Tapjoy, Inc., a mobile advertising and publishing platform, on Monday announced a transaction which includes the addition of the core team from Viximo, a Cambridge-based provider of cross-platform distribution for social games and apps.
The Viximo team will provide the basis for a Tapjoy studio in Boston, enabling the San Francisco-based Tapjoy to expand its product offerings and services. Tapjoy’s new Boston location will become a focal point for developer relations and advertising sales in the Northeast.
‘‘Becoming part of the Tapjoy team presents us with an incredible opportunity to accelerate our evolution from social into mobile,’’ Sean Lindsay, the former CTO and cofounder for Viximo and new VP, engineering for Tapjoy said in a release. ‘‘We believe our team can deliver technology that will provide great social experiences for both Tapjoy’s developer and consumer communities.’’
The companies did not release the terms of the transaction.
