Watotolly kicks off summer by expanding team, moving to LA

As summer heats up, we are thrilled to announce three new strategic additions to our team: a product strategy / marketing ops intern, a legal advisor, and a design firm! These individuals reflect the culture and spirit of our business and will be crucial assets to our success as we continue to push forward on our journey to decrease the cost and complexity of childcare for hardworking families everywhere. Additionally, we will be moving our business from Philadelphia to Southern California as we focus on serving military families stationed at bases in LA and San Diego as well as millennial parents in the following Los Angeles neighborhoods:

  • Santa Monica
  • Woodland Hills
  • Culver City
  • Cheviot Hills
  • Baldwin Hills
  • Marina Del Rey
  • Manhattan Beach
  • Hermosa Beach
  • El Segundo
  • Venice Beach
To be clear, Watotolly will continue to serve families in the greater Philadelphia area who are interested in our software as a service; however, our strategic focus has shifted to Southern California. Meet the newest additions to the squad!
