GitPrime analyzes a team’s codebase to quantify software engineering progress.

GitPrime uses data from version control to help engineering teams understand their work patterns and improve the way they build software.


GitPrime analyzes a team’s codebase to quantify software engineering progress and help engineering managers lead their team effectively. Unlike traditional ticketing systems, that only track requested features based on self-reporting, GitPrime leverages the data from version control to provide timely and accurate answers based on facts not feelings.

For example, GitPrime helps managers identify engineers who are stuck or bogged down with refactoring, and quantify the amount of effort spent paying down technical debt.

For many companies, their engineering team is their largest expense and most important division, while the engineering work itself has lacked visibility into how thing are going. Unlike sales teams which have clear productivity metrics, engineering teams have no way to measure progress objectively which leads to subjective and arbitrary management.

GitPrime bridges the communication gap between engineering and the rest of the organization to help stakeholders finally understand how things are going based on concrete data.

Origin Story

Travis originally came up with the idea at a previous startup where he was in charge of scaling and managing the engineering team. Frustrated by the difficulties in communicating with non-technical engineering stakeholders, he started creating reports to objectively quantify engineering throughput and show how events elsewhere in the company can impact engineering progress. GitPrime was an evolution of these reports, with the goal of making this level of visibility easily available to all engineering teams.
