Starting with Product & Engineering teams

KATA is designed to get your projects and people working in perfect harmony by eliminating the broken information flows that prevent teams from doing their best work.


At Shopify, we obsessed about staying fast as we grew. So much so that we built our own internal tool to create a social protocol for work. Everyone, from the intern to the CEO, used the same tool to see who’s working on what and why. It made us 10x better. KATA is the new, improved version of that tool. Now available for everyone, and more deeply connected to the tools teams work in.
