Congratulations, you have been chosen to become a part of the Confluence team! How exciting is that?
On second thoughts, don't answer that.
By now you should have a desk, a chair and a computer running your operating system of choice. If you don't, grab somebody because you've missed the first couple of stages of your induction. Otherwise, make sure you are sitting comfortably and we'll continue.
If you are not sitting comfortably, please sign an occupational health and safety claims waiver form immediately.
About The Confluence Development Team
The Confluence Development Team is responsible for the development of Confluence, the enterprise wiki. Imagine a gigantic funnel. Thousands of feature and improvement suggestions and bug reports pour into the top, and a top quality enterprise wiki comes out at the bottom. You're sitting in the middle.
What hours do I need to work?
You are contracted to work an 8.5 hour day, including one hour for lunch. We're pretty relaxed about when you start and finish work each day, so long as you:
- put in the hours
- show up for scheduled meetings (including the daily 10am stand-up)
- let your team leader know in advance if you're going to be gone at some time you'd normally be expected to be around
We also do a lot of pair-programming, so if you know you're working with a pair and one of you habitually works 8-5 and the other 10-7, you should probably work it out between yourselves to show up at the office at the same time.
Procedures for sick leave and annual leave should already have been explained to you as part of your company induction.
The Confluence team uses many different resources and tools to go about their various functions including:
- Staff Contact List - photos and contact information of all Atlassian staff
- The CONFDEV space
- The documentation, discussion and extensions spaces on confluence.atlassian.com
- Charles' Poker Corner – explains where half the team vanishes to on Friday lunchtimes
- The Communication Methods page contains some RSS feeds you should subscribe to, including the Atlassian del.icio.us feeds.
