Ivan Johns returned to his native San Diego in January 2010 to become a programmer for Obu. Before returning to the West Coast, Ivan built websites and web applications at marketing firms in St. Louis. This included a stint at the global firm Fleishman Hillard, where he handled front-end web development for telecom giant AT&T.
Long before he took classes on the subject, Ivan learned how to program by reading books and blog posts. Obu employees know Ivan for his quiet dedication. As his desk in the corner of Obu’s office, he silently plugs away at coding client projects and internal programs. He is typically one of the first to arrive and one of the last to leave.
