Web Development by Jonathan Prykop

Hello, my name is Jonathan Prykop. I have been developing and programming for the web professionally since 1997. I would like to bring my years of experience in web programming and design to your company.

I am interested in both short-term and long-term projects: getting your organization on the web for the first time, maintaining and improving your existing site, or developing new complex applications.

I am currently seeking long-term full-time on-site employment as a mid-to-senior level web developer. I am willing to relocate. References and most contact information have been omitted from the web version of my résumé. For more information, please send an email to web@prykop.com.
