Officials with Metova, Inc. and the city of Conway announced Thursday that the emerging tech firm is looking to add 100 employees to its workforce in the next few months.

Metova builds apps for major companies like Yelp, Dropbox, eHarmony and Microsoft and it is active in cybersecurity protection for private firms and the federal government.

Metova opened its Conway offices in January 2015 with the announcement of 60 jobs. The company said it is expanding by another 100 workers to meet the demands “of the rapidly growing mobile, web and IoT (Internet of Things) space,” and due to significant new business in the digital media industry.

CEO John Adams said Metova is seeking developers with strengths in Ruby on Rails, Java web and mobile app development, as well as talented UX and UI designers.

“We are looking for developers who are excellent problem solvers with superior communication skills to work in our unique culture while enjoying the quality of life Conway offers,” said Adams. “Our business is thriving and we’re proud to offer a total of 160 cutting-edge opportunities to developers – right here in Arkansas.”

Besides Conway, Metova has offices in Cabot, Franklin, TN, Washington, D.C., Augusta, GA, and Seattle, WA.

In addition to the jobs announcement, Metova said it has Ed Horton, a 20+ year technology veteran in marketing and business development. Formerly Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Business Development for Acxiom and Vestcom, Horton will work to grow Metova’s commercial business.
