Helping Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp customers with their custom template coding needs

“ Yo, VIP, let's kick it ”

I’m Stephen Jesson, and for the past five years I was lucky enough to work at Australia’s leading ESP, Campaign Monitor.

I worked as one of Campaign Monitor's legendary customer support engineers, and was promoted to Customer Support Team Lead for Australia in 2013. Between 2013 - 2015, I led a team of four very talented and dedicated email experts in the Sydney headquarters.

In addition to answering product queries, advising on email campaign best practise, analysing campaign reports and solving deliverability issues, a large part of my role involved helping customers with HTML email coding queries; troubleshooting their code, fixing their responsive templates and advising on design and coding methodologies.

I made the crazy decision in late April 2015 to give up Campaign Monitor’s cutting edge offices, barista-made coffees, gourmet lunches, XBOX Ones, olympic-sized table tennis tables and overseas trips, to instead pursue a freelance career. Yes, like I say: crazy.

I am now a HTML email coder and troubleshooter for hire, specialising in designing, coding and fixing custom Campaign Monitor and Mailchimp templates.

I have also partnered with the awesome team at Email on Acid to be able to provide you with screenshots of your final, coded campaign or template fix in over 40 email clients, so you can be confident that my work looks great across all devices.

So if you have a design which needs converting into a working Campaign Monitor or Mailchimp template, or are having issues with your existing, custom-coded template and need someone who knows Campaign Monitor (or Mailchimp) like the back of their hand to take a look, then as a certain Robert Matthew Van Winkle once said:

“ ...If there was a problem,
Yo, I'll solve it,
Check out the hook while my DJ* revolves it...

I'm based in Sydney, Australia and generally work between 9am - 5pm (AEST), Mondays to Fridays. See everytimezone.com for those hours in your own time zone. Saying that though, who am I kidding? I'm a freelancer, so it's certainly not unusual for me to get up ridiculously early or work late into the night to turn jobs around tout suite, so please don't be afraid to get in touch, no matter where you are in the world.
