Web Development Team:
Jose is an honors graduate with a Bachelor of Science (B.S) degree in Computer Information Systems. Upon graduating, he earned the Best Senior Project award. With over 10 years of experience, his current focus has been on Web Design and Development utilizing Open source technologies. One of his recent projects included engineering a CRM tracking platform which met unique business requirements that could not be satisfied with over the counter CRM solutions. This platform tracked customer data linking SEO initiatives, PPC campaigns, and Email marketing using data visualization to make business decisions. Jose has been known to draw custom Snapchat filters, use data science to increase conversions and create responsive email templates resulting in being labeled a jack of all trades, but he prefers the term renaissance man.
