I recently accepted an offer as a full-stack developer for Atlassian (P4). I have about 2 years of experience.
My first company was about 12 people (all engineers, no teams) and my current company is about 400 people (about 20 engineers, with my team size being 5 people). The team I'm moving to at Atlassian has about 100 engineers in total, and the team I will be on should have around 10 engineers I have been told. The hiring manager said that the teams are made up mostly of mid-level and senior engineers.
What can I do to make sure I get up to speed in ample time and be able to make an impact? I would like to become very career focused starting with this job and focus on advancement. My main concern is that maybe my experience in only smaller teams at smaller companies will cause friction for me as it will be a big adjustment.
Transitioning from a small company to a massive company like Atlassian can definitely be a big culture shock. Here are the resources I recommend:
As a bonus after going through the above 3, it seems like there is a good pool of senior engineers to potentially mentor you (you could also find an engineer on the higher-end of P4 to help here). Here's some advice on how to find a proper mentor in your company. I wouldn't worry too much about this in your first month though - This is something that's more 2-3 months out after you join.
Thanks! I'll take a look at all of those. I appreciate it Alex.
