I talk a lot to dev tool marketers and founders. Often, they ask me for recommendations for developer marketing agencies, consultants, advisors, or freelancers.

That makes sense because most of the time they are no Twilio, Stripe, or Algolia with big awesome teams.

They are lean, early-stage startups. Sometimes with a one-person marketing department or a CEO/founder doing their best with 24 hours that they got (sorry 8 hours, work-life balance).

So figured I'd put together a list that I could just share with folks.

Here are the people who I know helped companies that are marketing to developers get stuff done.

I'll keep updating the list so if you'd like to add other agencies/consultants you worked with or share your thoughts on any company here -> let me know.

Ok, so in no particular order here we go!
