Senior Web Developer
Alex Vance first joined Bulldog as a web developer in early 2012. After moving to Austin, Texas in 2014 and completing a web development bootcamp, Alex brought his new skills back home. We're thrilled to have him back to assist our clients with interactive designs and functional programming. Outside of work, Alex enjoys all things Marshall athletics and snuggling up to his ferocious feline, Nibbler.
John, otherwise known as Pip, has a knack and passion for web development. After learning how to code from his former roommate, John graduated from Mountwest Community & Technical College and grew his skills to land a web developer position with the Bulldog team. He hopes to use his knowledge to better the Huntington community and when he isn’t coding awesome sites he’s probably playing guitar, eating No.1 Kitchen, or enjoying live music at the V-Club.
Although most of us are graduates of Marshall, we're thrilled to have a Mountaineer on the team! Jake started his career in web development as a student intern at West Virginia University. Since then, he was able to develop his skills at a large firm in Washington, D.C., but knew he wanted to end up back in the mountains. Outside of work, Jake enjoys camping, fishing and relaxing in his boat on the lake.
Molly joined the team in the spring of 2016, and we are more than happy to have her on board!

She moved to Huntington from Logan, WV in 2008 and graduated from Mountwest with an associate degree in allied health. In her spare time, Molly enjoys playing the latest video games and challenging opponents from all over the world.
