Our engineers use JIRA for product development. They are the only ones that they can understand it. It’s pretty ugly, and the user interface is complicated.

We tried JIRA, but it’s very technical. It is a better tool for bigger companies. We wanted to have a more fluid structure.

JIRA is too heavyweight for us.

20%Stacklist Startups Are Using JIRA
Because JIRA is so complex, smaller teams with simpler organizational needs tend to shy away from it in favor of something easier to use. As such, JIRA is disproportionately favored by larger series A and B companies that have plenty of employees and a more involved development process.
JIRA has three packages, depending on your needs: a “for projects” package that handles issue tracking only; a “for development” package that handles both issue tracking and project management; and a “for service desk” package that also handles service requests. Like most project management tools, you can purchase a monthly subscription to JIRA that increases in cost depending on the number of users (the cheapest monthly package starts at $10 per month for 10 users), or you can purchase your own server. The latter option starts at $10 for 10 users, but jumps quickly to $1,200 as soon as you exceed 10 users; at that point, the payments shift from monthly to annual and the you (the user) are responsible for server management.
