The vision for ECHOSHOUT was inspired by founder Rob Jordan’s experiences as an X Gen. Aging parents coupled with a young daughter revealed the importance of voice assisted solutions. Neither were able to operate technology effectively, yet both were ready to utilize it. It didnt take long to get ECHOSHOUT up and running. Now we are focused on building Amazon Echo apps and skills that make life easier for Individuals, Families and Businesses. Whether you are a start-up, growing business or Enterprise company our team of experienced developers will support you through the new world of voice assisted solutions.


To have fun building useful apps & skills for progressive, visionary companies.


Rob began his career in project management with McNett Corporation, an international manufacturing company located in Washington State. Roughly six years later, he joined the Peace Corps where he served as a business development volunteer for the country of Ukraine. After his service, Rob began work with an established USAID consulting firm where he was employed as a business analyst, assisting private and public sector organizations with technical integration as well as organizational structure. These organizations encompassed a wide range of industries including but not limited to: manufacturing, education, disaster relief, local government, marketing, nonprofits, and others. Shortly thereafter, he was employed as a business development consultant in Central America with the international nonprofit organization Outward Bound. This experience is accompanied by a B.A. from Western Washington University and an M.A. from the University of Denver. Rob is now the principal of Idealist Consulting, a technical and business consulting firm for socially responsible businesses serving over 700 clients throughout the world.
