Employee Spotlight: Jacob Meigs
Jacob Meigs is one of our newer web developers, having only been with the team for 6 months. In that time he has already witnessed/lived through enough Website Pipeline antics to feel quite at home.
With experience building websites before coming on board, he has been able to help our Account Management team address customer tickets and take on custom website requests. His real claim to fame, however, is his swift and efficient mastery of the new office hoverboards.

What is something about you that not a lot of people know?
I have a dog named "Beautiful Perfect Anne Perkins". It's a joke from the show Parks and Recreation.
My girlfriend and I have been traveling to and remodeling a house in Lynchburg, VA for the past year, and plan on renting it when renovations are finished.
So far we have built a retaining wall, ripped up 7 layers of carpet and 3 layers of vinyl flooring, removed mold, put in insulation and drywall, installed a french drain, installed kitchen cabinets, and done lots of outside landscaping and painting. It's a lot of work but we are almost done, and I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Jacob is one of 60+ Website Pipeline employees, all of whom are in North America. His trademark look includes a pair of sunglasses, which we suspect may be permanently affixed to his head.
