Jeff Harrell
Director of Engineering; Chief Architect, PayPal


A graphic designer turned UI developer, I’ve been making websites professionally for years and enjoy all aspects of new projects, from their development to their design and architecture.

During the day, you can find me at PayPal where I am the web developer and lead for all things web-checkout and JavaScript related. In my free time you can find me playing with my dog Marley; over at the beach relaxing; or, if it’s the middle of the night, it’s a good bet I’m hacking away at one of my pet projects.
