Jonathan Layes

Project Director

Jonathan joined Kula Partners in the summer of 2015 after working in a diverse set of industries from interactive entertainment to oil and gas. With a strong technical and entrepreneurial background, Jonathan brings a broad set of skills including project management and business analysis. Having spent many years in both development and management roles, he thoroughly enjoys liaising between technical experts and business stakeholders.

A longtime proponent of agile practices, Jonathan is always looking for ways to simplify how things get done. By reducing the complexity of delivering projects, whether big or small, he strives to have teams spend more time on delivering value and less time drowning in red tape. “Individuals and interactions over processes and tools” is his favourite line from the Agile Manifesto.

Outside the office, Jonathan has two kids that constantly challenge his creativity for finding interesting ways to spend their time. Jonathan’s passions include sea kayaking, alpine skiing and travelling the world, all of which are shared by his family.
