Job Description

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). We are a diverse team of individuals, all makers at heart. We love picking up new challenges and care deeply about the quality of our work.

As a small team, we’re all generalists and constantly picking up new challenges. When it comes to product and code, we’re looking to work with experienced people who can pick a problem and solve it. We use TypeScript and build scalable systems so we can continuously make progress on a solid foundation. We don’t expect you to have a background in everything we use, but we do expect strong JavaScript fundamentals and a background working with React, and ideally TypeScript.

  • Building new user-facing features with beautiful and scalable UI components
  • Work closely with founders and design to implement fast new feature concepts
  • Implement complex React components from drag & drop to virtualized rendering of large data collections
