Nathan Gifford has been building websites and applications for over 20 years, after the new world of the internet piqued his interest in college at Indiana University. After graduating, he became a music pastor for the next 8 1/2 years. Then in 2006, Nathan started his own business, focusing on website development within Joomla CMS.
In 2007, he put his first two commercial Joomla extensions on the market. These extensions were launched under the name of DTH Development. Sales really took off, mainly with the flagship product DT Register. This success led to more extensions and the ongoing development of the DTH product line. In 2013, DTH Development was bought out but continued to run under the same name. Nathan was brought in to continue running DTH and steer ongoing development as the Chief Software Architect.
In 2018, DTH was acquired, and Nathan moved on, ready to start a new chapter. He started working with Pro-Com Products as the Senior Web Developer, greatly increasing his experience with WordPress and marketing. Then, he joined the team at Square 2 Marketing and shifted to a heavier focus on HubSpot development. In June 2020, Nathan was able to join the incredible team at Revenue River and is excited to merge his background and experience with the team and continue growing together!
Nathan and his wife live in Fort Collins, CO, where they presently have nine kids and three dogs. Four kids out of the house, one in college, and 4 still at home. They are foster parents and 4 of their kids were a sibling set that they recently adopted after 2 years in their home! They continue to foster other kids in addition. Whenever able, they love exploring and hiking in the beautiful surroundings of Colorado!
Nathan’s experience and exposure with the complicated world of full-stack development puts him head and shoulders above his peers. His ability to understand the big picture and bottom-line impact of client work makes him a pleasure to engage with. If I have questions, I ask Nathan. You should too." – Eric Pratt
From the first day Nathan started here, he had no hesitation to dig in head first and start solving long-standing issues that nobody could seem to figure out. His skill set and his mental attitude are a cut above the rest." – Mike Del Cuore
