Our founders, Stephane and Arnaud have been working in software development for more than a decade. They are developers by trade, have been working with countless developers and tech leads in different settings and have managed significant developments throughout the years.
It became apparent to them that as development gets ever more critical and important in our world, the daily pains felt by tech leads and developers just keep increasing.
Projects are more complex than ever. New micro-service architectures mean more people collaborate on projects, using more development tools, at a faster pace than ever before.
All of that creates overheads on developers. Collaboration means follow-ups and depending on peers to progress. More stakeholders mean more reporting. A faster pace means more process and more methodologies that are not always adapted to developers, let alone meant to help them.
We told you, we know the pain!
Knowing profoundly the pain is one thing. Doing something about it is another. That's why Arnaud and Stephane created Keypup.
Keypup is not yet another development tool. It isn't either a bettered version of Jira, Trello or any tool designed more for project managers and reporting than it is to people who actually do the job.
Keypup is for developers and tech leads. Yes, it may look like yet another tracking tool, or another platform on top of the existing lot developers use.
But it's not.
It is a real helper that allows developers to access their data faster. To see exactly where they are at, where their peers are at, and most importantly where they need to go, when and why.
Our aim is to de-clutter the activities surrounding developments. We are here to help developers stop wasting time with reporting, following-up, looking for hours into complicated repositories to find the right data or the right action to perform.
We help save time and provide clarity like never before.
