Hello! 👋 I'm Jonathan Pichot.

I'm an urbanist, technologist, and endlessly curious person.

I've spent much of my career helping governments build better software, often for cities. I've been a full stack developer, product manager, and public sector entrepreneur, including:

I've taught GIS at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and introductory javascript at the Factory in Grand Rapids. I occasionally speak about my work at conferences and events.

I'm currently working as an independent contractor focused on digital product discovery, development, and deployment with a strong focus on cities and the built environment. I'm actively looking for other projects, particularly those that touch on urbanism, energy, data, and mapping. Interested in working together? Feel free to contact me here.

I care deeply about cities and communities. I've founded and run volunteer groups, I've been a neighborhood block captain, and I've studied cities through data. I consider myself a local of Paris 🇫🇷 and Grand Rapids 🇺🇸.
