The company is relocating from other downtown space to the Colorado Tower where it is taking two floors with plans to occupy a third floor after it completes a hiring spree.

Most of the new staff positions will be software engineers and technical support related to its HipChat software, a team messaging platform designed to enable co-workers to communicate in real time..

Atlassian, which was founded in 2002 by Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon-Brookes, employs 1,300 workers in eight locations. Its flagship product, called JIRA, manages workflow for teams of workers.
