Clay Martin brings experience building highly customized platforms for large-scale environments.
Kinettix recently named veteran development leader Clay Martin as the Director of Software Development. Clay will play a major role in managing the final coding and launch of the Dispatch1© software platform.
“We see our Dispatch1 software as addressing a key need in our market. It integrates with other platforms to give complete visibility into IT projects or dispatches. Users can manage the entire event end-to-end on a single platform," explains Chad Mattix, Kinettix's CEO. "Clay's experience in building highly customized platforms and leading diverse development teams will allow us to accelerate the launch of this critical tool."
Martin was drawn to Kinettix by the opportunity of developing a platform that will revolutionize the way the industry manages IT deployments. His position focuses on building an internal team at Kinettix to bring this vision about. "When I started at Kinettix, software development was outsourced to a third party. My role is to help Kinettix assert software development independence and ownership. I aspire to implement best-practice agile software development processes with the end-goal of making software development a Kinettix core competency."
Mattix says, "Dispatch1 is built as a commercialized platform that will serve Kinettix as their first client. Bringing Clay to our team is a critical step in the journey of building a platform that is able to manage transactions in over 120 countries and service substantial variation of cost models for clients or end clients. It's an enterprise-level platform that manages dispatch, projects, vendor management, payment, API integrations and more."
Prior to coming to Kinettix, Martin was CTO at Adaptive technologies, an ALM (Application Lifecycle Management) consultant for Novus Solutions, and VP of Internet Solutions for Globalair.com. He has a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Georgetown College and an MBA from University of Phoenix.
The addition of Martin to Kinettix’s team represents a major recruitment for the company as it continues breaking ground as an industry leader. His experience systematizing and optimizing the development process positions Kinettix to have the internal resources required to launch, maintain, and enhance the Dispatch1 software platform.
