Post #: 34

I'm cofounder of Alohar Mobile, located in Palo Alto. Robert Scoble named Alohar Mobile atop his list of the 9 hottest technology companies he met last year.

We are looking for a MySQL engineer with Java experience for a Mobile Big Data opportunity. We are developing the first Context-as-a-Service Platform (CaaS) for mobile apps and smartphones. This cloud-based Data Analytics platform enables a whole new category of intelligent and context-aware mobile apps -- like Predictive Siri and Google Now.

Come join the team whose platform has been featured in TechCrunch, Forbes, Inc Magazine, WSJ, Gigaom, and other media outlets.­

My cofounder was the Platform Architect of Google's "Blue Dot" location service used by many mobile apps.
