Welcome to the Team Jono Dahl
We’re excited to welcome the newest member of our Blue Ion marketing team: Jonathan (Jono) Dahl.
Jono brings an amazing background in digital strategy and marketing, most recently working in the UK for one of the world’s biggest media buying agencies. For those of you looking to land a gig here at Blue Ion in the future, Jono really impressed us with his relentless badgering. He also managed to confuse half our team with his nickname, brought our CofC alum count up to 8, and our lifetime Brit workforce up to 3 (miss you, Nicola).
In the great tradition of Blue Ion n00b shaming, Erin put him through a new twist on our traditional employee startup interview. Enjoy his responses, Brian’s guest photoshop work, and make sure to say hello online or in person.
