About Jay Johnson

Jay’s my name, frontend development is my game.

I am a senior software engineer with a focus on front-end and WordPress development. I believe in writing well-documented code that is both efficient and easy to understand. I have spent the last 3½ years as a remote developer building high-profile websites and applications with budgets up to $4 million.

My original background is in graphic and web design, but somewhere along the line I found myself getting more enjoyment out of implementing designs than creating them. Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a wide variety of projects ranging from simple CMS driven brochure websites to full-featured API driven applications. Along the way, I’ve become an expert communicator and experienced project lead with a proven track record of success. I am also an experienced project estimator and scope writer.
