New Hires in Mobile: Big Blue Bubble, Booyah, Gameloft, & More

It has been a fairly active week of new hires among mobile developers, according to data from LinkedIn and other sources. That said, while nine developers brought on new team members, the majority only hired one to two new individuals, with the only exception being Gameloft. Despite the low number of hires per company, the past seven days did shed light on two major hires from Booyah and Loopt. The former brings on Jason Willig as its new chief operating officer, while the latter has hired Susan Doherty as their new vice president of marketing.
