New Development Center Addresses Sharp Increase for iLoop Mobile’s Services, Will Speed New Products to Market
iLoop Mobile, a premier solutions and services provider for mobile marketing to the world’s largest brands, agencies and enterprises, today announced the opening of a development center in Krakow, Poland. The center includes an engineering team with resources and expertise to help iLoop Mobile speed the enhancement of its trusted mobile marketing platform, release new tools for mobile campaign analytics, and bring new innovations to market.
“Despite the weak economy, we’re seeing a sharp increase in demand for our products,” notes Matthew Harris, CEO iLoop Mobile. “With the addition of our Polish team, by the end of the year we will have tripled our engineering resources and more than doubled our services capacity. We are accelerating the delivery of our customer- and market-driven roadmap. We will release the industry’s first comprehensive messaging analytics dashboard in early 2010 and the first enterprise-grade, scalable mobile marketing application for small and medium businesses. We are now in a stronger position to address the increasing demand for services from our largest customers.”
Jakub Slocki, head of iLoop Mobile’s technology in Krakow, continues, “We’ve hired the core of our team in Poland–nearly 20 people to date–and already they are integrated members of iLoop Mobile’s engineering staff. We chose Krakow based on our past experience with its exceptional local software engineering talent. Our team understands high-availability solutions and brings experience and strong technical skills from local and international telecom, Internet and mobile services companies. The North American and Polish teams act as one integrated unit, contributing to the company as a whole, not as separate locations or groups. Adding Krakow’s skills to iLoop Mobile’s formidable understanding of mobile marketing will keep us at the industry’s forefront.
