New Hires in Mobile: Beeline Interactive, Flurry, Gameloft & More

It’s been another rather active week for the mobile hiring space with 12 developers showing new activity according to data from LinkedIn and other sources. While highly active companies such as Gameloft continue their high influx of new hires, other smaller companies, such as Gowalla, also showed new faces in the past seven days. Of all the highlighted developers, only a few showed higher-profile hires, including Flurry and InMobi.

In terms of Flurry, it technically isn’t a new hire, but Anthony Watkins takes over as the interim managing director in New York. That said, he is still currently the director of partner integration at Flurry. At InMobi, Vivek Iyer is brought on as “Strategy & Operations .” Though the exact details of the role are not noted, he was previously an associate at Allegro Capital Advisors
