Digital agency Digital Pulp has named Jason Trobman to the newly created Chief Technology Officer position largely for his skills with the open-source software Drupal.
Trobman previously worked at American Media, where he managed a development team building a range of Drupal sites for mass-market audiences. Prior to that, he managed Drupal development at NYSE Euronext.
Trobman's responsibilities at Digital Pulp include leading team members in developing proprietary Drupal solutions, as well as overseeing the technology department, guiding site development and cultivating talent.
Trobman’s previous experience as the cofounder of mobile development shop StrikeInc Corporation, for which he designed and developed popular multilanguage app Phraseaholic, will drive Digital Pulp in the app arena.
“Jason's positivity and track record as an enthusiastic and supportive leader, along with his passion for code mentorship, make him a perfect fit for our culture at Digital Pulp," says Brian Loube, partner, managing director, Digital Pulp. "It’s a huge win for the agency to gain a technology leader with great people management skills and hands-on developer talent.”
Trobman is based in New York City and will report to Loube. Digital Pulp designs interactive platforms for clients that include Dartmouth, Bausch + Lomb Biotrue, The Urban Institute and The Visiting Nurse Services of New York.
