I help companies build beautiful products and grow their customer base through strategic digital marketing.

A Little Background

Hi. I’m Ryan Jenkins. I've been a graphic designer » web developer » digital marketer » software product manager.

Schizophrenic? Maybe, but I think there’s an important connection between them all. I love to create! Making something from nothing, be it a painting, a clay pot, a web site, a spreadsheet, or a business, is one of the most fulfilling things a person can do.

While I middle school, I received a scholarship to attend the Baum School of Art where I learned from award-winning illustrator David Gothard who taught me to think in new ways.

At 15 I became fascinated with building web pages and taught myself HTML & CSS. Building web pages was pure creation in an exciting new medium. In college I worked as a web designer/developer for a little software company in Rexburg, Idaho called EZ-NetTools where I built over 75 client websites.

Soon I realized I was building websites for businesses who had no idea who to do with them, so I started doing digital marketing consulting. I taught small businesses how to measure their site’s performance and find growth opportunities. In 2007 I joined Mozy Online Backup where I managed email marketing, PPC, web analytics, conversion rate optimization, etc. From there I got my MBA at BYU and then joined eBay as a Product Manager in the Structured Data team.

What I Believe

  • People are basically good.
  • Companies should focus on the customer experience.
  • No matter what people decide to do, they should do it with the utmost pride and care.
  • I believe in lifelong learning and asking lots of questions.
