Charlotte Jackson

Front-end Developer

Charlotte first started tinkering with the web in 2009, but her interest really flourished during her studies for a Digital Media degree at the University of Brighton.

Having studied web development, visual design, HCI, and usability, she was ready to put her studies into action in the agency world. Charlotte’s first agency was Ten4Design in Shoreditch, followed by a stint at RocketMill in Crawley, before deciding that Brighton—with its vibrant web community—was where she wanted to be. And so she came to Clearleft.

Responsible Development

Charlotte works with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, learning new technologies and techniques, while considering their effects on performance and accessibility.

The web has been good to Charlotte. People have shared a huge range of information and resources. That’s one of the reasons that she believes so strongly that everyone should have access to the benefits of the web. In her spare time, she co-organises codebar Brighton, a weekly workshop for those who are under-represented in tech to learn to code for free, and in a safe and collaborative environment.

Away from the office

Charlotte loves being outdoors, and she’s always planning her next adventure. When she isn’t online, she can be found close to mountains or by the sea, running, or chasing sunsets, taking hundreds of photos along the way.
