August 30, 2016 – Myriad Mobile, a full-service mobile and web application development company, is celebrating five years in business this month. Since 2011, Myriad has strategized, designed and deployed more than 350 technology projects including national brands U.S. Bank, Bobcat, American Express, Cargill and Monsanto.
In just five years, the company has grown from two people in a dorm room on North Dakota State University’s campus, to 35 people in multiple locations across the upper Midwest. In addition to its team growth, Myriad was also recently named to the Inc. 5000 List of America’s fastest growing companies–a ranking based upon sales growth.
“We attribute a large part of our success to our talented and diverse team of mobile engineers, business consultants, designers, and architects,” Myriad Chairman and Co-founder Ryan Raguse said. “Our team is passionate about what they do and really enjoy bringing their creative insights and experience to mobile technology solutions for clients. And we do it in the Midwest, which we’re proud of.”
Despite its rapid growth and national client base, Myriad is proud of its Midwestern roots; working with regional leaders to deploy leading technologies. The company recently launched new projects for Minnesota Public Radio, Midco, Wanzek Construction, General Equipment, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota and Minnesota State University Moorhead.
Myriad Mobile, formerly Myriad Devices, began during the historic Red River Valley flood in April of 2011, when co-founders Jake Joraanstad and Ryan Raguse were students on separate university campuses simultaneously building mobile applications. Prompted by the needs of the flood, they created an app that provided news feeds, river levels, and road closure maps related–thus giving life to Myriad, which incorporated in July and officially launched in August.
“That’s still where we start with a project. What are the needs of the client?” Myriad CEO and Co-founder Jake Joraanstad said. “At the same time, the innate curiosity of our team continues to drive our ability to stay at the forefront of the newest technologies and put them to work to solve problems for our clients.”
“We’re embarking on an exciting time in technology because we’ve never had so much computing power paired with so much mobility. Get excited to see what technologies like virtual reality, beacons and wearables can do to enhance, connect and keep people safer,” he added.
