I am available for consulting engagements from time to time. I am best able to help companies with:

  • Product and go-to-market strategy
  • Early-stage founder/CEO coaching
  • Open source strategy If you’re interested in working together, please reach out.


I sometimes have time to help founders with their companies and products.

I am most useful on customer segmentation, high level product and market strategy, authenticity throughout your product and story, and founder team dynamics.

I am most interested in redistribution and decentralization (but not the blockchain), worker dignity, future of work, and power tools and automation.

You can see some of the companies I have worked with on AngelList.

If you’re interested, please reach out.


Luke Kanies Profile Picture I’m a tech founder and recovering SysAdmin. I helped found DevOps and grew up in open source. These days I am convalescing from a decade of physical and mental neglect while running Puppet.

I sometimes write about startups, founders, and other topics I like.

I am an angel investor, mostly in areas of expertise (infrastructure and dev tools) and interest (local first software and power tools).
