Meet the Yakindo Professionals
The name Yakindo is derived from the history of the firm's development ... Yakima, Washington and Jakarta, Indonesia.
The roots of the Yakindo Web Designs partnership date back to 1997, when Danielle Surkatty was invited by a local ISP in Jakarta, Indonesia to collaborate on a website project to assist expatriates who were moving to Indonesia. A consultant for a local firm serving major multinational corporations at the time, Danielle accepted the opportunity. Together with her team they developed an award-winning website, Living in Indonesia, A Site for Expatriates, that still eases the transition to living in Indonesia for expatriate families to the present day.
Deeply rooted in the expatriate business community in Jakarta, Danielle's work on this first website grew into a new firm, Yakindo Web Designs, which provided web development services to multinational companies, national companies, non-profits, and foreign government-funded projects throughout the Indonesian archipelago.
Repatriating back home to Yakima in 2002, Danielle further expanded her client base to focus on local firms in Yakima and throughout the State of Washington. Seventeen years of living overseas and working with people of many nationalities has taught Danielle to look beyond the local community and explore opportunities to assist companies to grow on a regional and global scale through their presence on the Internet.
The advantage of working with a wide range of clients over the years is clearly evident in the websites developed by Yakindo - whether they were developed to promote a business, non-profit, or government entity.
Building on strong organization skills, Danielle is responsible for overall project management, planning site architecture, content development, website buildout, search engine optimization (SEO), social networking, and promotion in Yakindo Web Designs projects.
