Team communication for deep work

  • Tightly integrated with GitHub, Async encourages your software team to have focused discussions around GitHub issues.
  • Async provides you with a simple framework to delegate responsibility within your team and track individual and overall progress. See Features.

Built by software engineers for software engineers.

  • We built Async because we badly needed a better tool to communicate as a team while building software. We've built over a dozen software projects using Async.
  • Async provides you with Repo Hills to seamlessly track per-issue and per-repo progress. Repo Hills 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 achieve deep and focused work.
  • Besides focused Discussions and Repo Hills, Async provides you with Standups - an easy way to plan and report daily tasks for you and your teammates.
  • Finally, since Discussions are short and transient, Async offers you Knowledge - a collaborative document intended for storing and sharing important, persistent information 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.

  • Our team has built Builder Book, SaaS boilerplate, and Async.
