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 Architecture (MACH), and maintain a curated catalog of Free Marketing Resources covering B2B and B2D.
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!

  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.
