About LeanKit

We are that rare company you’ve been seeking: an early stage software company with genuine sales, growth, funding, and disruptive products.

Our customers are around the globe with tens of thousands of users, including some of the most recognizable brands in the world.

Oh, and we’ve got Nerf guns, a dartboard, Lego bricks, snacks, standing desks, and a TARDIS (For all of you Dr. Who fans).
