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.

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).

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.

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.

An Irishman from Tipperary living in Glasgow, Scotland, Sean is a full-stack Web Developer with 15 years experience building web applications with a no-nonsense, get it done attitude. With a 1st Class BSc Honours degree in Computing, Sean has worked for clients worldwide on projects of all types and sizes. Before turning his attention to computer programming, Sean was a very talented athlete, looking to become a Professional cyclist but never got to live his dream due to an injury. He still cycles an average of 250 miles per week to stay “fit.”
Hailing from Glasgow, Steven single-handedly transformed Zaengle into an international conglomerate (now with "offices" across the globe). Steven's been building websites since 1998, and primarily serves as Zaengle's front-end engineer, though he's quite capable across the full stack. He's worked with the UK Government (he might be 007), Disney, Paul McCartney, Under Armour, and a smattering of non-profits. He's a father of four, a ridiculously passionate Rangers fan, has never met Gerard Butler, and has the best accent in the world.
