Software used to be magical. We were excited about the new possibilities it opened up.
As the decades went by, software became more common. It became a larger part of our lives and an important part of how the world operates.
We’ve lost the magic along the way. And the result is software that’s frustrating and boring to use.
We want to bring that magic back.
Linear was born out of our own frustrations in building software projects in successful high-growth companies. We saw the effects of subpar tools and practices in our teams, so we decided to build something better.
We chose the name Linear to signify progress.
We truly believe that the tools teams use directly impact the outcome of their work. Bad tools encourage bad habits. Good tools encourage good habits.
The company was founded 2019, and today, hundreds of high-impact teams and companies are already using Linear daily to build next generation software.
We’re backed by some of the best founders, angels and venture capitalists in the industry.
We believe that the freedom to work remotely reduces distractions and allows for deeper and more meaningful work. That’s why Linear will support and even help create the workflows and tools of this new way of working.
We believe that the quality of software is driven both by the talent of its creators and how they feel while they’re crafting it. Teams that are excited, engaged and proud of their work build better software.
Right now we’re building our founding team, hiring people who believe in the mission of great software and are excited to be a part of building next-generation of tooling for software teams. Learn more about our principles and practices from Linear Method.
