Echoes HQ - Engineering analytics through the lens of business value | Product Hunt

Measure what matters, make better decisions

Echoes gives you visibility into allocation of efforts, level of focus, and impact of your teams, on outcomes that you define.

Go beyond measuring people being busy: get confidence that progress is being made in the right direction.

Be the best possible leader for your team

  • Maximize your team's impact by creating the best conditions for success.
  • Build engagement through purpose by putting your team's work into context.
  • Be your team's best advocate with activity reports your bosses and business partners can understand.

Foster an engineer-friendly culture

Echoes integrates in the engineers regular workflow, eliminating guesswork and busywork, and overcoming the diversity of processes and tools inevitable at scale.

Give stakeholders the visibility they need with the right level of details. Evaluate the system, not the people.

What makes Echoes special

Our mission is developer empowerment

We started Echoes with a mission of empowering developers everywhere. This mission is what drives our passion for organizations and leadership, and what got us to work in the past on products developers love such as Docker.

Echoes shines a light on the engineers work, surfaces the reality of their day-to-day, and helps management create a context where they can deliver their best work. The reports are centered on teams rather than individuals, and on outcomes over outputs. It shifts focus away from local efficiency (individual developer productivity) to the bigger goal: the organization's collective ability to succeed.

Measure the reality of work

Many solutions capture work where it's described, for example in a ticketing system, rather than where it happens. The result is both partial (not all work is tracked in these systems) and biased (tickets tend to capture the plan rather than the work actually being done).

By measuring work where it happens, Echoes provides feedback from the field and allows you to compare plans to reality. Getting a realtime view of your team's current direction is crucial to make decisions and to communicate effectively.

Overcome the diversity of processes and tools

As organizations grow, as teams specialize, and as acquisitions happen, you cannot expect all teams to operate the same way anymore. How to preserve visibility across the organization when one team uses JIRA and another uses Linear?

Echoes provides consolidated visibility of the activity regardless of local operational differences. Its central definition of outcomes and initiatives provides the universal language needed to express intent. By capturing work where it happens (i.e., GitHub, GitLab), it gives you exhaustive and accurate visibility regardless of processes in place.

Share what's necessary, no more, no less

We take security at heart and strive to collect no more data than strictly needed. In particular, Echoes does not require access to your codebase.

When used with GitHub, Echoes is restricted to metadata (e.g., title and bodies of pull requests, labels, commit messages). It cannot clone repositories, examine filenames, nor look at the changes within a particular commit.
