I currently work at NetMotion Software, a technology company headquartered in Seattle, WA. Founded in the embers of the 9/11 tragedy, NetMotion was designed to provide a much more robust, reliable and unbreakable network connection for first responders in an increasingly mobile world. Since then, all kinds of industries have embraced mobile working, from nationwide postal services relying on iPads to process deliveries to the world’s biggest airlines embracing Android to perform rapid flight turnaround times. NetMotion helps companies that cannot afford to compromise when it comes to mobile – testified by the fact that almost 90% of American police forces are using devices powered by this technology.
It’s also not just about network performance; a growing number of organizations have been adopting an operational intelligence approach to managing mobile fleets. Using NetMotion, they’re able to visualize and dissect the vast volumes of data that their mobile devices are generating, helping them optimize their activity (imagine being able to see coverage blackspots in realtime) and diagnose all kinds of problems (instantly see exactly why employees are having connectivity issues on their laptops).
NetMotion is backed by Carlyle Group, probably the best-known and most prestigious private equity firm in the world. My job is to run the global marketing team and to help manage the company’s Canadian presence out of Victoria, BC. Our aim is to grow the company rapidly over the next few years, and start building the meaningful brand that the underlying technology deserves.
