Maps.com of Goleta Hires Programmer Eric Rushing

He has been working on various company projects as an intern

Maps.com announced Monday the permanent hiring of programmer Eric Rushing.

Rushing, who has been working on various projects with the company on an internship basis, accepted the offer to become a full-time member of the Goleta-based team.

A graduate of Cal State Northridge, Rushing has applied his computer science qualifications in a number of business environments and to a variety of products, including the development of Web-based control applications for energy production.

His primary focus will be the continued development of the company’s multiplatform Internet and mobile application programs, including products targeted at newspapers, education and businesses.

“I relish the opportunity to create systems that improve lives, from the living room to the classroom,” Rushing said. “Maps.com operates in a number of different markets through several divisions, which will provide variety as well as some welcome pressure to deliver.”

He will also assist with the development of the company’s already strong Web presence, such as the online map store Maps.com that can receive more than 2 million visitors each month.

— Stephanie Jensen is the marketing coordinator for Maps.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
