Jira vs Trello

Collaboration doesn’t have to be hard. Whether your software team needs a flexible board to brainstorm new product ideas or a customized scrum board to run your next sprint, Atlassian has you covered.

Jira is more than a project management tool

Jira fulfills the advanced needs of software teams and comes with the power and flexibility that agile teams need to ship value to customers faster.

Jira Software

Purpose-built for agile teams

Out-of-the-box scrum and kanban templates, comprehensive agile reports, and actionable metrics and reports give teams everything they need to build world-class software.

Scale your way of working

Only Jira has the breadth of functionality to support growing teams by providing structure and visibility without compromising flexibility and customization.

Customize your workspace

Jira is open by default and integrates with thousands of tools, apps, and add-ons spanning every use case and team type.

“Jira is instrumental in building and maintaining the best software on the market.”

Daniele Farned

CTO, Trulia


Trello is the flexible work management tool that empowers all teams to plan, track, and accomplish their work, their way.


Organize anything

From personal to-dos and big projects to launching a startup and building a business, Trello's boards, lists, and cards are suited to any task.

Modernize your meetings

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a team retrospective, a 1:1, a daily stand-up, or a large cross-functional team. Teams of any size and in any place can use Trello to manage all of the ways they meet together.

Simple on the surface

81% of customers chose Trello for its ease of use. Spin up a Trello board in seconds, and customize it with the apps and features you need.
