Mutual Mobile today announced their move to a new headquarters in Austin’s Capitol Tower Building to support the company’s rapid expansion in the US market. Having formerly occupied three different historic buildings in central Austin, the new 40,000 sq. ft. office space consolidates all Austin employees into a single location, with enough additional capacity to double staff size within the next 12 months.
According to a recent survey, Austin now leads the nation in terms of job growth, thanks in part to aggressive hiring by companies like Mutual Mobile. The company, which led Q2 tech hiring in Austin, has developed a reputation for attracting the best and brightest mobile talent in the industry. “Our goal is to make Austin the national epicenter for mobile design and development,” said Mutual Mobile CEO John Arrow. “Take a look at our parking lot and you’ll see license plates from across the country. We are attracting mobile talent to Austin at pace rivaling the semiconductor industry from 20 years ago.”
Mutual Mobile success is partly attributed to the unique holistic approach it takes to integrated design and engineering. The company is committed to a cross-functional organizational structure that places mobile strategists, developers, designers and support teams directly alongside one another to facilitate organic knowledge sharing. “Gathering the entire Austin team together in the same space fosters collaboration, increases innovation and shortens development times – resulting in superior solution quality and value for our customers,” said Arrow. “As our team continues to grow to meet the rapidly increasing market demand for mobile business applications, we’ll have the ideal space to accommodate everyone.”
While the company continues its exponential expansion in Austin, Mutual Mobile also has plans to further develop its global presence. Over the next year, an expected 70 developers and designers will join the India offices in Hyderabad and Bangalore to further fuel innovation and development capacity overseas.
“Ultimately, we want to be recognized as the leading partner in delivering mobile business solutions,” said Chief Operating Officer Tarun Nimmagadda. “Growing across geographies strengthens our hybrid delivery model, making high-quality mobile technology more affordable and accessible to our clients.”
