McCord brings on board more than 15 years of experience in the technology industry, spearheading product development, IT operations and professional services for several small start-ups and rapid-growth enterprises.
Prior to joining Mobile Posse, McCord was the founder and CTO of ICX Media, a digital media technology and data company focused on independent video creators. He has also held roles at mobile advertising company Millennial and Verizon.
At Millennial, he was responsible for all research and development efforts that ultimately led to many product innovations for the company. He also led all product and engineering at the company, where he ensured more quality delivery cycles, better communication across the organization and introduced a prioritization process to ingest business and technical projects more efficiently. At Verizon, he helped to enable a location application program interface for all mobile platforms.
In this new role, McCord will oversee the company’s engineering, development, project management and quality assurance teams. He will help Mobile Posse double down on its recently announced Firstly Mobile offering – a next-gen content discovery platform that creates native device experiences to make the smartphone better.
“Steven brings extensive years of experience to this position, most notably in the wireless technology sector,” said Jon Jackson, Founder and CEO of Mobile Posse. “We are eager for his leadership and expertise in propelling key company initiatives forward especially Firstly Mobile, and welcome him to the team.”
“As consumers increasingly want quality content seamlessly available, solutions like Mobile Posse’s Firstly Mobile platform are the leaders in content discovery,” McCord said. “Not only are these technologies beneficial for consumers, they also provide outlets for carriers and OEMs to gain additional advertising revenue, which is pretty remarkable. I’m excited to be on the team driving the company to its next level of growth.”
