For every member of your software team

JIRA Software wasn’t designed just for a single person or role. JIRA Software was built to be the single tool that every member of your software team can use to collaborate, track and ship better software, faster.

Flexible and extensible

JIRA Software is the most customizable and powerful issue tracking system in the world. Every team has a unique process for shipping better software, faster, and JIRA Software can be easily personalized out-of-the-box to fit any team and any process.

One single source of truth

JIRA Software sits at the center of Atlassian’s world-class suite of developer tools, such as Confluence and Bitbucket, and serves as the single source of truth for your software project, from concept through to launch.

Scales from 5 to 10,000+

JIRA Software is built for teams of 10, teams of 10,000, and every sized team in between. Whether you’re a scrappy startup or already have an established team of thousands, JIRA Software is the one tool you can count on to never outgrow.

What JIRA Software customers are saying

The biggest benefit of consolidating our platform on [JIRA Software] has been providing a single point of visibility over our projects. Now we can see what everybody else is doing, and understand each project's status in great detail. That enables everyone to be on the same page.

—Daniele Farnedi, Chief Technology Officer, Trulia

At any given time, we can see, at a glance, the status of our projects, the volume we’re managing, as well as what defects are coming in and what the severity levels are. From there, we can quickly gauge who needs to be involved and at what level.

—Jennifer Johnson, Senior Manager in Localization Services, Autodesk

I wanted to let you know how incredibly valuable JIRA Software is to our organization. We very firmly feel that switching to JIRA Software was a critical enabler in allowing us to dramatically improve our development workflow and decrease the amount of time needed to deliver new projects. Simply put, it's become indispensable for us.


—Clark Ritchie, CTO, One Economy Corporation


With Bugzilla, it looked like we had to deal with too much configuration upfront. JIRA Software had almost all of the workflows, categories, and configuration in place; we had to do very little to get it up and running. We also needed an issue management system that was aware of agile workflows, like JIRA Software. This was another reason we didn't select Bugzilla.


—Scott Peterson, Senior Systems Analyst, Michael Baker Corporation


Over 50,000 companies around the world have chosen JIRA Software to ship higher quality code better and faster.
