Ed Iacobucci, the former founder and CEO of Citrix and a software industry veteran decided to evolve his passion for aviation. En-route, he assembled a group of versatile and diverse software professionals and mathematicians that developed a sophisticated platform, providing an extremely efficient solution for managing an on-demand air taxi service. The core components of the technology were a state-of-the-art operations management system and an integrated resource scheduling system.

When market conditions became more challenging in 2008, a group of investors lead by GTD Capital and United Technologies identified the opportunity to take the original software solution, and the value it provided, to other business aviation operators and into other vertical markets, which resulted in the founding of BoldIQ in September of 2008.

Over the course of the first six years of operations, BoldIQ productized its technology and acquired its first six business aviation customers in the USA and Europe. In 2014, the company signed an agreement with Jeppesen (a Boeing Company) to distribute its Astro Operations Manager and the Solver Realtime Resources Scheduling products in the Business Aviation market. At the same time, the company acquired its first customers in the transportation, mobile workforce, utilities and distribution markets.

Currently, BoldIQ is bringing its next-generation solution for real-time resource management, scheduling and disruption management to new industries such as healthcare, car sharing, construction, advertising and telecom.

These industries are continuously faced with demands to do more with the same or even less resources than previously. Solver delivers a proven way to unlock hidden value, with users reporting they free up to 30% of their resources and reduce operating costs by up to 25%, resulting in an increase in profitability of up to 20%.

With BoldIQ, our customers make informed and integrated decisions in real-time – all the time –  and free up to 30% of their resources while reducing their operating costs by up to 25%. Bottom line? We push the limits of technology to provide great value to our customers. If you join us, you will help drive real-world operational change in aviation, transportation, logistics, healthcare and more.

A place you like to work

We enjoy being a small, action-oriented team. Customers are our focus, and adding value to them every day is our number one goal. At BoldIQ, every employee counts and is deeply involved in our entire operation. We act with full transparency, in all directions.

We still call ourselves a start-up because we continue to grow and expand into new markets and industries, and we like the cultural element that the start-up mentality fosters. We take risks, move rapidly, and yes, sometimes make mistakes – and correct them. It is all part of our journey.

We have fun at work – the kind of fun that naturally stems from the drive and passion of a top-notch team who collaborates on a daily basis to add significant value to customers. We enjoy our time together solving challenging customer problems, even over a glass of wine on a Friday afternoon!

We invite the best and brightest to join our team and do everything we can collectively to make them feel at home.

Pushing the limits of technology

We are a customer-centric, delivery-focused team, and work each day to take our action-oriented optimization software to the next level of performance, delivery, and customer usefulness.

At BoldIQ you will not be working in a small silo figuring out part of a solution to part of a problem. Some days you may be working to enhance an existing solution, and other days you may be designing and developing a new solution for a new market. BoldIQ is a hands-on company, and team members – despite title or role – work both independently and collaboratively in a team environment.

Cool and relaxed environment

For the most part, we work in an open floor plan. Employees all have the latest sit/stand automated desks (with memory) and dual monitor setups and high-end PCs. With sustainability in mind, made of either recycled wood or fast growth rubberwood, each desk is as unique as the person using it.

Here at the office, you’ll kick off your week with Monday morning baked goods, enjoy Friday company lunches, and unwind with Friday afternoon wine and cheese. We also enjoy turning the occasional Friday afternoon into cultural experience, with employees bringing some of their ‘home town’ delicacies. We thrive on diversity and we celebrate it.

We also enjoy family gatherings. From a mini-golf outing to a year end celebration, employees’ families are a welcome part of our culture.
