About Alex Scott

Alex joined CivicActions as an Engineer in 2006. His well-honed aesthetic sensibility and his technical proficiency inform his work in equal measure, and he is one of the most skilled and practiced front-end developers on our team.

Alex’s command of a full suite of theming and configuration tools (JavaScript, SASS, Compass, HTML, PHP, Drupal, CiviCRM, Ruby on Rails) and his early grasp of responsive theming contribute a cross-functional breadth to his work with CivicActions. His mobile-friendly redesign of sites for the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation and Common Sense Media were two of our first projects to demonstrate the utility of responsive theming, and he has also contributed significantly to projects for Amnesty International, ASPCA, Greenpeace UK, Transparency International, Tesla Motors, and many others.

Before joining CivicActions, Alex worked as a front end developer for the London Aquarium and London County Hall. He was a graphic and web designer for Nexus Alpha (London), and leant technical support to British Telecom and News International.

Alex received a B.A. in Visual and Performing Arts from Brighton University, UK, and presently lives in Madrid. The grandson of renowned painter William Scott and the son of Academy-Award-winning filmmaker James Scott, Alex’s artistic sensibility runs deep in his blood. He’s found the role of the themer/engineer to be the perfect blend of his many core passions, though windsurfing, cooking, gardening, cycling, meditation, music, cinema and photography all get a decent share of his attention as well.
