Shower drain question

I am planning for a shower with Kerdi drain and Kerdi membrane. However the center of the proposed shower area is right on top of a floor joist. So my questions are:

1. Is there a Kerdi drain with an angle such that I can avoid the joist?

2. If I move the drain a few inches (not in center anymore), how do the properly create the slope of my mud pan? Should I use something like quick pitch ?

Hi Andy, you will have to put the drain off center some. Just keep the perimeter of the mud base level and slope everything to the drain
