Hi! My name is Jess and I started at Octopus Deploy in February 2016. I was super excited to join the Octopus team, not only because they are remote-first and family-focused (no more 4 hour daily commutes yay!) but to work for a tech company producing an amazing product that really makes their users work easier. Over the last 6 months, the team have impressed me with what they have produced, their open communication, team work and trust in each other. I feel lucky to be a part of a talented and inspiring team.

So where do I fit into the Octopus team? Good question! I am the designer. And I say “designer” broadly because it encompasses so many aspects including graphic, web design and development, UX, UI, marketing and copywriting. I started in the industry, after studying Design and Marketing, as a graphic and web designer with a strong focus on branding and moved into a brand manager role which had a focus on UX and UI principles. I love working on different aspects of design so Octopus is a great fit.

If I am not designing and building a website for a small local business on the side, I am trying to make myself only look at only one more scroll of Pinterest images. I also love to slow-cook meat, sew clothes, take a yoga class, instruct pilates classes and spend time with friends and family.
