Joe LaBonte

Full Stack Engineer

Problem with a plugin? Yo, he’ll solve it.

With more than 15 years of professional web development experience under his belt, Joe is more than an expert at building slick, responsive websites—he’s a pro at explaining the technical details behind them too. (He also knows how to break dance, but that’s a story for another day.) When he’s not making websites and wise cracks around the office, Joe enjoys fine dining and defending the title of World’s Greatest Dad.
