Our product team uses Basecamp and JIRA to plan out sprints and scrums. Our design, merchandising and marketing teams use either Trello or Asana. We allow teams to use the tool they want rather than standardizing it across the business. We think that each team is unique in their own way so whatever tools is most effective to help them achieve their goals is fine. We’re pretty tool agnostic and it has happened organically because people latch on to certain tools. I personally like Trello because it’s simple and easy to use with its kanban style.

Trello is easy. It does everything you want it to do. Our development and growth pipeline are in there.

We use Trello for everything product-related and really for any project we’re doing. It’s great for things like technical bugs. We report everything there, whether it’s a new feature request or a robust QA process. We even use it to keep track of candidates during our hiring process.

Trello - Best Project Management Tools for Startups

Trello is a free project management tool that facilitates smooth collaboration across teams. Extremely user-friendly, intuitive and great for nontechnical audiences, Trello allows you to create lists and cards to manage projects, though it doesn’t have the extra bells and whistles of some of the bulkier project management tools. Its simple approach and friendly UX make Trello an especially good choice for Seed-stage and Series A startups that don’t have to support a big infrastructure or project pipeline.

How startups use Trello?

Trello can be used by groups of all sizes, though it is most appreciated by early-stage startups who value its lightweight and straightforward approach to project management.

How much does Trello cost?

It’s free! Business Class and Enterprise packages (starting at $3.75/user/month) are available for organizations that desire additional features like single sign-on and an account feature, as well as additional security precautions like hourly data backup and full SLL protocol.
