JCore is a Texas-based company dedicated to creating radically simple industrial IoT products. Since our founding in 2014, we’ve made modern web, cloud, and embedded technology accessible to a wide range of equipment manufacturers and asset owners.
Because we’re funded by operating profits rather than venture capital, we invest in each customer’s long-term success rather than chasing arbitrary growth targets. With a relentless focus on product quality, we deliver a high-end customer experience while offering our employees a healthy work / life balance.
Our commitment to sustainable relationships doesn’t end with our customers and employees. Our suppliers are vital to our success, and we strive to treat each of them with the highest level of fairness and respect.
An engineer with a passion for simplicity and technical excellence, Jason oversees JCore’s product development, sales, and overall strategic direction. After receiving his bachelors in electrical engineering from the University of Southern California, Jason began his career developing mission-critical electronics and software in areas including seismic exploration, oil and gas drilling, financial services, and industrial safety monitoring.
Today, Jason still does a great deal of hands-on hardware and software engineering, while also shepherding JCore’s customer development and general management. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, where he enjoys raising his family, spending time outside, and fixing up old houses.
In addition to integrating popular open source tools, Andy has created countless groundbreaking original libraries for JCore in areas including automatic code generation, untrusted code execution, database change detection, and software build management.
Andy lives in Austin, Texas, where he’s heavily involved with the local cave exploration community. He has mapped previously unexplored cave systems across the United States and Mexico, contributed to conservation and education efforts, and even written software to visualize cave networks in 3D.
Forrest is a computer science student at Trinity University who joined JCore in 2022 as an intern in both software engineering and marketing.
Born in Washington State, he grew up abroad, spending high school in Vietnam where he became passionate about technology through competitive robotics. Between high school and university, he spent a semester in Wyoming and Utah learning outdoor leadership through NOLS.
He began a career in software engineering by working on freelance and startup projects before spending almost two years interning for PayPal, where he developed web applications to support the developer team. Interested in having a greater impact and using newer technologies, he joined JCore in 2022. His goal is to learn more about modern web development to improve the way end users interface with technology.
