Consistent Innovation Is the Norm at These 3 Tech Companies

September 28, 2020

Boston tech has been busy. 

In the past year, professionals across the city have faced a bevy of challenges they likely never fathomed. To top it all off, they’re still chasing innovation, applying technology to their processes in new ways and finding time to hold down the fort. 

Employees at the following companies have built software to help design fitness training plans, support motorists who are broken down on the side of the road, and prioritize bug fixes in open-sourced code. While business objectives differ from organization to organization, a need for consistent innovation remains at the center of everything they do.

“Change is a constant in our industry,” Antonella Stellacci, general manager of consumer platforms at ASICS Digital, previously told Built In Boston. “We look at technology as an opportunity to solve problems in new and better ways.”

Many of those problems require collaboration and collective brainpower, which is why they’re all currently hiring across the board. As far as what’s next on their lists, think integrated texting capabilities within mobile APIs and ramping up a global e-commerce presence.

They can (and do) leverage automation, machine learning and data-driven analytics. 

“Our approach is to model the real world,” Co-Founder and Swoop Platform CTO Paul Widden previously told Built In. “It’s our responsibility to take a client’s input and create a product that meets the underlying real-world needs.”
