Our Founder

Inspired by his passion for using digital and social media to help grow his peers’ businesses, Jerry Nihen decided in 2009 that it was time to start a business – that’s when Jay Nine, Inc. was born.

For almost a decade, Jerry has been merging his expertise in project management, software development, and marketing to exceed the expectations of every client that has worked with Jay Nine.

His vision, enthusiasm, and passion for helping other business owners reflects in the way he approaches every project and manages the Jay Nine team. Jerry believes that no project is too big or too complicated, and that there’s a solution (or software) for everything.

In his spare time, you can catch Jerry playing guitar—a talent he’s been perfecting for the past 20 years—or reading a good non-fiction book.

OUR Developers

A team is only as good as the sum of its parts, and these are the parts of our team that make sure every development project is delivered on time, on budget, and on purpose.

The Jay Nine team is bigger and better because of our trusty squad of vetted developers.
