Cloud Native story-telling

I help companies build an audience through relationships with developers.

At OpenFaaS Ltd, we're story-tellers

Engage your audience

In a world where we are flying less we need new ways to reach developers and buyers. You need the kind of posts that hit the front page of Hacker News. You need to tell your story.

We build integrated packages of sample apps, demos, and top notch copywriting to help you build and maintain an audience, and convert interest into sales.

Community is your fly-wheel

With a track-record of building organic developer communities, we'll help your team develop the strategy and tactics to gain even more traction.

  • We helped Civo design & launch the world's first managed K3s service.
  • We helped Equinix Metal tell the world about their Tinkerbell project, which is now part of the CNCF.
  • We drove leads to Sysdig through a series of educational webinars on Kubernetes.

Your Partner for Cloud Native

We'll partner with your experts on your Cloud Native journey. We'll ask you considerate questions, give an external perspective on the problem and reassure your team with our experience, network, and problem-solving skills.

As a CNCF Ambassador, speaker, author and respected open source maintainer, our founder brings a wealth of experience, and key industry connections.

Whether you're just starting out, or just in need of a fresh perspective, we would love to hear from you.
