The magic of software
Computers used to be magical. But much of that magic has been lost over time, replaced by subpar tools and practices that slow teams down and hold great work back.
Frustrated with building and managing software projects in high-growth companies ourselves, we founded a company to build something better.
We named it Linear to signify progress.
Our team has led and delivered large-scale software and design projects in multiple startups and high-growth environments like Uber, Airbnb and Coinbase.
