With more than 15 years of digital experience, Jones joins R/GA Sydney from SapientNitro where he was national technology director, Australia.

Since opening its doors in January 2013, R/GA’s Sydney office has grown to 10, with hires in both creative and experience design disciplines made. The appointment of Jones will enable the office to both grow its technology team, and help create new digital platforms for brands in the Pacific Rim Region. Skilled at simplifying complex technology concepts, Jones’ experience in large scale content and commerce platform development, mobile, social media, and emerging technologies will play a key role as the office continues to expand its client roster.

Prior to joining R/GA, Jones was a technical lead for SapientNitro’s Chicago office before relocating to Australia. During his time working at SapientNitro, he was responsible for building global development teams in the US, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and India working alongside global brands such as Luxottica, Chrysler, Billabong, Harley-Davidson, ResMed, Unilever, Snooze, Coca Cola, Westpac and Kellogg’s.
