About Jay Darnell

Jay joined CivicActions as an Engineer in 2016, bringing nine years of web development experience and a passion for developing systems that have a direct positive impact on the world. He’s an adaptable and detail oriented problem solver who derives a great deal of satisfaction from the process of breaking complex problems down into their simplest parts.

Prior to joining CivicActions, Jay served as the sole web developer for the 5th largest school district in the state of Colorado. During this time he developed a Drupal 7 multi-site which is now being used by 36 schools for their day-to-day school-wide and classroom specific communications. He also developed an improved public-facing district-wide website in Drupal 7 with enhancements focusing on responsive design, transparency and a more streamlined communication process.

When he isn’t writing code, Jay spends his time playing the “bad guy” in nightly superhero battles with his two small children or trying to sneak in the occasional date night with his wife. He also enjoys drawing, gardening, reading, geeking out about space, traveling and spending time outdoors.
