About Stepsize

Our mission is to make software development universally accessible.

Software fuels progress, but creating and maintaining it is hard. It’s painful to think about all the ideas that never saw the light of day because of this, and how different the world could be if they had.

We want to live in a world where anyone can create software on their own, without technical knowledge.

This is a multi-decade plan. We’re aware of it, but we don’t shy away from it.


We can’t make software development universally accessible today, but we can accelerate it. So the journey begins with software development teams.

Today we help teams access and use knowledge to create better software faster

Agile engineering teams face a really tough challenge: their codebases change constantly which means it’s impossible to have accurate and up-to-date internal documentation. This is particularly problematic for teams growing rapidly or those with high turnover.

Our product solves this problem by creating self-maintaining documentation, automatically tying together data from all the tools these teams use every day. We start with the assumption that codebases are evolving constantly and generate documentation that is tailored to capture change, like a version control system. The traditional approach is to capture the state of things at a single point in time, ideally the present – this cannot work in a world of continuous delivery.

With Stepsize knowledge doesn’t get lost, time isn’t wasted digging it up, and teams are happier and more performant.

Tomorrow we’ll help teams turn knowledge into superpowers to create better software faster

Embedded in this data are insights about how to work smarter. Certain mundane activities can be automated while others can be done better with assistance. Tomorrow's teams will get superhuman amount of 💩 done.


This paves the way to our long term vision of universal software development.

The data software development teams generate in their day-to-day represents how human concepts become functioning software. By assisting teams in that process, we'll gradually deepen our understanding of how the sausage gets made. Eventually, Stepsize will become a software factory.
