The Power of Shared Values

My favourite young software company Atlassian is hiring 32 new software developers despite the downturn. They have a fun recruitment video that states their very clear, very powerful and a little bit colourful values:

  • Open company, no bullshit
  • Build with heart and balance
  • Don’t fuck the customer
  • Play, as a team
  • Be the change you seek
