Zaengle is a web engineering firm that builds for the other side of the screen. We believe #BeNiceDoGood goes a long way. With kindness as our guide, we work with almost all of our clients a long time—in fact, over 90% of our clients have been with us for more than 3 years. We value the work we do, but we value the people we work with more.

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).

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.

Jesse is our resident woodworker. This hobby dovetails (see what we did there?) perfectly into his developer skillset. Both are focused on having a vision for the potential, knowing how things fit together, and what tools to use to create the most seamless product. His signature is to find the deeper meaning in a project and the right tool for the job. In his woodshop, that means hand planes, chisels, and mallets; here at Zaengle Corp, he transitions smoothly between Laravel, PHP, ExpressionEngine, Statamic, and Craft. Whether it ends up on your screen or in your hand, Jesse is brilliant at working a concept into a product that is both beautiful and functional.

Amanda is a fixer; she can optimize, streamline and organize just about anything. She spent ten years in the non-profit sector while coaching Philip in all things related to growing a business. These days she spends her time looking for ways to better serve Zaengle's clients, all while improving team culture. As a part-time hobby, she negotiates deals between her Chocolate Lab, Ruby, and three-year-old son, Henry.

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.

Patrick is our newest Project Administrator currently residing in Northwest Florida (home of the venerable Florida State Seminoles). He has Ron Swanson hair, otherwise there's minimal resemblance...more on him soon.
Sean is our newest engineer hailing from Ireland via Scotland...we'll have more to say about him soon. Contrary to popular belief, he looks nothing like Kramer.

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.
