About Jared Roussel /ROO·sell/

Jared Roussel is an experienced web designer, web developer, systems administrator, and search strategist based in San Francisco.

I’ve had the pleasure of developing with open source web and server technologies for over a decade. As a result, I bring forth an array of quality service offerings and approaches that take a rich past into account.

My core perspective is that a product must first work beautifully in its simplest form in order for it to work seamlessly in a complex variety. For that reason, I collaborate very closely with others to get to the original idea and meaning behind a product.

I put a strong emphasis on communication, organization, and thorough planning while enforcing a unique, structured form of prototyping. This method ensures consistent delivery and that your idea will actually see the light of day.

I especially enjoy contributing to engaging and exciting projects that relate to social causes and expanding the accessibility of information. However, brilliant ideas come in many forms, so I encourage you to get in touch!
