Checkvist is a project of Kirill Maximov and Sasha Maximova.

We love web development, smart software, personally talking to customers, writing, coding, and working on the go.

We don’t like forgetting things and ideas, missing deadlines, breaking promises, and spending time on routine tasks.

We use Checkvist ourselves and keep track of tons of product and feature ideas that still await implementation.

Kirill is a full-stack developer at JetBrains, where he works on a continuous delivery server.

Sasha spent about a decade at JetBrains researching and UX-ing web-tools, and now works solely on Checkvist.

You can always reach out to us at kirsa@checkvist.com.

A bit of history

It all started about 10 years ago, after a late-night table talk with a friend.

Why do we find our code editors so convenient to work with? The keyboard support, the automatic completions, the intelligent and invisible interface let us dive into the work and enable a good flow.

Can we bring this power and this feeling into an online task manager and outliner?

That's how Checkvist started.

We never stopped working on it. With 1-2 updates each month, we kept our initial goal - minimal UI, efficiency, and speed of work. Our smart and passionate community ensures we're on course.

Join and help us define what comes next.

Many thanks!

Checkvist is bootstrapped and operates solely on the money paid by subscribers.

We are grateful to everyone who supports our project with subscriptions, advice, thoughts, comments, bug reports, incredible illustrations, and design ideas.

It's a pleasure to work for you.
