Philip’s greatest childhood loves were LEGO and earning money (by selling soda at baseball games) - two foundational traits of entrepreneurs everywhere. These early interests built Phil’s innate skill for translating business logic to developers and engineering logic to decision-makers. He loves to take a complex business problem and solve it with great code and design that builds solid value. Phil realized early on that he only loved making his clients successful if he was nice and did good work. That’s how Zaengle Corp’s mandate, “Be nice, do good" was born. It’s the heart of what has helped him create success for 70+ clients since 2009.

With a strong background in the sciences, Owen brings a diverse skillset to the Zaengle team. With skills ranging from systems thinking, research methods, and statistical analysis to algae identification, and writing clean, well-tested code, he is the guy you turn to and ask “What’s a 4-letter word for ‘jelly-like algae substance’ ? ”… and if you listen real closely you might hear him say “agar”. Owen has an M.S. in Lake Management and a B.S. in Environmental Science. When he’s not working you can find him chilling with his brilliant wife and their three dogs, fishing, doing crossword puzzles, or maybe even restoring a settlement-era barn.

As a wee lad (more like a teenager), Jason made trips to Ukraine, Bolivia, and Haiti — from that point on his passion for helping "the good do good better" only grew. Jason studied International Economics and did what every self-respecting economist would do — went into tech. For the past decade, Jason has designed products for Google and Cisco, helped build CodeSchool.com, written two books, and led a prominent software firm. Now, he's focused on building the Zaengleverse. He also lives at the beach (feel sorry for him right?), raises 3 humans (with his wife's help), reps UNC Basketball & FSU Football (yeah, both are in the ACC), and was once a pretty decent swimmer (especially during Shark Week).

Managing software development projects requires attention to detail, a good memory, and a bit of business savvy. Patrick brings all three traits to Zaengle as our Project Administrator. He spent eight years working for a PR and marketing agency, the last half of which was devoted to developing their fledgling website department. During that time Patrick came to believe that the key to running successful projects is building relationships with clients, coworkers, and vendors. At Zaengle, he embodies our Be Nice, Do Good philosophy with a blend of buttoned-up professional and southern hospitality.
