who we are
We are a creative and engineering studio focused on growing startups.
We solve business problems through design, storytelling and code.
Our founders met in 2014 while working on the Growth Team at Uber and have since teamed up to help other companies build their brands and inspire their customers.
Jon was born in Paris and grew up in Montreal where he studied Finance.
He hated it, so he moved to San Francisco to become an engineer.
He spent over 4 years at Uber, building and scaling growth systems,
enabling the company to onboard hundreds of thousands of drivers per week across hundreds of countries.
When not writing code, you can find Jon playing League of Legends, supporting Paris Saint-Germain
or cooking a mean coq au vin. Often all at the same time.
Jess is a San Francisco native with a background in creative direction and design.
Prior to co-founding Jon&Jess, she built and lead Uber's creative team in Amsterdam
and was a lead designer on Uber's Growth Team in San Francisco.
Before joining Uber, she served as an art director at a long roster of ad agencies
including CP+B and Evolution Bureau.
Outside Jon&Jess, Jess is an enthusiastic mom/dog mom, serial hobbyist and founder of the learn-for-leisure lecture series The Social Study.
Jon&Jess has been an invaluable partner as Bird set out to launch and grow our EMEA market. They understand the value of speed, quality, and flexibility when it comes to working with hyper-growth companies.

Head of EMEA Brand, Bird
When it comes to branding, design and web development projects for my clients, Jon&Jess is consistently my collaborator of choice. I couldn't think of a team that better understands my needs, ambitions and aesthetic. They've become a true partner to me and my business.
