Jay Simons

Atlassian
President

Jay Simons is the president of Atlassian, a collaboration software company that helps teams organize, discuss and complete work. More than 57,000 large and small organizations - including some of the biggest names in media, manufacturing and technology such as Citigroup, eBay, Coca-Cola, Visa, Procter & Gamble, BMW and NASA - use Atlassian's project tracking, collaboration, communication, service management and development products to work smarter and deliver quality results on time.

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.

Jay has more than 18 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.
