Work Hive Member Profile: Jim Nielsen

jimJim is a skilled designer and developer, currently developing a powerful platform to run Hillary Clinton’s digital campaign, with the startup company The Groundwork. The company is no ordinary startup. Some big names run the show, like the chief technology officer of President Obama’s digital campaign. Jim started with the company back in their NYC headquarters and has since made the big cross-country move to Utah to be closer to family, after he and his wife learned they were expecting their first child, one and a half years ago.

Jim has been a techie all his life. In college he worked on some freelance web design projects, which then led him to a company in NYC and eventually to The Groundwork. Jim grew up in St. George and understandably has a love of playing golf. Although he misses the richness of city life in NYC, he loves how easy it is to escape into open spaces when you live in Salt Lake City. When he has a chance to get away he likes to fly fish, hike and dabbles in climbing.
