JIRA is mostly used for scrum for the dev team.

The sprint plans and everything happen in JIRA. We also use Bitbucket for our code repository. It’s from Atlassian, like JIRA, so it’s easy. We use them because the guy who uses it every day and experienced developers said we want to use JIRA. They use it everyday so I want them to be as comfortable as possible.

JIRA - Best Communication & Collaboration Tools for Startups

JIRA is the powerhouse of project management tools, boasting a flexible platform that’s geared specifically toward developers. While JIRA can handle a wide variety of tasks, including project planning, tracking and detailed release reporting, it has a decidedly technical bent. It’s not uncommon for companies to use JIRA only for their engineering teams, while all other teams use a lighter-weight tool like Trello or Asana.

How startups use 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.

How much does JIRA cost?

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.
