Welcome to Kiro!
Start here to get an overview of Kiro.
Greetings, and welcome to Kiro! 👋
We’re glad you could make it, and we hope these docs will help you on your journey as an engineer. We’re excited to be along for the ride 😀

What is Kiro?

Kiro is a platform that helps software engineers continuously improve the health of their development environments - both quantitatively and qualitatively. It easily integrates with your existing development tools and provides a coach-like experience for you as an engineer.

What does Kiro do?

Our first product offering is the Kiro PR Coach, which has the following features:
  • Integrate with GitHub and the PR Coach prioritizes and recommends a single PR to focus on right now, so you can start taking action.
  • It'll tell you the reasons why a certain PR is recommended, so that you can keep track of what needs to be addressed - whether a review comment from a teammate, or a time-sensitive piece of that code that needs to be fixed.
  • Keep tabs on your personal engineer health with three Kiro Health Checks: Number of Open Pull Requests, Average Pull Request Lifetime and Average Time in Review.

What do I use Kiro for?

Our aim with the Kiro PR Coach is to help you:
  • Reduce your GitHub work-in-progress (WIP) and keep it to a manageable level.
  • Improve your code review process with you and your teammates.
  • Help you complete your PRs and ship faster to your customers.
  • Cut down on stale PRs, or PRs waiting in limbo.
  • Unblock and make progress together with your team.

Who is Kiro for?

Kiro is for individual engineers who are using GitHub (we have more integrations coming soon), and:
  • Have an existing queue of PRs to complete.
  • Want to get through your PR queue and better manage your overall PR work-in-progress.
  • Want to cut down on the amount of stale PRs and have a cleaner PR workflow.
  • Looking to improve your team collaboration and communication with completing PRs.

How do I start using the Kiro PR Coach?
