The latest version of Async: 1.8.0 launch


Communication for small, remote software teams who take it slow

  • Integrated with GitHub, Async helps you track your progress on individual Issues and Pull Requests.
  • Async provides you with Discussions to have focused conversations around Issues and Pull Requests.
  • In addition to Issues and Discussions, Async provides you with Notes to preserve important team knowledge. See Features.



Built by software engineers for software engineers.

  • We built Async because we badly needed a better tool to communicate as a small team while building software. We've built over a dozen software projects using Async, and we manage two popular public repos with Async.
  • Async provides you with Issues to seamlessly track per-issue and per-pull request progress. Issues in Async are an alternative to waterfall and agile principles.
  • Unlike Slack and other chat applications, Async encourages long-form, thread-based, asynchronous Discussions that enable your engineering team to have focused and deep conversations.
  • Since Discussions are short and transient, Async offers you Notes - collaborative documents intended for storing and sharing important, persistent knowledge within your team.
  • You own your data. It's safe with us.

  • GitHub is the single source of truth for data.
  • Async has no access to your actual code on GitHub.
  • We respect your privacy and will never sell your personal information to third parties.
  • We won't share your data with law enforcement unless a court order requires us to.
  • All data transmitted from our servers to your browser is encrypted via SSL/TLS. Database backups and AWS S3 buckets are also encrypted.
  • You own your data. You can export all of your data in JSON format and delete your account at any time.
  • When you delete your account, all of your data will be permanently deleted from our databases within a few seconds.
  • Any data that you delete permanently while using Async is permanently deleted from our database.

  • Async is built by a small, remote, and self-funded team.

  • We are not funded by any investors. Async is fully owned by us.
  • We promise to last. Read more in our article.
  • Our team has built and actively maintains these open source projects: Builder Book and SaaS Boilerplate.
