Mobile Roadie Appoints Vova Soroka As New CTO
Enterprise Tech Engineer To Join Mobile Roadie Leadership Team And Spearhead Platform Innovations and Improvements
PALO ALTO, Calif., June 16, 2016 – Mobile Roadie, a leading mobile app creation and marketing platform and a division of Intellectsoft, announced today that Vova Soroka has been named Chief Technology Officer, effective immediately.
“Vova brings a wealth of development expertise, a strong management background and a keen sense for engineering user-friendly products to the Mobile Roadie team,” said Mobile Roadie CEO Gino Padua. “His relentless drive for excellence will be critical as we double down on our mission to provide clients with a best-in-class platform and newly-innovated capabilities and features.”
Soroka joins the team from Toluna where he served as Vice President of Product Management and later as VP of Development Operations. There he contributed to the creation of Toluna’s online market research products with a focus on analytics and online communities. Previously, Soroka spent 16 years at blue-chip technology leader IBM. While there, he worked with IBM’s Collaboration Technology team to research emerging innovations in mobile, video, and social networking platforms and capitalize on those trends. Most recently, he led the Global Technology Unit in the IBM Israel office.
“Our goal is to make it easy and accessible for anyone to build a mobile app and engage with their target audience, whether it’s a brand seeking to connect with its consumers or a band looking to share its music with fans,” said Soroka. “In addition to offering a seamless app-building experience, we want to provide app owners with the opportunity to test out new technology innovations that might not be mainstream yet. We are also very excited to roll out a new advanced analytics and user engagement system later this year, which will allow app owners to make strategic engagement decisions based on real-time user data and trends.”
Acquired by software services firm Intellectsoft in 2015, Mobile Roadie has undergone a transformation of late, introducing a newly-redesigned website and announcing Padua as its new CEO.
In the coming months, the Mobile Roadie team will roll out new pricing options and product capabilities including new themes, improved interface, robust designs, improved security, bug fixes, and app code optimizations. These changes will be complemented by a reinvigorated focus on client services and support, along with a soon-to-be-announced new advanced analytics and user engagement system.
