About Linear

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.

Today software is everywhere, but it’s become increasingly rare to encounter truly great software. Computers are faster but apps work slower. Corners are cut with each release. Product decisions are driven by A/B tests.

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’re creating software for teams who want to create impac We think the software you use every day to work should be of the highest quality. It should feel exciting and enticing. It should be fast. And you should feel empowered when using it. Professional tools should have professional quality.

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 tools we use should make us more powerful and help us to accomplish our goals. No matter what you are creating, we want to support you.

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’re building Linear to be a fully distributed company. Today our team is located in California, New York and Finland. We believe in the importance of having able to choose where you live without having to make trade-offs between work and being close to your family, community or interests.

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.

Linear’s founders are engineers and designers, and while we’ve had our tours in management, we’re ICs at heart. We want to feel proud of the work we do, and we want you to feel the same.
