Jen is the International Projects Manager at mySociety. If you email firstname.lastname@example.org, Jen will be the one who responds to you first. She lives in London and works directly with organisations anywhere in the world, helping them with the practicalities of deploying our code and maintaining the resulting websites.
With a background as a working on media development and broadcasting reform projects in the Middle East and North Africa for BBC Media Action, she’s used to pitching in wherever needed for all sorts of projects.
Like Paul and Dave, Jen travels widely to meet our partners on their home ground: it’s always helpful to see our projects in the places where they’ll be deployed, and meet the people who will be using them. She’s passionate about ensuring that projects meet local needs and spending time with groups in their own countries helps her start to understand their motivations.
Out of hours you’ll likely see Jen lugging a camera around and taking pictures of almost anything or crocheting amigurumi monsters.
Jen is fluent in: French and Spanish, and could probably understand you in basic Italian. She’s dabbled in German and Arabic as well, but only a tiny amount!
