Haystack app creator Eric Meyer takes job at OrderUp

1/13/2015 Baltimore Business Journal

Baltimore's OrderUp has hired the creator of the controversial parking app Haystack to drum up excitement about new market launches for the online food ordering company.

Eric Meyer, a Canton resident, launched the Haystack app in May as a way to help people park in packed neighborhoods, but shut it down after backlash from cities including Boston and Philadelphia.

At OrderUp, Meyer will work as director of market launches. OrderUp is planning to launch its online food ordering and delivery business in dozens of new markets this year and Meyer will be in charge of making sure the launches go well.

"Eric has an immeasurable talent for creating enthusiasm and buzz during a market launch," Chris Jeffery, OrderUp co-founder and CEO said in a statement. "With him heading up OrderUp's corporate launches, we're trying new tactics to ensure that we have a big impact in our new markets."

OrderUp in January moved to a new, 14,000-square-foot office at the Can Company to accommodate the company's rapid growth. The company employs about 130 people, about 70 of whom work at the Baltimore headquarters.
