Josh Eaton is Partner and Lead Facial Hair Cultivator at Reaktiv. He ships beautiful code facilitated by Sriracha, an intense calling to be your WordPress hero, and coffee.
Josh is so hardcore that he took the CPA exam for kicks. He doesn’t miss his shiny corporate gig. In fact, he shucked that to travel the world extensively with his wife. Josh created his own complex language and is busy weaving it into his code. He has gypsy feet, hearty carnivore leanings, and will be delighted to play you a song, thank you very much.
We’re lying about the weaving-a-complex-language-into-his-code thing. Made you look.

“If it weren’t for open source, I’d probably still be an accountant. Everything I’ve learned has come from looking under the hood at open source projects. I love being able to give back to the open source community to attempt to repay how much it has given me.”
Hello all, I’m Jay Hoffmann, Lead Developer at Reaktiv hailing from just outside NYC. I joined Reaktiv in January of 2017 and have been hacking away with this incredible team ever since.
Before coming to Reaktiv, I’d always worked for pretty large companies: first at Sesame Street and later at Penguin Random House. What drew me to Reaktiv was its small, ambitious team of developers and challenging projects. When we approach a project, we come at it from a unique perspective.
Sometimes our solutions are straightforward. Other times we’re inventing something completely new that’s custom built for our clients. The opportunity for innovation was something I could get on board with right away. For my part as Lead Developer, I work on the front-end, the back-end and everything in between.
My love for the web goes back to my high school years. Working on the web was a hobby before it was a career and it’s a passion I’ve carried with me for many years. I often fill my time with side projects, some small, some big, that I hope benefit the web in some way. Not too long ago, I ran a site called Tidy Repo that helped you find valuable WordPress plugins you could be sure would work. The site’s still up, although I haven’t maintained it in years. My current labor of love is The History of the Web. It’s a weekly newsletter with a dose of the web’s history, paired up with an ever-growing timeline of the most important milestones on the web.
