Peter Jackson

Peter Jackson
Managing Director, Intridea

Website | @peteonrails

Before you ask: no, he is not THAT Peter Jackson. But yes, he can get a table at nearly any restaurant in LA.

Peter Jackson is a mountain climber, rails developer, project manager, and musician from NH. His work for Intridea is based out of Washington DC, where he is responsible for delivering Rails and mobile applications to their clients.

He has been building and delivering web and mobile-based solutions since 1995. A trained Scrum Master, he believes strongly in applying Agile principles to deadline-driven environments to foster high performance.

Before coming to Intridea, Pete was the Vice President of Engineering for Kajeet, Inc, where his team built a national mobile phone service for kids. Earlier in his career, Pete worked as an Enterprise Architect and Developer for a number of large corporations.

His technical passions include geospatial programming, location based applications, data structures, and the fanatical removal of cruft.

Originally from Baltimore, Pete holds a B.S. degree in Information Systems from the University of Maryland, and an M.B.A from Loyola University.
