Mobile phone software developer Metova has added four developers and one quality assurance engineer to its roster, officials announced today. The developers are Benjamin “Seth” Beech, Jamie Hignite, David Mays and Kalan Lee Stowe. Taylor Jackson is the quality assurance engineer.
Beech received a bachelor’s of electrical engineering from Auburn University. Hignite previously worked with the Information Technology Support Services for the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command. She also worked for four years developing web applications for Yum! Brands. Mays and Stowe graduated from Auburn with a bachelor’s in software engineering.
“All of our new developers are proficient in multiple programming languages, but more importantly, they are all great thinkers and problem solvers,” said David Lane, Metova’s vice president of technology. “Their diverse backgrounds in Web and graphic design and computer related services will complement the diverse needs of Metova’s client base.”
Jackson’s role with Metova will be to test client’s mobile applications and to improve the development of those applications. He earned his bachelor’s of science in business administration degree from Tennessee Technology University.
On pins and needles waiting for the Microsoft holiday store to open in The Mall at Green Hills? Only eight more days, my friend. The pop-up shop will be open for business outside the lower-floor level of Nordstrom starting next Friday.
Microsoft executives said today they will open more than 30 pop-up stores this holiday season to provide shoppers "a premium retail experience" — and one of them will be at The Mall at Green Hills. The tech giant, which recently announced plans to roll out its Surface tablet and will also release its latest operating system this fall, is building a network of permanent stores. We're guessing it's safe to say the Green Hills pop-up is an audition for one of those future locations. More details to come soon, the company says.
