San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) December 05, 2012
SaaS Markets, a global leading business app store provider, recently appointed Howard Rosen as its new vice president of Engineering. Responsible for the company’s global software development operations, Rosen will reinforce SaaS Markets’ momentum as it continues to grow globally and launch software-as-a-service (SaaS) app stores for businesses around the world.
“Howard brings extensive experience in successfully building and managing software development teams,” said Ferdi Roberts, CEO and founder of SaaS Markets. “Howard will be applying his expertise to enhance the SaaS Markets’ MarketMaker platform to fuel continued innovation in our SaaS app stores for businesses and providers.”
Rosen joins SaaS Markets with more than 15 years of experience managing software development teams, during which he has demonstrated the ability to bring complex products to market. His skills are derived from his impressive professional background as a software engineer, manager, architect, director and VP of Engineering/CTO for two venture-funded startups.
In 2004, Rosen was vice president of Engineering for SaaS startup Groxis, Inc., during which he transformed a stealth mode engineering effort into a thriving production software development team, while also improving company morale and communications. His second startup undertaking was in 2006, when he joined SearchMe, Inc., as VP of Engineering and chief technology officer and developed a product roadmap and strategic vision for the company.
“SaaS Markets is transforming the way businesses research and purchase cloud-based business software applications through its 23 global Web-based app stores,” said Howard Rosen, VP of engineering of SaaS Markets. “Working with SaaS Markets gives me a tremendous opportunity to apply the insights I’ve gained over the years and bring new innovation to add even more value to this evolving marketplace.”
