Insights and tools for high-performing engineering teams

It’s hard to improve what you don’t measure. Use key engineering metrics to unblock the flow, align engineering with business objectives, and drive continuous improvement.

Unblock the Flow

Identify and remove blockers

Insight starts with transparency. Gain visibility into your engineering pipeline with insights into flow and velocity, CI/CD practices, code quality, and more.

Frequently asked questions
How does it work?

Swarmia connects with GitHub, Jira and other systems to provide engineering organizations with a holistic picture of how they work and where they can improve.

Based on this data and our research on industry’s best-performing teams, engineering teams identify anti-patterns and blockers, and agree on improvement areas.

Swarmia integrates with team routines and sends automated notifications based on team goals to build feedback loops and drive long-term productivity improvements in the following areas:

  • Focus. Limiting work in progress, visualizing unplanned work and aligning work with top business objectives.
  • Delivery. Shipping in small batches, improving review and cycle time, measuring scope creep.
  • Quality. Improving code review practices, addressing bugs and technical debt, handling automated test flakiness.
  • Collaboration. Breaking knowledge silos, unblocking cross-team work.
Who is Swarmia for?

Swarmia is used by Engineering Leaders, Product Leaders and Engineering Managers, while providing context and saving time for individual developers.

  • Engineering Leaders get high-level visibility across the organization.
  • Product Leaders look beyond Jira reports to diagnose flow issues, follow progress on strategic initiatives, and make sure the teams are focused on work that matters.
  • Engineers use actionable alerts to get pull requests through 70% faster, improve code quality and review process. They also use Swarmia in team retrospectives.

We've seen tools that focus on measuring individual productivity, but that doesn't result in long-term productivity improvement, and creates distrust between leadership and engineering teams. We create a shared language for the entire organization, providing engineering teams with data to improve their own work. In Swarmia everyone gets to see the same insights - CTOs have the same access as engineering interns.

We don’t have a team size requirement. Our customers’ engineering organizations range from less than a dozen to several hundreds of developers.

How long does the setup take?

The initial setup should only take about 15 minutes. You’ll get the first insights immediately. Teams can be onboarded later at any time, it takes a couple of minutes per team to put things in place.

How long does it take to get results?

Many common team blockers can be identified and removed within two weeks. We’ve seen teams achieving a sharp productivity increase in 4–6 weeks. Long-lasting improvement requires commitment from both leadership and teams.

Do you offer a free trial?

We offer a free 14-day trial. Your trial starts when you've successfully connected GitHub to Swarmia. You can get started here.

If you're a startup with less than 14 developers, you can use Swarmia for free.

How do you handle data?

Keeping your data secure is our top priority. We don’t store source code files and use only metadata about your organization, repositories and issue tracker data to run analysis on our side. We’re open to a security review to make Swarmia work for your organization.

Additionally, we run internal and external security audits twice a year.
