In 2001, entrepreneur Scott Johnson had an idea for a software package that would allow companies to better manage workflow and communication.[6] After having a workable version of his software, he founded AtTask, along with Abe Knell, Jason Fletcher and Nate Bowler.[5][6] In July 2001, AtTask released @task, a project management tool designed for businesses.[7] The nascent company was boot-strapped and funded in part by a second mortgage Johnson took out on his home.[6]

Johnson decided to completely rewrite the company's project management platform in 2003.[5][6] The rewritten version of @task was finished and released in 2006.[5][6] Joseph Cardenas joined AtTask’s board of directors in April 2007.[8] Prior to joining AtTask, Cardenas served as a partner at Counterpoint Advisers and CIO of[8]

In June 2007, AtTask received $7 million in funding from OpenView Venture Partners.[1] The $7 million investment equaled more than twice AtTask's 2006 revenue.[1] OpenView's investment was the first outside investment accepted by AtTask.[1] OpenView invested an additional $6.5 million in December 2009.

In 2011, Eric Morgan replaced founder Scott Johnson as president and CEO of AtTask.[2][9] Johnson became chairman of AtTask.[9]

In November 2012, AtTask raised $17 million in venture capital in a funding round led by Greenspring Associates.[2] The company raised an additional $38 million in a January 2014 funding round led by JMI Equity.[10] The 2014 funding round was their fourth included additional investment by Greenspring Associations.[11][12] The company announced a 50% year over year subscription growth rate.[10]
