The company intends to use the capital to grow its technology through hiring product engineers and developers. It has immediate openings for front-end developers, back-end developers and interface designers (http://www.mocavo.com/jobs).
Launched in March 2011 and led by CEO Cliff Shaw, Mocavo focuses on creating an engaging and social experience in the research of family history. It has already created a custom search engine focused in genealogy, an automated system to send undiscovered content to users, and mobile/web apps to self-publish documents and photos.
In conjunction with the funding, Foundry Group Managing Director, Seth Levine, will join the company’s board of directors.
