About Koan

Getting an entire company to rally around a set of goals with a unified purpose is really hard to do. So much so, we became obsessed with solving the problem. Koan is a new platform that helps fast-moving companies get focused on what matters to help their teams perform at their best, and keep them all pulling in the same direction to achieve their goals.

With Koan, teams stop using spreadsheets, weekly status meetings and the ongoing mundane tasks—we’ve all had to do—to try and stay aligned to achieve our goals. We’ve built a platform teams love to use, and we’re helping companies like Vacasa, AskNicely and others transform the way their teams work together.

We’re based in beautiful Portland, Oregon and we’re powered on ridiculously good coffee. Even better, we’ve just hit the gas on our growth efforts and we’re looking for great leaders to help us on our mission.
