Myriad Mobile, a full-service enterprise mobile and web application development company headquartered in Fargo with an office in Minneapolis, is expanding to Sioux Falls. The company, recently named to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest growing companies, was attracted to the technology and talent in the area, with connections made through the One Million Cups community.
In December of 2015, Myriad Mobile co-founder and CEO Jake Joraanstad presented at One Million Cups (1MC) in Sioux Falls at the invitation of John T. Meyer, 1MC organizer, CEO and co-founder of Lemonly. Joraanstad accepted the invitation in hopes of finding new clients and team members to continue building his rapidly growing company.
Austin Hanson approached Joraanstad after his presentation. Hanson, a Sioux Falls native and South Dakota State University electrical engineering and computer science grad, had recently moved back to Sioux Falls, after living in California and working on Amazon Music's Android products for several years. Today, Hanson is Myriad’s Director of Technology and Consulting, and will lead the Sioux Falls operation with software engineer Marcus Nowick.
The company of nearly 40 mobile engineers, designers, architects and business consultants has strategized, designed and deployed more than 350 technology projects for notable national brands including American Express, US Bank, Cargill, Bobcat and Monsanto.
In addition to finding tech talent, Myriad has begun working with a number of Sioux Falls-based businesses and organizations to solve problems through inventive technologies. The company has recently started projects with The Good Samaritan Society and Diamond Mowers.
Myriad is currently leasing the second floor of Lemonly in downtown Sioux Falls as the company explores options for a more permanent space.
There is better training for our workforce in Sioux Falls. A multitude of options are available to meet businesses' needs at the postsecondary level including city programs, state grants, technical training, and a new $50 million scholarship program for technical school students.Read More
