Applico, a custom mobile app consulting and development company for Fortune 500 firms and consumer brands, announced that it has launched a new service designed to help existing clients and any other companies recruit internal mobile professionals.
The company, which itself has been adding mobile designers, developers, and strategists, is leaning on its expertise in finding the best and brightest in the mobile industry and lending that expertise to companies in need of in-house support. Applico has grown its staff by more than 300% since the start of the year.
“Applico has worked with a wide range of companies providing mobile app services ranging from strategy to development to quality assurance,” says Alex Moazed, CEO and founder of Applico. “We understand that these same companies need internal resources as well and in order to truly provide the best mobile support to our clients, we decided to do more.
"We know how to build mobile teams; it’s what we do every day to meet the surging demand for our services. Now, we’re coupling that knowledge with the understanding of our clients’ mobile resource needs," continues Moazed. "With the launch of our Mobile Staffing Department, Applico is building premiere mobile teams to ensure that our clients are best equipped for a connected future.”
In the last several months, Applico has doubled its staff from 25 to 50 and expects to increase to at least 75 by the end of the year. The staff increases are needed to meet demand from clients who require Applico’s services to ensure they have a consistent and cohesive presence across the multitude of mobile devices and platforms, from smartphones to tablets to connected TVs.
“The demand for mobile developers is intense and, despite our exponential growth, we have a sophisticated and comprehensive recruitment process that we use at Applico to ensure we are bringing on the best possible talent,” Moazed continued. “Our clients have similar challenges and we are applying the same processes we use to help them. As a matter of fact, our recruitment service has helped us grow our business even further as many of the mobile professionals we have placed have already come back to us asking for support on assignments.
