About Me And What I Do Well

My name is Bill Jackson and I've been successfully developing applications, designing websites & interfaces, and managing complex technology projects for a wide range of clients and industries for over 16 years. I'm currently working as a full-time technical lead in Cisco's Online and Mobile Experience team.

I've held both strategic and tactical responsibility for large-scale web & application development, business architecture, integration and interface / information design projects while demonstrating success at every level. In addition to my knowledge and experience with numerous languages and platforms, I have an uncanny eye for savvy design and an extensive background in usability, marketing and merchandising strategies that engage users & drive sales in a cross-platform, multi device world.

My rich online experience spans technology, marketing, usability and interface / information design. I have significant "client side" experience that assures an appreciation for your needs and expectations.

Prior to my current position I served as VP of Strategy and Technology with boutique agency estrategyfirst. I've held director and VP level positions at The Wine Enthusiast Companies, Petals Decorative Accents and Savvy Networks. I began my career working with technology for the United States Air Force.

My online work was recognized as early as 1997, winning various web design awards and having sites featured in design and development galleries. My early innovations in animation techniques were featured in the Amazon highly rated and bestā€selling book Effective Web Animation: Advanced Techniques for the Web.
