Having spent more than 13 years within the digital agency environment, latterly heading up the PPC department, Jason brings a wealth of experience to Screaming Frog.
Starting out as a website programmer, and progressing through account management roles before the arrival of paid search gave Jason the perfect background to get to grips with the technology involved with tracking and analysing complex PPC campaigns.
Having worked closely with clients such as Coca-Cola Africa, WHSmith and Ebookers means he’s acutely aware what a business wants and needs from an agency and ensures that Screaming Frog delivers on all accounts.

Chris graduated university in computer science but didn’t find his vocation in life until stumbling across Screaming Frog and the world of SEO – he is forever indebted to us!

Mark is a self-confessed geek who has always had a love/hate relationship with blogging, coupled with an addiction to buying domain names. Together they
are quite a potent mix, and he quickly longed to know the mysterious inner workings of search engines and what factors determined a website’s ranking.
Unfortunately, blogging took a back seat when Mark went to University to study BSc Computer Game Technology (yes, it’s a real degree), but his passion was reignited after he graduated. Working as a 3D Modeller by day and blogging by night, he quickly realised which he preferred doing.
Outside of SEO, Mark loves Manchester United, gadgets and games. If anyone can beat him at FIFA he will happily buy them a drink.

Although Jess graduated with a degree in English Literature, she is still unable to write a decent ‘about me’ section.
After accidentally falling into the health and safety industry, (despite being neither healthy nor safe), Jess (luckily) came across the Screaming Frog team and SEO, and can now run freely with scissors, while putting to use her love of reading, writing, and research.
Happiest when scribbling out content, Jess loves the mixture-of-head-in-the-clouds thinking and down-to-earth decision making that SEO brings.
Outside of the office Jess can be found buried in a book or buried in mud and/or hay, in an attempt to ride/tame her horses.

When not enjoying the relaxing sound of clicking keys, Stephen enjoys supporting his beloved rugby team (Cymru am byth!), discovering anything new, and #moonwatching.
