Zenhub API

Create a tailor-made project process with the Zenhub API

What the Zenhub API can help you unlock

Develop your own product management flow and unlock the full power of Zenhub

No two projects are
the same

Between developers, product managers, and designers – everyone’s workflow is just a bit different. Our API puts the power of Zenhub at your fingertips with a modern, accessible, and robust GraphQL API.

Modify metadata
on your terms

Programmatically update sprints, epics, estimates, and more based on your own custom rules, no matter how complex. Bulk edit issue metadata to make refinement, planning, or status updates a breeze across workspaces and issues.

Create and move issues at your command

Move beyond workflows and into ultra-customized scripts and triggers that complement your workflow. Open, close, and edit issues based on events outside of Zenhub.

Roll your own reports:

With access to the same data that powers our in-product reports and insights, the data visualization and metric calculation possibilities are endless. Customize reporting to focus on the metrics that matter most all while retaining access to the out-of-box Zenhub reports.

Flexible parental leave

We understand the importance and demands of a growing family. In addition to state, provincial, and federal leave allowances, parents on the team have the flexibility to work from home or take days off when family needs to come first.

Flexible time off

We have a flexible time off policy with no hard limit. We encourage people to take a minimum of 3 weeks off per year.

Flexible working hours

We understand that productivity is personal. We allow you to work when it works best for you, as long as you overlap with your team’s core hours by five hours.

Home office reimbursement

We enable our team to do their best work, anywhere. We provide all the equipment you need to work from home, plus an additional monthly stipend to cover ongoing remote work expenses, like internet or sticky notes.

Wellbeing commitment

We want you to bring your whole self to work, and understand our team members have a life outside of ZenHub. We offer coverage for mental health support through our benefits provider as well as a list of comprehensive wellness resources in our company Wiki.

Fitness reimbursements

We provide a monthly budget for fitness related benefits, like gym memberships, app subscriptions, equipment rentals, and online classes, so you can get your body moving, wherever you are.

Expanded insurance

We provide health, life, and AD&D insurance, as well as premium vision, dental, and extended health benefits. We feature reimbursement for holistic health expenses such as acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, and more.

Top-of-the-line equipment

Everyone gets an Apple laptop, large second monitor, personal gadget budget, and more. Models dependent upon needs and department function.

Company-paid phone and plan

Opt to either get on our company phone plan or receive a monthly reimbursement if you prefer to stay on your own.

New tech budget

Every team member receives an annual equipment budget to try the latest and greatest gadgets, platforms, and products.


Our focus is on how you work, not where you work. We support you in doing your best work wherever you're most productive, whether that’s from home or in our office.

Together – even from afar

At ZenHub, our people are what make us special. We have lots of opportunities for connection, whether it be a games night, teaching each other new skills over hangouts (pierogi making anyone?), connecting over coffee, or during one of our company All Hands.

Space to collaborate

Once it’s safe to do so, use our Vancouver collaboration space to find a quiet spot to work, socialize, or kick off a project with your team. Our space is dog-friendly, welcoming of children, and crafted for comfort.
