Some of you have been asking about the new faces showing up in the Addersphere – for anyone keeping count, our team is growing! We shared this picture a few weeks ago and I feel it’s about time we explain who all the new faces are!
To say that things have been moving quickly would be a gross understatement of the progress we’re making. It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six months since our last round of big investor pitches, and three months since we reached our first round funding goals.
The Adder platform is coming together and nearing completion, which has us very excited. I’ll touch more on this later–when our CTO, Brandon Bush, does a feature on our development thus far. For now, we’re extremely excited about the team we’re building, and would like to take a moment to welcome them on board!
With all this exciting news, let me bring you up to speed on where things are at with the Adder Mobile team! Here’s some of the new talent that’s joined our team recently!

Kevin and Brandon keep our development office feeling lively, too — any time you walk in there, you’ll hear an epic video game soundtrack playing.
Bridgett is a Digital Marketing Specialist at Adder. She helps the team by spreading the word about research that Adder and their partners have done, so potential drivers and potential clients can learn more about what Adder has to offer. Bridgett likes to make her blog posts fun, informative, and honest. Sincerity is important to Bridgett, especially with her writing and she tries to convey that in her work with the brand.
When Bridgett isn’t writing for Adder, she’s writing for her personal blog, spending time with her dog, or practicing aerial silks and other circus arts. She’s also been working hard on a dramatic podcast with some friends as well. Check it out here!
We have a few more team members that have recently joined our team and others that are coming on board soon, as well! Stay tuned for a follow up post and see how our team is growing!
