Fredrick Jones

Hello, I’m Fred and I write some pretty awesome code. With my background in design and my passion for programming, I pride myself in creating an attractive and user driven front end while maintaining a functional and organized back end. I thrive on finding creative solutions to programming conundrums. With 9 years of experience in front end development, I’ve been able to help focus various teams in moving to newer tech. I have also planned and developed new features as needed on multiple projects. I love the challenge of learning new languages and tech.

Jesse Hunsaker

Director of Information Technology at Blade HQ

From day one Fred has been great to work with. He was our lead Front End developer here at Blade HQ and he fulfilled that job expertly! He is a very knowledgeable, capable and passionate front end developer. He is a reliable, energetic and hardworking employee. He is always willing to help in all stages of the development process and wherever the company needed his help. His attitude and sense of humor is a great combination to work with. His ability to collaborate with everyone in our IT department and with other departments is an asset. I highly recommend Fred as a Front End developer and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him!

Seth Rumbaugh

Front End Web Developer at Blade HQ

I have had the pleasure of working with Fred at BladeHQ for the past year. As Front-End Developers, we worked closely together as we collaborated on several different projects and tasks given to us by our manager.

Through my interactions with Fred, I have come to know him as a diligent and driven individual. He completes tasks in an efficient and timely manner and to his best abilities. This work ethic, along with his impeccable communication skills, makes him a great asset and contributor in group project settings and in the office space. He showed these qualities as we worked together on implementing a new web design at BladeHQ. Fred was able to help implement the new design using HTML, Bootstrap, CSS and JavaScript that was required with great technical precision and ability. While all these qualities, abilities and skills are important, what really sets Fred apart from most people is his loyalty to his family, friends, and those he works with. This loyalty makes him someone you can trust completely and turn to at any moment.

I have all the confidence in the world in Fred and recommend him without reservation. He has all the necessary qualities and abilities that any employer would want at their company.

Kyle Challis

Senior Web Engineer at Blade HQ

Fred is easy to get along with, hard working, well-learned in his trade, and passionate about expanding his knowledge base. He would make a strong addition to any front-end web development team, and I will miss working with him!

Daniel Espinosa

Web Developer at Namify, LLC

Fred is a really easy going individual, so it is really easy to get along with him and to work with him. During my time at Namify his help has proven to be invaluable when it comes to the Front End. Whenever I needed help with Angular or some CSS Styling, Fred either knew the answer or was able to find it really quickly. He has a good sense for making things look good.

Skyler Hair

Chief Technology Officer at Stealth

"Dependable" is the word that comes to mind when I think of Fred. I had the pleasure of working closely with him while overseeing a complex e-commerce platform we worked on together. On more than one occasion, I was thrilled to see the attention to detail he put into even the smallest of tasks. It is apparent from the quality of his work that he takes great pride in what he does.

Fred has a personality that you just can't help but like. I obviously have a great deal of respect for him as a developer but I also know he is an amazing friend, husband, and father. Fred earns my highest recommendation.
