This month, Harvest turns 5 years old.

When we launched the first version of Harvest, it was just a simple solution to the age-old problem of time tracking. It took a stance on simplicity and harnessed newly available technology and ideas. We built it to help us run our own consulting business back then, and we shared it with our colleagues who needed it.

With each passing year, we’ve improved our product, attracted more customers and gradually addressed other pain points related to time tracking, like invoicing. Today, Harvest serves customers in over 100 countries, and it’s exciting to work everyday with a growing team of amazing individuals.

Beyond Just Business

With our New Founders Program and contributions to open source, giving back to the communities around us has always been an important part of our business.

In recognition of our fifth year of business, we’re launching a 10-day “track your time for a cause” initiative. Every hour tracked by our customers who opt-in can go towards a good cause. Customers track time as they normally do, and we contribute to a good cause of their choice. It’s another small way for us to contribute to the ecosystem at large. Read more about this effort on our Giving Back page.

Thanks for your support over the last five years and we look forward to bringing you exceptional service over the next five years and beyond.
