Garrett leads the day-to-day operations for our company and has a proven track record for leading high quality, large scale web projects for clients like the BBC, Edelman Digital and Zurich Insurance. He has extensive experience in the digital client services environment but is also a successful entrepreneur, having co-founded a social analytics platform that was acquired in 2010. He received his Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting from Abilene Christian University and lives in Dallas, Texas.
Director of Development
Chris is a sprightly chap with a hawk eye for the smallest of details, he keeps the team up-to-date with our development processes and workflows. Spending most of his time beavering away in semantic markup and super organized stylesheets - Chris likes to use every keyboard shortcut known to man. He’s a pro Craft CMS developer and will definitely buy a DeLorean some day. Chris lives in Nottingham, England - and the tree in his garden is a direct descendant of the Major Oak.
Director of Strategy
With over 10 years experience in integrated marketing and project management for everything from tiny nonprofits to global agencies, Ariel understands our client’s needs because she has been in their shoes. She’s a graduate of the Louder Than Ten Project Management Apprenticeship which basically makes her a black belt in project success. She handles the scheduling and planning of all of our projects, as well as client communication and keeping our team on track. Outside of work you can find her traveling to remote places and generally doing all things outdoorsy.
Steve is our in-house engineer. If you can dream it, he can build it – from complex web applications to native mobile applications for iOS and Android. He’s been a developer since Y2K, working on large scale projects for brands like Coca-Cola, KPMG, Unilever and Procter & Gamble. His thoroughness and attention to detail is second to none, and he gives Chris some real competition in the Apple Fanboy column. Unlike the rest of our dog loving team, Steve has cats! But he has other characteristics that we love.
Web Designer & Developer
Gavin joined Good Work in August 2016 after 10 years as a Leeds-based freelance web designer & front-end developer, and we couldn’t be happier. His Northern wit coupled with his eye for clean, intuitive design fits in just right here. When Gavin’s not making websites, you can find him out at gigs around Leeds, mountain biking and climbing. He takes working remotely pretty seriously and we never really know where he is.
Chase, formerly @chase on Twitter until his handle was stolen by JP Morgan, is a Dallas native with a tricky last name (it’s pronounced Jenta). Chase speaks human, is an ex-Apple employee, and most recently spent 6 years as an in-house developer at a local consumer software company. Long story short, he has a lot of green squares on his GitHub profile and the skills and attention to detail we love. We tied the knot in September 2017.
Jeff works out of our Dallas, Texas office and heads up our growing website support and maintenance program. After graduating from The Iron Yard Academy in September 2017, Jeff was our guinea pig Development Apprentice, a program we created to help quickly transition top web development graduates into the workforce. Jeff is a scratch golfer, so roughly 100 times better at golf than the rest of our team combined.
You might recognize Jake from conferences like DotAll Berlin: he’s generous with his knowledge and loves teaching about two of his biggest loves, Craft CMS and Vue.js. Yep, Jake’s kind of a big deal and we’re excited to welcome this front-end dynamo aboard. Jake’s passion for bleeding-edge technology is surpassed only by his passion for bleeding-edge sports – he promises to teach us to play Spikeball very soon. Like the rest of the gang, Jake loves to travel and suits our remote team to a tee.
