LJ Host


At LJ HOST we pride ourselves on our attention to detail. Our websites are beautiful and functional. Our process is mature, and our team is efficient. Our team consists of some of the top designers and developers in the industry, consistently delivering astonishing sites using the latest in HTML5, CSS3, PHP, RoR, jQuery, WordPress, and many other technologies. By trade we are a LAMP house, and have always loved the open source community. Was that enough acronyms for you?


Founded in early 2001, LJ HOST has stood the test of time as one of the longest standing firms in the industry. Started in Madison, WI, with a computer and a dream... we have been through the dot com bubble(s), the hype of Web 2.0, and the frenzy of social networking.

Nowadays, we are a mature, location-independent company, with team members across the globe. We supported semantic web and mastered CSS before it was cool. We've continued to choose quality over quantity. Our top team members are based in (but not necessarily working from) Panama City, Panama; Sevastopol, Ukraine; Madison, WI; and beyond.

Executive Team

Jesse Schoberg - Principal Web Architect

Principal Web Architect

Founding LJ HOST in April of 2001, Jesse has brought the company from a one man local web design shop to an international authority in the web development industry. With more than a decade of experience, he has led his team to create and collaborate on countless websites. He is self-educated like many of the most passionate entrepreneurs, and shamelessly addicted to technology. For Jesse, keeping up with the latest trends has always been a passion not a chore. While extremely well-versed in many technologies, CSS has consistently been his biggest vice.

Global Operations Director

Joining LJ HOST in 2005, Laura has directed LJ's global team to complete 100s of websites. Laura’s main focus is daily operations and working directly with all outsource clients, while managing the global team. Having a ruthless eye for detail and quality, Laura ensures only the best product gets delivered. Beating deadlines and making happy clients while comparing the world's beaches is her specialty.


While our team is constantly working on projects of many types, our past focus of wholesale/outsourcing projects and retail web development is broadening to include the internal ventures side. We're strongly pursuing opportunities in this category, and expect Ventures and Acquisitions to play a big role in the future of LJ HOST.
