Steve always knew he would end up programming. While studying at Wesleyan University in Illinois, math classes became computing classes, which led to a nine-year career developing computer software. When he was looking for a better fit, Steve found the humble approach and delivery-focused mission of Atlassian the perfect place to be.
Steve sees his role as twofold: People Development Manager and Organizer of the Work. In the former, he seeks out and hires the engineers who have a passion for helping people and want to contribute to the mission. In the latter, Steve creates a space for engineers to do the best work they can.
