MFour continues to expand with more hires this month, adding three new members to a team that has more than doubled in the last two years. The new staff members will drive ongoing enhancements that advance survey technology and power clients’ research projects. They include Software Engineer Arian Ashraghi and Quality Assurance Engineer Alex Oakley, who’ll join the Labs & Engineering team. Elliot Seid, a Resarch Associate, joins the Operations department.
Arian is an experienced app developer who’ll play an important part in advancing MFour’s capabilities, including creating new features for its best-in-class survey products. He’s an even more experienced violinist, having performed in concerts since taking up the instrument at age six. As an entrepreneur, Arian founded his own company, Irvine-based Freeglob, where he developed and marketed a shopping and social networking app called ShoppingAround. Arian is a graduate of Roudehen Azan University in Tehran, Iran.
Alex’s focus is to help ensure top quality in technology, including perfecting processes and defining best practices. He launched a quality assurance department in his previous job at SpinDance, a tech company in Michigan. Alex had lived in Michigan all his life until his recent move to Southern California. He says he’ll continue to root for all the Detroit sports teams, making him a natural fit with MFour’s company culture of widely-varying sports allegiances.
Elliot will support multiple facets of research projects, including fielding, monitoring, quality control and data analysis. Elliot is a graduate of University of California, Irvine, with a degree in Psychology and Social Behavior. He comes to MFour after previous jobs at Blizzard Entertainment and Stanford University.
We’re excited to welcome these three team members and will soon be announcing more new hires.
