Four years later, we are the #1 online outsourcing service for WordPress.
Founder, CTO, Product manager, Server admin
I spent years as a freelancer, building websites and applications for clients all over the world. I’m a self-taught developer who likes to fiddle with servers. A lot.
At Codeable, I’m responsible for product development and promotion. You are likely to meet me at a WP conference or UX workshop, where I’m working on in-depth understanding of Codeable users habits.
My dearest and a bucket of four hyperactive children (yup, that is one more than Per) fill in most of my spare time. When I am in need of some adrenaline rush, I go and bravely jump out of an airplane. I love a great movie in the evenings. Oh, and here’s news: I don’t like coffee.
I’ve been in the web agency business since ever. First with in-house developers and after with external freelancers. Actually, that is how I met Tomaž.
At Codeable, I’m responsible for everything business related, handpicking and motivating contractors and taking good care of our clients. Being in the admin overviewing everything has become my definition of fun.
What’s left of time, I spend it with my lovely wife and three gorgeous daughters. Dinners with family and friends are priceless. Also, golf and fly fishing are keeping my stress levels low.
Diehard pragmatic. Strong believer in “work smart, not hard” approach. I love working with people from all around the world in creating new possibilities.
Very passionate about building great applications that are easy to change and scalable, but not over-engineered.
I love solving hard problems, always focusing on the big-picture and producing top-class results.
I have a great kid who is beating me 200:0 regularly in BlackOps III gun game.
In the afternoons I am trying to improve at the Art of Eight Limbs and trying to make some “gains” in the gym.
I remember the first time I hit the “Publish” button: that was the time my life changed forever. I started digging what once-was-called blogosphere and the WordPress ecosystem and never stopped working with “words” ever since.
I’ve been Editor-in-Chief for a network of blogs, a tech journalist. I’ve been a freelance consultant too. All these jobs featured one precious leitmotif: getting to know WordPress and its powering of awesome things online. Today I’m the Content guy here at Codeable. Most of my time is focused on researching, crafting and improving our editorial efforts in different ways, be it a new blog post, social media updates, case studies, or copy for landing pages and newsletter.
When I’m offline, I love playing sports with rackets (who’s up for a tennis/squash match?), sipping coffee from my Technorati mug, and of course, enjoy life free of notifications popping up every second.
I like to call myself a software craftsman. Discovered HTML at the age of 11 and fell in love with it straight away. Being good at math and programming got me a college scholarship for talented students. I graduated from University of Maribor with a Bachelor of Computer Science in Artificial Intelligence. Most of my experience is in web applications, bytecode manipulation, mobile, enterprise document/content management.
At Codeable I take care of back-end development. In simple words: I make sure our API and application run smoothly, so anyone using our service can get their job done without any technical interruption.
Whenever I am not programming I enjoy a bit more programming, making slick moves in the kitchen, drinking Japanese tea, playing my guitars and accordion, reading books and playing games.
Customer Service Happiness Hero
I’ve discovered programming when I was 16, and I’ve never lost the passion for computers and technology since then. Ages ago in my ‘offline’ jobs I’ve worked among others as a product manager, and I’ve also spoken at an endless number of conferences representing my former company.
When I decided that I had enough of a ‘normal’ job I left my work and in 2008 I moved to Thailand with my family with the goal of making a living working from my computer. Tenacity and perseverance rewarded my efforts, and taught me the most important of the lessons: never give up on your dreams.
Codeable is a dream come true of working in a revolutionary startup in a fantastic and innovative environment.
I have been developing software for a few years on both sides of the Atlantic. I’ll be working to keep the Codeable platform ‘lean and clean’ to help take Codeable to more of the people and, have a blast doing it!
My journey started in Scotland and has taken me to Europe and the US. I’ve been accompanied by my family who allow me to watch and sometimes even play ‘the beautiful game’. Love eating and drinking, and being where the sun shines.
I joined Codeable after being one of the top experts on the site. My job at Codeable is very varied, most of my time is spent dealing with client support requests, which can range from supporting contractors who may have gotten out of their depth, to dealing directly with the client on the end of the phone or Intercom (bottom right of the page). I also review potential new contractors to make sure they are up to Codeable’s high standards.
When I am not doing all of that I am probably out walking my 5 dogs, (Grizzley, Zar, Birdie, Penny and Peanut)
Chief Happiness Officer
I started out with a love for computers at around 5 years old and remember using 5 1/4” floppies to play games and paint pictures. Fast forward and I built my first computer at age 12 and got my first Apple PowerMac G4 tower in 1999. About 7 years ago I started into the world of WordPress and have since made dozens of sites for myself and clients.
Now I get to do what I love every day, which is helping people in support as the Chief Happiness Officer! I have a wonderful wife, 2 amazing kids, and am living the life I imagined over 20 years ago. When I’m not helping clients and experts on Codeable, or playing with my family, you can find me wakeskating and wakeboarding. And unlike Tomaz, I drink entirely too much coffee daily lol. ;)
Codeable has humbled me twice in my life. First, when I received a note from Per that I had been accepted as an expert into the platform and for the second time when I was asked to come over to the in-house team in support. I’m a trained designer, proven developer, and a friendly guy with a natural ability to provide very high quality client service. I love wearing the many hats the startup environment provides to help grow Codeable and help more people.
I’m from the great Pacific Northwest near Seattle so when I’m not online you’ll find me in the mountains chasing snow storms or cycling around the Puget Sound.
Before I joined Codeable I was working in Slovenia as a Chinese teacher. It’s a great experience and I met lots of nice people and made some great friends.
I like to communicate, exchange different ideas and get to know different cultures. By chance, I joined Codeable last year, and I love working here. My coworkers are all very friendly and patient and our experts are just amazing. I feel like I’m in good hands just like our clients :-) I enjoy doing customer support, helping Codeable clients and experts from all over the world.
When I’m not with Codeable, I like to do some gardening, watch comedies and sci-fi movies, do some creative cooking and play games with friends.
Hi there! My name is Jordy and I’m a laid back soul from Portland, Oregon. I believe that empathy and positivity make the world go round, and I love putting that into practice at Codeable. My passion for the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer service model led me to Codeable and I instantly knew that this is where I’m supposed to be. I spend my time here making sure clients and experts have everything they need to make projects a smashing success.
When I’m not at work delighting customers, you can find me standing on a board at the beach, the mountain, or the river. My family and I are always together enjoying each other’s company in the outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.
