San Francisco, CA (PRUnderground) June 9th, 2015
Doublie, home of a popular iPhone app that allows users to remix images and create their own memes on the go, today announced the hiring of iOS software engineer Francesco Georg, who previously worked on Toby, a launch day virtual pet app for the Apple Watch.
Georg graduated from Stanford University in 2012, but he spent two years as a software development intern at Inventables and Smule from 2009 to 2011. That experience helped him secure a post-graduate position as a front-end iOS games developer at Wooga, a Berlin, Germany-based publisher that released Toby for iPhone and Apple Watch. Georg will relocate to San Francisco to work at Doublie.
“Despite his relatively young age, Francesco Georg brings a wealth of valuable experience to our development team,” said Doublie CEO Shane Walker.
“I’m excited to join Doublie and contribute to the next era of mobile content creation,” said Francesco Georg.
Doublie leads the way in mobile remixing of social media while on the go. The company recently released a report covering the top NBA playoff memes, along with a deeper analysis of the 17 most popular ones. The company also published a round-up of the best memes about Caitlyn Jenner.
Doublie has raised $1.7 million from early investors in YouTube, Uber, Facebook, and Twitter. Francesco is Doublie’s fourth team member from Stanford University, joining three of its four founders.

Doublie is the remix layer for mobile, building a single platform to create, edit, and remix media on the go. The company currently offers an iPhone app, with an Android version planned for release later in 2015.
Doublie seeks to formalize research into Internet era memes and quantify them by popularity, based on numbers of unique storylines and remixes, so journalists and other interested parties may draw conclusions for their own use.
