Atlassian was famous for not hiring a sales team when they started. They believed that if all resources were directed at making a remarkable product, the sales would come. They were right, and Atlassian is today valued at more than $50 billion.

Benjamin Humphrey and Brad Ayers, two Atlassian alumni, took this obsession with product and started their own business, Dovetail. Dovetail’s software enables researchers to use their data in a way not previously possible.
