Join Mobile Twin Cities for our next meeting on November 14th.
Brewing Caribou Coffee’s mobile app
Eric Caron & Kelly Rehrauer will discuss the past/present/future of the Minnesota company’s mobile platform & presence. They’ll discuss how they’re introducing an established company to the Product Management Model, the technical limitations that led them to switch from Titanium to native development, and what they’re doing to upgrade the company’s mobile capabilities.
Eric Caron is the Sr. Director of Customer Applications at Coffee & Bagel Brands (a.k.a Caribou Coffee), and before that was at Best Buy & a couple startups. He’s a Minnesota native, joined GitHub in 2009, and is unapologetic about liking PHP & NodeJS. When he isn’t talking about websites, mobile apps or APIs, you’ll find him with his family in Eden Prairie (attempting to teach his 2 & 5 year old the difference between a French press, Aeropress & ChemEx).
Kelly Rehrauer started at Coffee & Bagel Brands as the Product Manager for the Caribou mobile app in July. Before Caribou, she helped clients build digital producs at GoKart Labs and spent a decade doing every job imaginable at Target Corp. Her obsession for creating meaningful experiences comes through in work and life. On the weekends, you’ll find her shamelessly drinking Caribou Blend from her Keurig, while searching for the best tacos in Minneapolis.
Food and beverages will be served at 6:00pm. Presentations begin at 6:30pm.
