Jason Vickers – 5 Years 

Jason joined Marathon in the summer of 2013 as a web application developer. He quickly joined Marathon’s growing Digital Marketing team working on large-scale websites and e-commerce projects. His background as a full-stack developer made him a perfect fit for the team, and he is just as adept with back-end development, as he is with the front-end. Jason became an Umbraco Certified developer in 2015 and has since given talks both within Marathon and at related User Groups on the topic. He also authored the article on this blog titled: Migrating Your Website to Umbraco CMS

Jason proudly served in the United States Marine Corps and holds a Bachelor of Science from ECPI. Jason loves the outdoors, especially when he’s spending time with his dogs, Mojo and Mollie.
