeping the company connected becomes more challenging the bigger we grow, we span multiple buildings so some teams can go days without seeing each other.  Staff do chat through Instant Messaging (IM) frequently, but people communicate more effectively when they are face-to-face.
