Our story

Tempo is a cloud-first software company that helps teams at 10,000 companies—SMBs and large-scale enterprises—collaborate, plan and schedule resources, manage budgets, and track time directly from their daily workflow. Tempo started as a homegrown time tracking solution, which offered our software and business teams seamless integration with JIRA. It changed the way we worked.

We quickly realized this technology could help every team and business gain visibility over their work efforts for better collaboration and decision-making. Today, Tempo is a team of 90 peers with offices in Reykjavík, Iceland, Montréal, Canada, and San Francisco, USA.

We are one of the largest, award-winning, top-selling developers in the Atlassian ecosystem. Tempo offers three efficiency and visibility-enhancing products that extend JIRA to help IT, software development, consultancy, and business teams work smarter.

Building leadership

Tempo has been a top-selling Atlassian Ecosystem developer since 2009. We're committed to giving back and improving communities around the world. Through our starter license program, we've donated more than $85,000 to Room to Read, a not-for-profit organization founded by former Microsoft executive John Wood, which seeks to improve literacy and gender equality in education in the developing world.

In 2014, we joined Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of equity, product, and employee time for their communities, because pledging a small portion of future success today can have a huge impact tomorrow.
