Fast growing startups are built on Linear

We launched Linear exactly one year ago to help high-performing teams who wanted a better way to build software. Linear is fast, effortless, and simple to use. It streamlines core aspects of product team workflows so that they can focus on the work that matters while our tool does the rest.

Building at the early stage

We knew how to code, design and ship but we didn’t know how to prioritize effectively, set meaningful goals, or keep the momentum up week after week. While at the very beginning this is not that critical. It becomes more when you get to the stage of having a product and user to support. You need some structure to keep making meaningful progress and not going around in circles.

Invisible details - Building contextual menus

We recently added contextual menus to Linear. This makes the app faster and easier to use for people who prefer their mouse.

One small thing that you won’t see or think about but will hopefully *feel* is a detail we designed into how sub-menus work.

Linear’s Next Chapter: Announcing our $4.2M Seed Round

At Linear, we are creating software for startups and companies who look to create impact. We believe creators should focus on the work they create, not manually tracking their work. Managers should spend their time prioritizing and giving direction, not bugging their teams for updates. Running the process shouldn’t sap your team’s energy and come in the way of creating.
