The latest version of Async: 1.7.0 launch


Async communication for software engineers

  • Integrated with GitHub, Async helps you track your progress on individual Issues and Pull Requests using Hills.
  • Async provides you with Discussions to have focused conversations around Issues and Pull Requests.
  • In addition to Hills and Discussions, Async provides you with Knowledge Docs to preserve important team knowledge and with Todos to organize upcoming tasks and report completed tasks. 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 Hills to seamlessly track per-issue and per-pull request progress. 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 have focused and deep conversations.
  • Since Discussions are short and transient, Async offers you Knowledge - a collaborative documents intended for storing and sharing important, persistent knowledge within your team.
  • In addition to Hills, Discussions and Knowledge, Async provides you with Todos - an easy way to plan and report tasks for you and your teammates.
  • 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.
