Jen is the International Projects Manager at mySociety. She lives in London and works directly with organisations anywhere in the world, helping them with the practicalities of deploying mySociety 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.
Jen travels widely to meet partners on their home ground: it’s always helpful to see 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.
