BIOGRAPHY

 

Jay is president of Atlassian, an award-­‐winning enterprise software company that helps innovators everywhere plan, build, and launch great software. He is responsible for all revenue-­‐generating activities of the company, including customer success and retention, operations and marketing. Atlassian has more than 20,000 customers—including Microsoft, Facebook, Cisco, Oracle, Proctor & Gamble, Exxon, BMW and NASA—using its collaboration and software development products to work smarter and deliver faster results.

Jay joined the company in 2008 as vice president of sales and marketing to lead Atlassian's pioneering efforts to develop a high-­‐velocity, low-­‐touch sales model. He's overseen the company's global expansion, introduction of its Starter License program (a disruptive approach to "freemium" where the company donates all proceeds to a charitable cause), and its growing worldwide customer community and programs. In 2011 Atlassian introduced its cloud-­‐based offering Atlassian OnDemand, an evolution of its fast-­‐growing SaaS platform.

Jay has more than 14 years of experience in the software industry. He began his career at Plumtree Software where he held a variety of senior marketing and sales roles. Significantly, Jay oversaw the company's expansion throughout Europe and Asia Pacific. When Plumtree was acquired by BEA Systems in 2005, Jay became vice president of marketing for BEA Systems, which was later acquired by Oracle in

2008. Jay holds a bachelor's degree in political and environmental science from the University of Washington.
