NoSQL leader expands its mobile capabilities with the acquisition.
Brooklyn, NY and Omsk, Russia – October 21, 2013 – Thumbtack Technology, a leading software engineering consulting firm in Brooklyn, New York, announces the acquisition of Al Digit, a mobile development company based in Omsk, Russia. This acquisition elevates Thumbtack’s ability to service a larger client base by incorporating an established mobile engineering team, skilled front-end developers, and designers.
Founded in 2003, Thumbtack is an industry leader in NoSQL consulting and scalable software engineering services. With key practice areas in Ad Tech and Media Monetization Solutions, Thumbtack has developed a reputation for expertise in Big Data and Cloud Computing, along with practices in mobile development and CMS integration. The acquisition brings a portfolio of mobile technologies into the company, as well as a team of 20 highly experienced mobile engineers.
“Al Digit has been our most reliable development partner in mobile applications, and one of our best-managed consulting partners overall. By bringing them into the Thumbtack fold we’re able to dramatically boost our capabilities across multiple devices,” explains Ben Engber, CEO of Thumbtack. “We see the industry moving towards increasingly complex integrations between sophisticated server-side applications and a variety of end-user platforms. The ability to create highly optimized mobile applications is central to delivering such services. This merger allows both companies to further their strategic goals in creating scalable solutions in an end-to-end capacity.”
Al Digit, founded in 2009, began with a focus on iOS and Android mobile platforms. As the company has grown, Al Digit has expanded its expertise to include business automation, embedded systems, e-commerce and gaming. With this acquisition, Thumbtack moves toward strengthening its IT capabilities to service a wider array of client needs.
“By acquiring Al Digit, Thumbtack Technology gains a reliable partner in the mobile arena that allows it to capitalize on more iOS and Android opportunities,” said Pavel Sumarokov, CEO of Al Digit. “Meanwhile, this acquisition gives great benefits to Al Digit in terms of marketing, teamwork, and our ability to participate in exciting new projects.”
Dmitry Pashkevich, CTO of Thumbtack Technology, adds, “I have seen Al Digit grow from a small company into a high-end mobile development company, and I am excited to work with Al Digit co-founders Pavel Sumarokov and Andrew Tokarev closely and hopefully learn from one another during these upcoming months and years.”
The addition of Al Digit’s team is a crucial step in Thumbtack’s expansion into mobile technologies, with the combined expertise of both companies – in front-end development and scalable solutions – enabling them to generate a stronger market presence going forward.
Expect to see Thumbtack making a stronger presence within the mobile sector, as they bring their expertise in performance, scalability, and agile development to mobile technologies.
