Mindgrub Technologies LLC
was founded in 2002 by former teacher Todd Marks, who launched the company in his Ellicott City basement with six employees.
The first couple of years were lean as Mindgrub built their portfolio and trained computer science interns. They envisioned that the mobile space would see tremendous growth.
After the iPhone debuted in 2007, the demand for mobile apps exploded and, as a result, Mindgrub was poised to expand the business both locally and nationally. The results trickled in slowly last year, a banner year. The company secured new contracts, hired new employees and moved into larger office space in Catonsville
. It also gained recognition from the Baltimore Business Journal and the Chesapeake Regional Tech Council.
Mindgrub bills itself as a "technology innovation agency," combining technological, strategic and creative expertise. The company creates applications for the Web, social media and mobile technology using Flash, Drupal and other software platforms. It has partnered with Forbes, Discovery Kids, Johns Hopkins University, Sonoma County and Yamaha Motors to build applications.
Some of its projects have included creating an iPhone app for Sonoma County, a Facebook app for the New York Social Sports Club and a mobile-friendly homepage for Idyllwild Arts students.
With 35 employees, Mindgrub currenty has eight open positions
