Jody Hamilton

Jody is a full stack Drupal expert. She does technical architecture, strategy, development, consulting, and developer training. Jody has worked on hundreds of Drupal projects since she began as a freelancer in 2006 and co-founded Zivtech in 2008. Jody grew up in the Philadelphia area and graduated from Harvey Mudd College in California in 2000. She worked as a high school math teacher for a year, as both math and teaching are strengths of hers. She also worked in a lab coat for a number of years as an analytical chemist in the pharmaceutical industry where she ensured quality throughout new drug synthesis projects and got in trouble for being on the internet too much. Jody live in East Falls (Philadelphia) with a slightly excessive number of pets.
 

I'm a creative and thoughtful person, with a strong analytical mind. Problem solving is my preferred creative outlet and I enjoy finding and fixing problems on all layers of the stack. I am never defeated by a bug. I also like designing simple and intuitive user interfaces. Before I discovered software engineering I had other creative pursuits including song-writing. Many of my teammates here are also musicians, as it requires similar strengths to our work. My values guide me and reflect in my business: integrity, honesty, simplicity, focus, fairness, attention to detail.

I'm proud of the work I've done with my team at Zivtech. We have never had a failed project and we have saved many projects who came to us for a rescue. Over the years we've grown from being Drupal development experts to a full service web agency. We are constantly improving our processes to give the best service to our clients, learning from every project. We've been good open source citizens, giving back to the community as we work.

I am passionate about the quality of our work and I maintain high standards for my team. I am deeply committed to the projects I lead, typically coming up with solutions for them at all hours. I care about my employees and I'm proud to be able to help them have a fulfilling career and a good life. I love the freedom and information access the web provides, and that open source software brings. Where else in this world can you share something with everyone for nothing?
