It’s won a number of local awards already for being a great place to work, and Australian tech success story Atlassian is making waves on the world stage too, coming in seventh on a list of the most attractive companies for tech workers.

Job listing website Hired conducted a survey of more than 2300 US employees in the tech and startup sectors, reports Recode, with workers asked to rate their level of interest in working at various tech companies in different US capital cities. A top 10 global list was also compiled.

Number one on the list is Elon Musk’s SpaceX, followed by Google and Shopify. Musk grabs another spot at rank four with Tesla, followed by Netflix and Slack.

Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar’s Atlassian took out seventh place. Atlassian has repeatedly received similar accolades as a desirable workplace in Australia, coming in as number three on Great Place to Work Australia’s annual survey two years in a row.

The company has also been named one of Australia’s best graduate employers and even managed to rival tech giant Google as a desirable workplace in the early days of the company.

Here are the top ten most desirable global tech companies to work at, according to Hired:

1. SpaceX
