As a countdown to the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting at Davos, we’re profiling all 30 of our fellow 2011 Tech Pioneer award winners. Check our full profile series to learn more.
What they do:
Atlassian makes software development and collaboration tools that help technical teams work more efficiently–cutting down the time from idea to product and allowing software developers to stay organized and on track. Atlassian sells its products on the Internet at relatively cheap prices.
Why it’s cool:
Getting to work on time, without forgetting your lunch, one of your shoes, or that important meeting brief, is hard enough. Atlassian makes your life at work easier by keeping projects organized and facilitating open communication. As a company, Atlassian is also extraordinarily community-minded; the Atlassian Foundation encourages staff volunteering and matched giving, and Atlassian provides all of its products for free to non-profits.
