Hi, I’m Justin Jackson
This year, in 2018, I’m building a new podcasting startup with my friend Jon Buda. It’s called Transistor.fm. If you need podcast hosting, let me know!
I also run MegaMaker (training and books for SaaS and indie software companies). This is what’s paying the bills while I build Transistor! My offerings include Marketing for Developers and Jolt, which have sold 6,000+ copies.
I’ve been working with SaaS companies since 2008. I was the Product Manager at Sprintly and Mailout, and have consulted on marketing & growth for startups in London, San Francisco, Boulder, and Portland.
My blog, podcasts, and videos focus on topics like product marketing, traction, finding out what people want, idea validation, and mental health.

The cool thing about buying from independent makers is your dollars get invested directly in their families. ? pic.twitter.com/aSHbqbplXp
