Team

As you know, it’s not easy to find dependable co-founders. Most of the time it’s the guy or the gal next door looking pretty much like you. When co-founders lack complementary skills, you are headed for disaster.

We cannot say that we were lucky. It took a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get this far, but we finally made it. Right now, we have one of the best teams out there!

Our formula is simple: “idea + business makes the company” or if you prefer the more popular way of saying it, “we can execute the s**t out of our idea.”

By the way, did we say that we were trained by the best?

Erol may be the most experienced computer scientist when it comes to dealing with product development or process improvement issues around here. While being the oldest guy in the team, he is also the most agile. Aylin has worked in one of the most turbulent and successful startups in Europe (Markafoni) and she doesn’t have any scars. We’re still waiting, but nobody can come up with a marketing challenge she cannot handle. Don’t let the appearances fool you. Derya isn’t just a pretty face. She is an engineer who has pursued a career in business development. If you come across her in a business negotiation, you’ll be on the losing end, that’s for sure!
