MojoTech makes hires, launches United Way redesign

Posted:

PROVIDENCE – Software and application design agency MojoTech last week announced several new hires, including the addition of Jack Parker to the company’s development team.

Founded in 2008, MojoTech creates full-featured Web and mobile apps on behalf of its clients, which range from startups and aspiring startups to Fortune 100 companies. MojoTech has risen from a startup on Kishfy’s patio in 2008 to a $2.4 million business in 2012, and last year MojoTech was named one of PBN’s fastest-growing Rhode Island companies.

Last month, MojoTech officially celebrated the opening of its new downtown office at 56 Exchange Terrace in Providence, and has continued to expand to keep pace with the increasing demands of its growing roster of clients, the company said.

Parker brings to MojoTech his experience in business development for Pfizer in Hong Kong and in project management for Andera, a Providence-based banking software company where he led projects for its largest clients. Driven by his passion for software engineering Parker later developed extensive experience building state-of-the-art Web applications through consulting and working with a local startup.

In his new position as a MojoTech developer, Parker will create full-featured web and mobile apps for clients on multiple platforms and collaborate with the rest of the MojoTech development team to turn clients’ ideas into reality, rescue stray projects, and help clients make smart decisions.

“We are excited to welcome Jack to the MojoTech team,” said Nick Kishfy, founder and CEO of MojoTech, in a statement. “His passion for software and web development will be an asset to our current and future clients.”

Parker is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

The same day MojoTech announced its new hires, the company also announced the end of a collaborative project with United Way of Connecticut to redesign the nonprofit’s 2-1-1 Child Care services search engine.

The free community referral service connects residents with information about state-licensed child care centers and family child care homes, as well as listings for nanny agencies, nursery schools, play groups and summer camp programs.

In fall 2013, United Way recruited MojoTech to overhaul the 2-1-1 Child Care website. The newly designed search engine is more intuitive and easier to navigate, MojoTech said, making the experience of finding child care providers simple and stress-free.

The new website went live on Feb. 24, 2014, and may be accessed at search.211childcare.org.
