About this event
Old Street Solutions is an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner that makes software to simplify Atlassian’s powerful platforms.

Old Street’s apps are about eliminating barriers and bureaucracy so that everyone can be more useful to their teams. In 2020, its flagship app, Custom Charts for Jira, was the fastest-growing paid app in the Atlassian Marketplace.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Jamale Harris started out as a business account manager for AT&T and worked with some impressive names he now likes to drop regularly: Viacom, HBO, Thomson & Reuters, New York Yankees, Bank of America, etc.After five years with AT&T, he decided to follow in his family’s footsteps and join the United States Army. He garnered commendations, medals, and ultimately an honorable discharge once his obligations were fulfilled. He also completed a deployment in Poland and, after leaving the army, decided he rather liked it there and moved back.He met Old Street’s other Harris for dinner and Tom was so impressed that he offered Jamale a job during the main course. Jamale was drawn to the fact that Old Street’s products are targeted at less technical people using Jira, who’ve traditionally been sidelined (despite making up the majority of its users).Jamale also rollerskates and DJs — not necessarily at the same time, although that would be super-fun.
