Marty is an excellent analyst and executor of web and software projects. His group provides good work for a fair price. He is extremely attentive to customer needs.
I worked with Marty on the first William Morrow Web site and have recommended him for projects large and small since then. He is smart, soft-spoken, honest, clear-headed, and his projects are delivered on time and often, UNDER budget.
Martin has a deep understanding of the digital space and he is a highly creative problem-solver. His approach is both strategic and creative ensuring clients get the very best return on their investment. One of his great strengths is articulating, with clarity and enthusiasm, the value of digital ideas to people with traditional backgrounds and leanings. I hope to get the chance to work with him again.
Overall, Marty is reliable, thoughtful and eminently capable of understanding my needs and building tailored, measurable solutions.
Most recently, Marty helped me develop and execute a Web 2.0 strategy for Financial Times. As the lead consultant on the project, Marty developed several applications that work together to leverage the viral nature of social media platforms like Facebook. He created an innovative and highly successful Student Subscription Offer application that continues to be the most cost-effective customer acquisition channel for students. The Student Offer helped ignite an online community that coalesced around a Financial Times fan page he created to work hand-in-glove with the offer.
I'm more than happy to write a recommendation for Marty as he was a formative figure as I began my digital career. When I reported to Marty at On2, it was a tumultuous but exciting time. We were creating some of the first interactive streaming video programming for the internet. There was no roadmap and big, often challenging personalities were involved. Our team acted as producers, project managers, product developers and technologists all rolled into one. Despite the obstacles – organizational, technical, or otherwise - Marty was able to provide a clear roadmap to guide the shows and teams to success. His ability to connect with people transformed contentious relationships into positive collaborations that resulted in products I’m still very proud of today. More than a team leader, he was a mentor to me. I would gladly work with or for him again if given the opportunity.
H2O and Juxta Digital have worked in partnership for many years. Marty provides best-of-breed technical solutions in support of the branding and interface solutions crafted at H2O. Juxta's services include content managment systems and other database programming required by our clients. Juxta's pricing is very competitive and Marty and his team are very knowledgeable, polite and respond quickly to a variety of requests. (no matter how unusual) we highly recommend his services to anyone in need of programming services.
Martin's acute sense of detail and client focus help drive his proven success in the business. Martin is a good team player and is exceptional in client relations. I am confident Martin will excel in all levels of his career.
I worked closely with Marty during the time we were at Wiley together and was extremely impressed with his knowledge of online business models and the online "community" as a whole. He also has been a guest speaker for several of my classes at NYU and was one of the students' favorites, both in terms of his knowledge and his speaking style. Not to mention that he's an all-around good guy!
Martin was a sea of calm in an otherwise turbulent and unsettled environment. He was always a trustworthy and dependable person to bounce ideas off of.
I've worked with Marty and Juxta Digital on several occasions. There are many dev and design shops out there, but Marty and Juxta take the time to lead a very productive discovery process. There is a lot of heavy lifting up-front, so that we are all on the same page with the same goals--just the way it should be.
Martin is a clear communicator and highly intelligent professional. His ability to understand complicated concepts makes him easy to work with.
