Who am I?
Hi, I’m Justin Jackson.
I’m the former Product Manager at Sprintly, and have consulted on marketing & growth for startups in London, San Francisco, Boulder, and Portland.
In January 2016, after the initial release of Marketing for Developers, I quit consulting to focus on my own projects. This past year I wrote Jolt, started MegaMaker and re-launched Marketing for Devs as a course.
My work has been featured on Lifehacker, Fast Company, CBC Radio, Inc., Entrepreneur, and 99u.
I host the MegaMaker podcast, and was also behind Build & Launch and Product People.
You may be interested in some things I’ve written. Here are some notable excerpts:
- “This is a webpage” – my essay on the importance of words. By far the most popular thing I’ve written, it garnered over 200,000 pageviews in the span of two weeks, and was translated by readers into 16 different languages.
- Things I’ve quit doing at my desk – this post was later published on Lifehacker and in the Hacker Monthly magazine.
- Twenty dollars in an envelope – an interview with my friend Jason Fried, on how he got his start in the software business.
- Heads Down – one of my pieces on @Medium. Was later featured on Adobe’s 99u, and in Fast Company.
