About Us

HADFIELD JONES  is a new consultancy built on experience and excellence in reaching developers. As software becomes increasingly essential to our world, so do software and app developers. Thus, developers become essential, in turn, to nearly every company’s success.

That’s where we come in. Bruce Jones & Jeff Hadfield, co-founders, see the demand for developers increasing — but developer program and developer marketing remain relatively new disciplines. HADFIELD JONES was founded to help people in companies of all sizes build developer programs and conduct developer outreach in intelligent, sustainable and effective ways.

We help companies understand, build, run, promote and measure developer relations programs. Contact us today for more information about how we can help you — and more about our forthcoming book, Developer Program Excellence. Here’s more information about companies we’ve worked with over our careers, too.
