We are pleased to announce that Marcelo Calbucci is stepping up from his previous position as VP, Product, to take the Chief Technology Officer role at Hiya, where he will be leading our engineering, product, operations, and partner certification teams. In this capacity, Marcelo will look to grow Hiya’s leadership in the mobile space, delivering on our vision to make today’s calling experience smarter and more relevant for all 5 billion mobile subscribers worldwide!
The phone app has remained mostly unchanged since the smartphone launched over a decade ago. Hiya is fixing this through innovations designed to finally make the phone experience a great one. We make this happen by partnering globally with leading carriers and smartphone OEMs, including Samsung and AT&T. Despite being a startup, we are already making a big impact for our more than 50 million monthly active users in 196 countries (that’s all of them!).
According to Built in Seattle, Hiya is one of the Top 50 Startups to Watch in Seattle. With Marcelo’s new role, we are expanding our teams in Seattle, London, and Budapest with many positions open in engineering, product management, sales, and more.
