About Tara AI

We believe software should work for you. Yet, product development software has remained unchanged for the past 20 years; it’s difficult to use, requires heavy configuration and takes engineering time away from true, productive work.

At Tara, we’re designing simple yet powerful software to solve complex problems around product delivery. We've built a smart platform that's helping thousands of engineers and teams deliver on planned releases, with improved predictability.

We're a founding team of seasoned engineers and product folks, building for innovators. We're passionate about enabling engineers and builders that create the platforms the world uses, everyday. Our investors include YCombinator, Acrew and Slack Fund.

Why Us?

At Tara we’re building the fastest, simplest and effortless platform to define, track and automate the process of building software. Our mission is to help the growing number of 7000+ orgs and hundred of industries on Tara to git ship done!

We’re bringing a much needed layer of smarts, automation and workflow integration to empower users to solve complex engineering and product problems. These include issues like the lack of visibility into product progress, increasing engineering productivity and most of all moving away from using issue tickets as a measure of progress. At Tara we believe that the future is seamless workflows, ticketless.
