Why Draft.dev?

Imagine putting your blog on autopilot.


Content Planning

The right content can increase your presence on search engines, help your content go viral on Hacker News, and build your newsletter subscriber base. We work with you to create a content plan based on your marketing goals and target audience.

Technical Writers

Unlike typical content marketing agencies, we go deep into technical topics. We accomplish this by partnering with professional software developers around the world who are experts on a wide variety of topics and technologies.

Consistent Quality and Voice

If you've worked with freelance writers before, you know the quality can vary. Our editors ensure that every piece of content is technically accurate, meets your standards, and uses a consistent voice.

You'll only pay for content if you're 100% satisfied.

About Draft.dev

My name is Karl Hughes and I'm the founder of Draft.dev.

After 8 years building software engineering teams at venture-funded tech startups, I decided to combine my skills in engineering with my passion for writing.

Now I work with writers around the world at Draft.dev to help growth-stage startups create high-quality technical content that reaches software engineers.

I believe that great marketing content can also be valuable educational content. If you believe the same thing, connect with me on Linkedin, Twitter, or Email.
