We came, we saw and we SXSWed HARD. Not to pat ourselves on the back, but if you weren’t in Austin for SXSW’s Tech Week, you missed out. The HipChat party was an epic success. People lined up out the door to get into our offices. We had gigantic Jenga, classic arcade games, free tacos, Frito pie, there were even cut out’s of Bill Lumbergh for the ever – important photo op.

Lots of folks looked around and saw all of the Atlassian’s enjoying their teammates, people laughing and having a great time together, so naturally, they wanted to know how they could work for us. Since, we’re always hiring the best and the brightest, we were stoked to tell them all about what we do.
People clamored to talk to our staff decked out in their sweet black and gold HipChat shirts. We answered questions about what HipChat does for teams, as well as talk to people who’ve never heard of Atlassian. For our second year in town, we made a lot of new friends, and hopefully, some of those friends will check out our products.

What we enjoyed the most about the HipChat party was the overwhelming sense of camaraderie from everyone involved. No drama, no one harshing the buzz, just a lot of great folks chatting, dancing like fools, while perfect strangers embodied the connectivity that HipChat champions. It was a great night to meet new people, learn about new technology and have a cold drink in the great city of Austin, TX.
