The Marketing Analytics team blazes new trails to enable important growth decisions, so we're constantly growing, learning, and doing things differently. We are able to distill highly sophisticated analytical terminology and concepts into easily consumable language, and we partner with marketing teams to transmit that knowledge effectively.

We've been described as creative, but detailed, because we're dedicated to an agile methodology that enables adapting quickly while still ensuring quality results. We also know all too well the importance of validating assumptions in our data, and we use various types of testing to prove those assumptions. It's all about enabling Atlassian to grow by delivering data in the right way to partners across the company.
