Who We Are
Real People, Open Approach
We believe that good problem solving starts with being open. Open with each other, open with you, using open source technology. For us, success is welcoming all voices to the table and making the technical approachable. By working together, we accomplish incredible things.
Drupal experts, programmers, developers, strategists, planners, creators and doers — we’re all here. We share what we know at all stages, and we always say it straight. All in the name of achieving results for you.
Tess is TEN7’s Swiss Army knife. She’s an ever-present force in Drupal and a frequent speaker at events, where she's known for comic book-style illustrations in her presentations. Her superpower is problem-solving—she’s always finding ways to improve a site’s infrastructure and efficiency, and she has the rare ability to look holistically at a situation through human requirements, not just those of technology and business. She also loves sleuthing out the source of hacks, especially the ugly and ingenious ones. Tess has encyclopedic knowledge of horror/sci-fi ranging from schlocky and campy to highbrow. She loves Star Trek, where the engineers use their skills to help people.
TEN7's podcast producer and media manager, Jonathan cares deeply about TEN7's message to the world. He works tirelessly behind the scenes at TEN7 with a myriad of responsibilities, including podcast production, social media assets, video production, and the website management for these efforts. He is an engaged activist, a devoted father and is as likely to go off on a political rant as to tell you a dad joke.
Jason loves finding innovative solutions to the complicated front-end programming issues we throw at him. He’s that laid-back dude who listens quietly but then spits out a zinger when you’re not expecting it. Jason loves tacos, coffee, biking, camping, and thinks eating weird chip flavors is one of the best things about foreign travel (mustard and pickle potato chips FTW!).
Words that describe Ivan: Relentlessly optimistic. Kind. Equally concerned with client and employee happiness. Bowtie lover. Physicist. Ethical. Lighthearted and cheerful. Finds joy in the technical stuff. Inspiring. Loyal. Hires smart, curious and kind employees who want to create more good in the world. His favorite things right now: the TEN7 podcast and becoming the next Björn Borg.
Derek has been a prolific contributor to Drupal since 2006. He has contributed countless bug fixes and added new features to the core system and many other projects, and helps maintain the collaboration tools for the community on Drupal.org. Derek loves finding elegant solutions to complex problems. A musician and a community activist, he seeks understanding, compassion and social change. All power to the people!
Dani has enjoyed making other people's lives easier and happier for decades. And that's why being our Director of Operations suits her perfectly. Her unique background in the realms of publishing (as a writer/editor) and creative agencies (as a multi-media producer) help her keep an eye on clients' greater vision while also being able to coordinate details and keep "the trains running on time." When she's not reviewing budgets and timelines, she's probably either meditating or at the movies. Or both.
Chris came to TEN7 from the world of nonprofits where he was a jack-of-all-trades, self-taught tech guy, and he’s excited to be our newest team member and front end developer (and we’re sure he’s got hidden capabilities we haven’t even discovered yet). He’s a curious, even-keeled fellow who loves to challenge himself with new technologies. Chris is passionate about good design, believing that it enables users to do the right thing. He loves ensuring that our clients feel cared for, and he’s endlessly patient at explaining the intricacies of Drupal to non-technical folks. Chris has a background in the fields of ethnography, linguistics and anthropology, which he balances out with barbershop singing.
Lex is a full-stack developer and TEN7's dispenser of unvarnished truth (when asked). Lex does strategic back-end work, anticipating our clients’ needs and giving them more than they’ve asked for. His combination of dry humor and calm demeanor makes him popular with clients and coworkers alike. Lex’s side gigs include DJing, producing music and mixing some mad beats, including our podcast music.
