Hire Jess

Always interested in chatting about new opportunities. I live in England and love remote work. But get in touch if you’re elsewhere! If an opportunity may not be a good fit for me, happy to work to direct focus at some of the really amazing talent I’m lucky enough to work with. If you want to chat about a role, a project or cake find me on Twitter or email me at jessica(at)closetoclever.com

    Hi Jessica

    I’m dropping you a line to see if you would consider giving a keynote talk at SymfonyLive in London on September 18th?

    I’m helping to organise the event and a few of my colleagues recommended your talk ‘Impostor Syndrome and Individual Competence’ as one they’d love to see live and that it would be a great fit for the conference/audience.
