Hey there and hello,
we’re Nextmv

We pronounce it "next move" but we're not picky. We respond
to "next m-v" just as quickly. We’re a globally distributed team changing the way companies automate and optimize decisions.

Our backstory
in brief

If you go way back, our story is grounded in systems engineering, optimization research, ballistic missile simulation, and pizza delivery in the time of paper map directions.

More recently, our founding team spent years leading decision engineering at Grubhub, wrestling with the challenges of building automation and optimization solutions for food delivery. They saw a chance to serve developers tackling these challenges and others like scheduling and packing in a new way.

Enter Nextmv. We're delivering the power of decision science to every developer. It’s the missing link between data science and operations. Where data science answers what's going on, Nextmv's decision stack tells you what to do about it.

A bit about our team

Nextmv started with the optimization dynamic duo that is Carolyn and Ryan — and then Andrew showed up, creating a triforce that would build out our global team.

Carolyn Mooney

CEO

Carolyn analyzed simulations at Lockheed (missiles) and Zoomer (pizzas) before running Grubhub’s Systems Engineering team. When not starting companies, she coaches volleyball or plays with Nextmv’s CDO, Wally, at the park.

Ryan O’Neil

CTO

Ryan was an optimization wizard long before he led the Decision Engineering departments at Zoomer and Grubhub. He loves early baroque music and cats, especially his calico, Catalina.

Andrew Hoagland

COO

Andrew is a startup veteran, previously building Vetd, and was also an early hire at RJMetrics and Sidecar as a sales leader. He loves running, reading, golfing, practicing his Chinese and working with new founders in the Philly area.

What we value

Our values are aspirational and affect everything we do. At Nextmv, we hope to instill these as practices in our daily lives. We work toward these goals together and help each other along the way.

Community

We act as a group of skilled contributors with diverse backgrounds and a common mission. We listen to each other to actively instill empathy in ourselves. We introspect about our actions and their impacts.

Candor

We share information, from company strategy to small insights and feedback. We collaboratively review our decisions and code using the same process. We own our mistakes and admit our vulnerabilities.

Focus

We are ambitious and value achievement over status. We are innately driven to innovate and improve the world. We apply our time and skills effectively to challenging problems.

Balance

We separate our work from our self-worth to view and improve it objectively. We don’t overwork, and take regular time away to encourage creativity. We take care of ourselves so we can give our best to our team.
