Our Team

We keep our team small, and focused on our key specialisms. It means our clients work one-on-one with familiar faces that all share the same philosophy and passion for what we do.

    Jon Kidger

    Senior Developer
    Former non-league superstar for Dalton Dynamoes AFC.

    Jon is Splitpixel employee number one – he’s been with us since 2011 as our lead developer. Originally a custom-coding proponent, Jon has embraced WordPress in the last few years.

    However, he’s never been one to be limited by a platform – specialising in WordPress and HubSpot integrations, he’s helped us push the boundaries of what both can do for our clients.

    His football days behind him, he has given himself over wholly to a life of code.
