We have some exciting news! Starting today Trello is its own company.
So far over 4.5 million people have signed up for Trello. Every month, we have over 1 million active users on our site. The iOS Trello app has been featured in the App Store and the Android app is a Google Play Editor’s Choice. But numbers and accolades don’t mean much compared to the tons of love we get from our users every single day. Nothing is more thrilling than seeing people blog and tweet about Trello. It’s been awesome for us to see such encouraging feedback.
The great thing about Trello is that you can use it to organize almost anything. Video game companies are publishing their roadmaps online using Trello. City governments are using Trello to coordinate their open data. People are onboarding new hires, tracking their applicants, renovating their homes, and managing their sales pipelines. Classrooms are even answering the whimsical questions middle schoolers have about the world. People use Trello in so many different ways.
We want to do even more. We want 100 million people to experience Trello. We want to add new features and make Trello faster. We want to make everything on this board happen as quickly as possible. And to do all of that, we need to hire more people and grow our company.
Trello started as a proud product of Fog Creek. Today, Trello is evolving to Trello Inc., a proud independent company. This transition has allowed us to raise money from investors and accelerate our growth.
So how does this affect you, our faithful Trello users? Don’t worry! All the good stuff you’ve come to know and love about Trello will stay the same. We are going to keep making Trello better so you can keep recommending it to your coworkers and friends. And now we’ll be able to do that faster.
Thank you for making this possible and for helping us spread Trello across the globe. And please stay tuned. We have a lot more more to show you.
ps. We are hiring!
