Our Story

Back in 2014, we set out on a mission to create a visualization tool for Git that didn’t suck! And the Kraken was released for the first time in 2015 with the bold GitKraken Client, a tool that has since grown into a powerful set of Git productivity and team collaboration features. 

In 2020, GitKraken was acquired by Resurgens Technology Partners, which brought new opportunities to expand our team internationally with new resources and partners invested in our growth. 

The following year brought more excitement to GitKraken, with the company acquiring two more tools and welcoming them into a growing Git productivity suite in 2021. Git Integration for Jira helps teams drive Jira through Git, and GitLens for VS Code visualizes Git insights directly in the IDE.

GitKraken is on a mission to make Git easier, safer and more powerful across multiple surfaces and environments that development teams use. Stay tuned for what’s next as we continue to rapidly develop and release new features and products!
