Software has lost its magic.
We want your help to bring it back.

Remember when software still felt magical? Good software used to be an experience. It used to radically change how we lived and worked. It made us feel like we lived in the future.

Today, software is everywhere. But truly great software has become incredibly rare. Computers are faster, but apps work slower. Craftsmanship has been replaced with growth hacks. Visionary product ideas turned into incremental changes.

The magic of software got lost along the way. At Linear, we are on a quest to bring it back.

We are building the tools for the next generation of high-impact companies. The place where ambitious creators come to bring radical ideas to life. Our mission is to empower the world's best product and engineering teams to do their best work. To build products that feel magical again.

But we can't do it alone.

We are looking for talented people who share our passion for crafting exceptional software products. That person might be you.

Join us and let's bring back the magic of software.

We believe that the freedom to work remotely allows for deeper and more meaningful work. That’s why we built Linear as fully distributed company from the start.

When we arrived in Slovenia, we took two days off to acclimate, and spent it at a mountain-side hotel here, nestled between the two Alpine ranges.
