MOXIE earned a $100,000 seed-stage award in Launchpad’s recent 2020 Cycle 2 contest, sponsored by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama (EDPA).
The firm provides fully operating IoT systems that collect and analyze data about an industrial company’s equipment and other assets in an easy-to-use app dashboard.
Co-founder and CEO Ross Wesson said MOXIE will use the Launchpad funding to recruit talent to fill roles critical to the startup’s growth plans. Birmingham's MOXIE provides IoT systems that collect and analyze data about an industrial company’s equipment and other assets in an easy-to-use app dashboard.
“A hundred years ago, Birmingham earned the nickname of being the ‘Magic City’ because of our dominance in the Industrial sector. Let’s do it again,” Wesson said.
Dr. Austin Gurley, co-founder and chief technology officer, said the startup is ready to begin expanding its workforce.
“With all the negative job market news out there today, it’s awesome to announce that MOXIE is hiring. If you are smart, curious and consider yourself a ‘doer,’ want a fun and fast-paced work environment, and the platform to make a real impact in your field — let’s talk,” Gurley said.
“We are hiring today for five new positions on the team. And that’s just the beginning of the new Alabama jobs we are working to create.”
