Ah, innovation. The queen of useless words, derided for years. But like a cold you haven’t fully recovered from, innovation just keeps bouncing back. There are conferences about innovation, governmental bodies responsible for innovation, and of course innovative products that really aren’t. But since we’re not even using the word correctly anymore, let’s finally scratch it from the business dictionary.
Hi there, I’m Hugo, a Senior UI & UX Designer based in Lisbon.
I was 4 years old when my dad gave me a ZX Spectrum. I started exploring it and was immediately hooked. Since then I have loved technology. Understanding how it works, exploring new devices and interacting with new platforms.
Hey there! I’m Pranav Agrawal. I began studying computer science because I felt that it gave me the opportunity to work on so many future projects. To get started on a product or an app today all you need is a computer, access to the Internet and your own knowledge. That’s it.
My name is Mo Mozafarian. I’m a designer by trade and a hacker by passion. I grew up around computers and was introduced to computer graphics at an early age. Ever since I’ve been keeping myself busy by designing and building a variety of online and offline products. I always thought I’d become an engineer since I was good at math and physics but I ended up going to university to study visual arts and after that graphic design.
Mobile strategy is a ubiquitous term in tech circles. And yet, for all the talk mobile strategy generates, the actual results aren’t what had been hoped for in the industry.
In the first place, very few organizations are even acting on the desire to create a mobile strategy. A mid-2016 report from Adobe and Econsultancy found that 48% of organizations had no mobile strategy in place at all. And even the 52% who say they do have a mobile strategy also admit that their strategy is poorly defined.
Hi, my name is Michael Kral and I’ve just joined the Mokriya team as an iOS Developer. I started developing iOS apps almost 5 years ago after finishing up my Bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University. Since graduating I’ve worked on many iOS apps from startups to corporate B2B apps in both Objective-C and Swift. I’ve also created my own app named Humidex that allows cigar enthusiasts to catalogue and create review notes about their cigars.
“I’ve been traveling since April. I have no deadline,” says FJ, an iOS Engineer and a member of the Mokriya team. Originally from France, FJ is now on the road permanently, bouncing from continent to continent, all while holding down a steady job.
We are excited to announce that Mokriya, Inc. has been acquired by Nagarro, Inc. When we first started Mokriya, our mission was to build great software that could change the world. From the beginning, we fully internalized Marc Andreessen’s hypothesis that “software is eating the world.” We went about executing on this vision by hiring the best engineers, designers and product managers that we could find across the globe. We are proud of the globally diverse and eclectic team we’ve built — we come from more than 10 different countries. Our backgrounds cover a wide range, from math Ph.D.s to self-taught programmers to computer science professors to design mavens. This has been proven out by the work we’ve done with our clients, including industry giants like Google, Twitter, Intel, AT&T, Verizon, SanDisk, Salesforce, Estee Lauder, and many more.
Microsoft is now more innovative than Apple. A year ago that would have sounded as ludicrous as, say… president Donald Trump. But after both tech giants unveiled their new devices for professionals this October, the tide has turned. Journalists and techies proclaimed Surface Studio a bolder, more innovative, and more complete product than the new MacBook Pro.
Welcome to our new series on the blog, where we sit down with individual team members and discuss their challenges, triumphs, and adventures. For our first interview, we’re speaking with Michael Corrigan, Mokriya’s Head of Growth, about how he combines travel and work.
