Austin app developer Mutual Mobile taking job applications

Over the next several months, Austin-based Mutual Mobile Inc., a developer of applications for iPhones, iPads and smartphones, will expand its workforce by up to 33 percent.

Sam Gaddis (photo), chief marketing officer at Mutual Mobile, says the company is adding 10 to 20 employees in the near term. Mutual Mobile currently has 60 full-time employees at 1709 Rio Grande St., a three-story, nearly 3,700-square-foot mansion in Central Austin that dates back to 1930.

By the end of 2010, Mutual Mobile probably will have more than 80 employees, according to Gaddis—meaning perhaps even more hires beyond the 10 to 20 on tap over the next few months.

On its website, the company says: “Passion for the mobile space is a requirement for all positions. Direct experience is a requirement for management and development positions.”

Positions available at Mutual Mobile include iPhone, Android and BlackBerry app developer, user interface and user experience designer, project manager and sales consultant.

“We are hiring across the board at the moment,” says Gaddis, who formerly was technology director at the Hill Country Conservancy in Austin. “We will interview anyone who is extremely talented or well-versed in any aspect of mobile.”

Customers of Mutual Mobile include Cisco Systems Inc., Del Monte Foods Co., Dell Inc., Gowalla Inc., Harvard Business Review, Hoover’s Inc. and StumbleUpon Inc.

In June, Mutual Mobile released Track Guide for Illinois-based National Speedway Directory. The iPhone app lists more than 1,300 motorsports tracks.

“We plan to continue our mission to build out the most capable, mobile-specialized technology consultancy in the U.S.,” Gaddis says. “Our core competency is pushing the limits of mobile technology by partnering with forward-thinking brands and agencies who really want to stand out.”

To date, Mutual Mobile hasn’t accepted any outside investments, Gaddis says. The company was founded in 2007.

“We are a lean, efficient team and currently don’t have any plans to seek funding,” he says.
