headshot_bw_1X1-1For our latest installment of our “Meet the RocketBuilders” blog series, we would like to introduce Jason Cooper! Jason comes to us with a wealth of client success experience, whether that client is a Hollywood actor or a local brewery.

Q and A with Jason Cooper

Q: What is your role at RocketBuild?
A: Director of Client Success (which means project manager and account manager…kind of…)

Q: What do you do for fun?
A: Watch animated films with my daughter.

Q: What’s your favorite local lunch spot?
A: I probably go to Pearl St. Pizza more than any other spot. They’re good people.

Q: What languages do you prefer to code in? (Don’t worry, at RocketBuild languages are like pets. We love our own the most, but still like everyone else’s too)
A: I’m a project manager, so my preferred language is a mix between nagging, guilt trips, and the occasional well placed compliment.

Q: If you had to stay up all night for a hackathon what drinks and snacks would you need to keep you going?
A: Bourbon and ice cream. Not necessarily at the same time.

Q: What got you into your career?
A: I started in the film industry, both live action and animation, before moving back to Indiana and working for a craft brewery. Shortly after, I left to work for that brewery’s marketing agency, where I stayed until stepping aboard the Rocket.

Q: What’s your favorite band or artist?
A: Yes, their name sounds silly, but Drive-by Truckers are the most important rock band since The Stones!

Q: What got you into your career?
A: I started on the client side, working with different agencies like RocketBuild. I quickly learned that I liked that part of my job more than the other day-to-day responsibilities, so I figured I should find a way to do that every day.

Q: What’s your favorite type of project to work on?
A: I enjoy any project where we work WITH our client to really bring their ideas into the real world. That relationship is often more valuable than the work itself (even though our work is always valuable!).

Q: Fun Fact:
A: In college I had a job where I had to powder Gene Keady’s forehead before his weekly television show. He is still a personal hero.
