I'm Ronak. I'm a sustainable growth and marketing lover who's a fan of over-engineering things. I'm currently the Director of Marketing at Lano, working on some great projects with an incredible team. I'm also a MACH Alliance ambassador, co-creator of BuildYourDXP, and building a Developer Marketing community with Jakub Czakon.
I'm passionate about Sustainable Growth, Developer Marketing, API Marketing, DXPs, and Composable Experience Architectures (MACH).
You can connect with me on Twitter or LinkedIn. If you’re building a product or startup in the SaaS, API, or Developer Tooling category and would like to discuss marketing and growth, get in touch!

Rapid Fire

Here are 6 things facts about me.
  1. My favorite unmeasurable(-ish) metric is Time-to-Value. My favorite measurable metric is Lifetime Value (LTV).
  1. I love SEO and content. I equally dislike overusing spammy ads, unnecessary tracking, and shady email marketing practices.
  1. I hate buzzwords like gamechanger, growth "hacking", disruptive, and those rocket/muscle emojis.
  1. My favorite qualities in marketers are curiosity, data-inspiredness, empathy, involvement, and knowing when to admit defeat.
  1. 3 books that I often recommend to most people are Hit Refresh by Satya NadellaLab Rats by Dan Lyons, and Crossing the Chasm by Geoffrey Moore.
  1. I usually only travel for food, and I can't get sick of seafood. This is why I'll happily retire somewhere in Italy, Greece, or Portugal one day.
