Jason Pryor

Lead Web Developer

Jason has been involved with web design & development since 1999, when he taught himself the tricks of the trade by creating personal websites for his favorite hobbies. Since diving head-first into full-time development in 2007, he has had the privilege of designing & developing over a hundred websites for clients in industries ranging from small local businesses to major entertainment and film production companies. In this time he taught himself deeper programming languages such as PHP and JavaScript to handle complicated tasks of database management and user experience architecture.

He found his dream job, however, when a friend introduced him to Sean Daily in 2012. Taking a big step, Jason quit his job at a large software development company to work for Sean at Social Media Ninjas. It was at this time that Jason was truly challenged in the world of development – more specifically, the world of WordPress. He has authored a half dozen customized WordPress Plugins, and several dozen custom WordPress Themes to benefit the clients of Social Media Ninjas.

Jason is passionate about what he does, and he’s committed to exceeding expectations and ensuring the satisfaction of all Social Media Ninjas’ clients.
