Tack Mobile growing and hiring in RiNo

The Tack team at work.

RiNo-based mobile-app developer Tack Mobile is looking to hire iOS and Android developers and an account manager.

The company grew from about 15 to 20 employees in 2013. "In the last year, we've added five or six people," says Tack President John Myers.

Tack customers include PearsonCartegraph, Tendril and the Colorado Rapids.

The company in 2013 also released several of its own speculative mobile apps, include Noted, a note-taking app, and a puzzle game called Adrift.

"It was an opportunity to do something new," Myers says of the latter. "We hadn't built a game before." He says it's been a good learning experience for Tack. "Games are extremely competitive. It's been a moderate success."

Tack's next release is a mobile app in the lighting space, built off of the API for Philips hue, the electronics company's new "wireless personal lighting" product. "We saw an opportunity to improve on what they've released," says Myers.

The company is firmly entrenched at TAXI in RiNo, and just signed a lease on a new 8,000-square-foot office in the campus' DRIVE 2, currently under construction. Myers says he expects the company to move into the new space by the end of the summer.
