Nerd in Charge – House Digital
Jo Minney is a small business founder and technical communicator based (for now) in Perth, Western Australia. She is passionate about user experience, data-driven decision making, cats and travel – not necessarily in that order. She’s also an avid maker, from 3D printing to sewing to woodworking, and loves combining technology and creativity to make cool stuff and encouraging others to do the same.
By day, you’ll find Jo working primarily with charities and government organisations or technical consultancies, helping them to create bespoke digital platforms through her business, House Digital. You might also find her donating her time via the Mission Digital program to help tackle social issues (such as gender inequality, domestic violence and global poverty) through the use of technology.
Through the federally funded Australian Digital Solutions program Jo has provided advice and training to hundreds of Aussie small business owners on all things digital, with a special focus on website creation and management. She is also an ambassador, sponsor and lead mentor for She Codes Australia, a not for profit organisation aiming at making tech jobs more accessible for women. An accomplished international conference speaker, Jo can regularly be found with a microphone in hand speaking about WordPress, accessibility, user experience, imposter syndrome, closing the gender gap and pockets.
