How we started

We were early adopters of Slack and we have been using Jira to manage projects for as long as we can remember. When we first came to Slack we were surprised to learn that integration to Jira was not available and decided to build an integration we could use ourselves.

After we built the product we thought other teams might want to us it and decided to release a public beta. We even built a fancy logo (see it here) and teams signed up for the beta from day 1. Paul Wozniak on product hunt then discovered us and was nice enough to submit our integration.

In March of 2017 we came out of beta and as they say, the rest is history. Today we have teams all sizes from all over the world using our products and most importantly telling us and the world that they love using them. Check out our reviews to see what people are saying.
