Driscoll joins Moltin co-founders Adam Sturrock, Chris Roach and Jamie Holdroyd. As developers, the founders recognized that ecommerce platforms, while optimized for traditional channels, often hinder a brand’s creative freedom due to the limitations of rigid templates, programming languages and steep learning curves. They built a microservices-based solution that provides organizations the ultimate flexibility to take an experience-first approach to commerce and gives developers the simplest, most powerful APIs available. Moltin has a rapidly growing community of more than 17,000 developers and is used to power some of the most distinctive commerce experiences in the retail industry.

“The future of commerce is where brand inspiration and consumer transactions meet. Moltin has cracked the code on a true, API-first solution that allows brand owners to dream of new experiences, and enables developers to build them quickly and easily embed them into any channel,” said Driscoll.

With Moltin, retailers can leverage best-of-breed content and design technologies to build emotive brand experiences. Also known as “headless commerce,” Moltin’s APIs connect all the components of a commerce system and enable retailers to deliver holistic experiences to consumers wherever they interact with the brand, including interactive digital displays, social media, smart television, video games or any other touchpoint. Moltin combines an extremely flexible set of APIs, developer toolkits and pre-built applications to make commerce development fast and easy.

Michael Skok, co-founder of Underscore VC, added, “We are entering a new era of commerce and you won’t even see it. It will be invisibly embedded into our daily lives, without technology obscuring the brand experience. It will be completely seamless and just an API call for the developer. It’s this level of transformation that Moltin enables. With Jamus at the helm and Adam, Chris and Jamie driving developer success and product roadmap, Moltin is well positioned to take advantage of this $4 trillion market opportunity.”

Moltin is headquartered in Boston, MA and has offices in Newcastle, UK.
