GitPrime is bringing on a seasoned industry executive to help guide the company through the next stage of its growth. After two years of building out its productivity analytics product, GitPrime has hired Prosper cofounder John Witchel as its president. In this role, he’ll be responsible for partnerships and channel sales.
Started by Ben Thompson and Travis Kimmel, the Colorado-based startup offers a tool targeted at engineers and chief technology officers that helps show how events throughout an organization can impact development productivity. “Interrupting engineers when they’re on a roll is very expensive, and so is not stepping in to help an engineer when they are stuck,” explained Thompson. GitPrime leverages data from the codebase to produce reports that objectively quantify the engineering progress to offer other team members visibility into what’s being worked on.
