BoomNation Product Development Team Expansion

With its $5 million seed round now closed, BoomNation announces the expansion of its Product Development Team. BoomNation – the new mobile app community connecting tradespeople with employers who are looking for a better way to hire qualified skilled workers, share content and enhance project communications – welcomes two of the Founders of Waitr, the popular meal delivery app. Addison Killebrew and Manuel Rivero Ramirez are reuniting with fellow Waitr Founder and current BoomNation Chairman and Co-CEO Chris Meaux.

Killebrew is coming onboard as Chief Operating Officer, while Rivero Ramirez will oversee Architecture and Engineering as Chief Technology Officer. This experienced team is looking to combine their skills, once again, and repeat the scale and growth they have proven in the past.

“BoomNation fills a void for the skilled workforce that no one has been able to address before,” said Killebrew. “It’s exciting to be part of this new app community and have the opportunity to expand its functionality for the millions of tradespeople across the country.”

As part of that expansion, Killebrew says the company is adding an experienced team of software developers to elevate how the technology is mobilized within these industries.

Said Rivero Ramirez, “Being a part of building something that helps so many people is what I strive to do. That’s why BoomNation is so perfect. It bridges the gap between skilled workers and employers and opens the lines of communication, and that’s something we can really build upon.”

“Addison and Manuel were instrumental in helping me turn Waitr into the amazing app that it is, and I know their experience and knowledge will be just what we need to take BoomNation to the next level,” said Meaux.

Since its launch in November 2021, BoomNation has built a community of thousands of workers and employers using the app to share content, network and connect with jobs nationwide.

BoomNation utilizes its technology platform to modernize and optimize the workforce recruitment and project communications process between job seekers, hiring managers and project managers on job sites across the nation. It serves industries including construction, manufacturing, oil and gas, transportation and warehousing, utilities and more. Built exclusively for skilled workers like welders, electricians, operators, pipefitters and other tradespeople, workers can download the app and join the community with real-time content, networking and communications features, while also promoting their skills and craftsmanship and finding and applying for jobs. For employers, the app offers them qualified job applicants and will soon offer a searchable database of verified skills among workers to provide more efficient communication and interaction among workers and employers with just a few clicks.

The BoomNation app can be downloaded through the Apple and Google app stores. Workers and employers can also find content at or at
