All-in-one video editing, as easy as a doc

Linear’s performance is incredible - the best perceived speed of any web app I’ve ever used.

Linear is different. It has a better model and structure for engineering orgs. Sprints, points, priority, and status are all treated as first class properties of tasks. Search and filtering are powerful and the timeline view is one of the best I’ve seen.

Bringing video messaging to work

We tried Linear and suddenly all our task management problems went away. I think one of the main reasons was the speed. The team felt that they could get into the tool, find what they were looking for or figure out what they needed to do, and then get back to work.

That combined with the Inbox was helpful because now engineers felt like they could go to a single place to see what mattered to them. They didn’t have to go and look at the entire board or search through all the issues to figure it out.

The easiest way to develop, test, and ship universal apps

expo.io

A couple of things changed once the full team was on Linear. One is that we're able to track what is going on in a distributed company which had been hard to do with random docs and outdated lists. Everything is synced in Linear across views and with GitHub, so it’s always up to date. This means people are able to communicate better. They see what is happening and know who to ask questions or what is next.

The second thing is that using Linear built a culture around taking action. We started keeping better track of issues that used to get lost in Slack messages or conversations. It was so fast to create an issue and even enjoyable that people now create issues instead of talking about them.
