Overview

At Linear, we are on a mission to create a new standard for modern software development. We are building the tools that empower the next generation of high-impact companies to do their best work. Linear is designed based on the practices and processes that distinguish world-class product teams from the rest: relentless focus, fast execution, and a commitment to the quality of craft.

Founded in 2019, Linear has become the default tool of choice for high-performance teams to build their products. Set up as a fully remote company from the start, our team is currently distributed across a variety of countries across the US, Latin America and Europe (we hire within US/EU timezones).
