    Employee Spotlight: It All Started with Microsoft Paint

    By Dave Paprocki on 6/3/21 1:18 PM

    Osvaldo Gama recently joined MetaRouter as a Software Engineer Specialist. His job is making it easier to onboard a new client. Many of our clients have multiple websites, so he's creating a tool to make it easier on them and us to onboard all their settings to our system. The new tool will go to one client first and then roll out to every other one. To get to know him a little better, we asked him a little about his background, joining MetaRouter, and his thoughts on the future of the world.

    Tumblbug Deeply Understands Users While Optimizing Resources

    By Dave Paprocki on 11/17/20 9:00 AM

    “We migrated from Segment when we realized that MetaRouter allows us to minimize the resources we’re spending yet continue to make fully informed decisions as a company.” -Jaeseung Yum, CEO of Tumblbug

    For independent content creators, success—if not survival—depends on funding projects and building a fan base. But when Jaeseung Yum was a film major in college, he realized there was no clear path to generating support. To solve that problem, he founded Tumblbug, a Korean online crowdfunding site.

    Veterans in Tech: The Transition, the Similarities and Transferable Skills

    By Dave Paprocki on 11/11/20 12:44 PM

    As the United States celebrates and reflects on Veteran's Day 2020, all of us at MetaRouter are incredibly grateful for the sacrifices that active, inactive and fallen military members have made for our country.

    The MetaRouter team is fortunate enough to have an Air Force veteran working alongside us. So, we decided to sit down with our very own Val Kautz, a former Air Force Staff Sergeant and current Product Engineer for MetaRouter, to chat about her own story and maybe help Veterans looking to venture into the tech space along the way.

    How to Build Learning Apps for Kids While Following Regulations

    By Dave Paprocki on 11/3/20 4:00 PM

    When Apple announced new regulations, HOMER Learning’s entire product model was put in jeopardy:

    “At first, it looked like we were completely cut off from working with any third-party tool,” says Ripal Sanghani, Senior Product Manager.

    That meant no more marketing analytics, product analytics, even data storage.

    A Digital Marketing Playbook for E-commerce

    By Dave Paprocki on 9/23/20 3:15 PM

    E-commerce has been growing rapidly and playing an increasingly larger role in the consumer experience. In fact, by 2021 more than ¼ of the world’s population, some 2.14 billion people, will be shopping online. Their online purchases will account for nearly 20% of retail sales worldwide. Some experts predict that this number will increase to more than 95% by 2040.

    Add to these figures the changes in consumer behaviors and preferences brought about by the sudden and rapid spread of COVID-19 and it is easy to see the massive opportunity for e-commerce retailers.

    By Dave Paprocki on 9/15/20 4:37 PM

    “Everything changes, and nothing stands still.”  -Heraclitus

    We’ve all been forced to deal with a lot of changes in the last few months, and there are certainly more to come. But as we’ve hastily adapted to new ways of working, this may actually be a good time to consider voluntary changes to improve work going forward. 

    Customers and markets seem to be changing faster than ever; you may find that changing up the marketing tools in your stack will help you keep up.

    How to Use Marketing Tools While Staying Compliant

    By Dave Paprocki on 8/18/20 10:00 AM

    Marketing is complicated enough without the headache of compliance.

    Doing the job well requires leveraging the right third-party tools, but sending first-party data to external systems adds in more complexity for organizations who need to stay compliant with strict regulations.
