Jake McKenna, Technical Consultant

Jake started at Ghyston in 2014 as a developer and has had a variety of roles including support engineer, technical sales consultant, and now project manager. He loves working closely with customers to understand their businesses and figure out how we can use technology to help them achieve their goals.

It’s always great when we’re able to talk to a customer, understand their problem, and then make a quick change to our code that saves them hours of work each day. Being able to use technology to solve real problems for people is what I love about my job.
