San Antonio Office

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.

Jason McLaurin

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.

In the early 2010s, Jason became convinced that incumbent players in the industrial space were missing the boat on multiple technical revolutions: the increasing power of mobile web browsers, the rise of the full stack open source JavaScript ecosystem, and the efficiency of on-demand cloud computing. He channeled those beliefs into the founding of JCore Systems in 2014, partnering with savant software engineer Andy Edwards to build a full industrial IoT stack using these powerful and rapidly changing technologies.

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.

Andy graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelors in computer science and worked in a number of industries, including oil and gas, financial services, and advertising. After joining JCore in 2014, Andy integrated a wide array of emerging open source technologies to create JCore’s full stack Javascript development environment. Andy frequently contributes code back to the open source community, helping drive the forward progress of the open source JavaScript ecosystem.

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.
