who's hiring in cle: wheedle, triple analytics and more

Welcome to the latest installment of Fresh Water’s “who’s hiring” series, where we feature growing companies with open positions, what they’re looking for and how to apply.
John Weston knows how hard it is for bars and restaurants to draw customers. For the past seven years, the entrepreneur and president of Prime Marketing and Management Group Weston has tried just about every gimmick to bring patrons to establishments like Barley House, Town Hall and Harry Buffalo.
“It’s a pain in the butt to get people in,” says Weston. “The only network we had was social media, and that takes hours and hours of scrolling to find target customers. I thought, what if there’s a platform for restaurants that want to get the word out?”
So Weston and his partners, Brian Stein and Evan Cooper developed the Wheedle app. Wheedle, or the process of persuading someone to do something or give you something, allows users to enter details about the kind of evening they are looking for. Participating restaurants and bars can then respond with offers that match the request. The app is free for customers and establishments only pay if an offer is accepted.

“We want to have the Match.com functionality for the hospitality industry,” says Cooper. You have people marketing to you.”
Wheedle has been beta testing the app since its soft launch in October. After some tweaks and gathering feedback, the team is ready for a full regional launch this spring. In anticipation of the re-launch, the company is developing its internal development team.
Currently Wheedle needs a technology lead to oversee the outsourced development of its iOS and Android apps while the company prepares to bring development in-house over the next year. The ideal candidate will have Django/Python and mobile app development experience.  Contact Brian Stein for more information or to apply.
