The best product opportunities are found in the intersection of the capabilities of the tech and the team. It's easier to teach the right engineers about people than it is to teach managers about tech.
When the team's productive don't make them change tools or practices to meet your needs as a manager, go where the work is happening and find out for yourself.
It's hard work staying technical and keeping up with managerial duties. Hecate aims to automate as much of the small stuff out of the way so you can focus on the big stuff.
At Hecate we offer a collection of products that help technical leaders do their jobs better and easier.
We keep the products separate for two reasons. The first is so you can mix and match what best suits your and your team's needs. Every team is different and one size does not fit all. The second is so we get the bare minimum data out of GitHub to meet your needs. Each product authenticates with GitHub separately giving you fine grained control of what data you share externally.
Are you drowning in GitHub emails and slack notifications just so you can know what's going on inside the dev team? Use Dispatch to get smart, configurable summaries of pull request activity so you can stay up to date. Configure rulesets to route the right deployment notifications to the right teams.
Software development has been surprisingly resistant to "management by numbers". Lines of code mean very little, and we've all seen garbage code pass linting. Heartbeat lets you subjectively score pull requests to track movement over time, and uses sampling techniques to reduce your own cognitive biases.
Have you hit your annual financial audit or trying to nab a big enterprise client and having trouble demonstrating adequate change control process? Audit supplements the regular GitHub flow with follow-up reviews and generates documentation to help clear those compliance hurdles.
Hecate is named after the Greek goddess of crossroads and witchcraft. There are a couple of popular pronunciations but we've gone with heh‐KAH‐tee as it runs pretty close to the original. Honestly though, as long as you're talking about us, say it how you like.
