Our ‘Studio’


As founder and CEO, Tom is at the very heart of what DVELP is and does.

He considers himself a facilitator: he wants everybody in the company to feel empowered to do the things they need to. Tom is particularly skilful at helping people who come to him with problems: instead of solving them he gives them just the right nudge so they can solve it themselves. He’s immensely proud to have built a team aligned on goals, that transcends nationalities and borders. He has extremely high standards and implicitly trusts the people he works with: a combination that gives everyone at DVELP the opportunity to achieve incredible things.


Julia works at the frontend on her projects at DVELP.

She worked alongside our founder, Tom, before the birth of DVELP, so she’s been here for the entire journey and has seen us through every single project! Julia has the most amazing eye for detail; with a healthy obsession for clarity and perfection in code, she ensures our projects are consistently presented at an incredibly high standard, inside and out. Away from her computer, Julia is an animal lover, and a keen horserider.


Developer Ilya is obsessive about delivery.

He does whatever it takes to ensure our projects deliver on excellence and will put in the extra hours to make sure a project meets its deadline. He’s also particularly good at understanding the value of building products that fit into other commercial objectives. Ask him about remote working and he will tell you that he can work from absolutely anywhere … except home.


Data master Vitalii has an unparalleled aptitude for database structures.

He likes to visually map out how data will be stored on paper and envision fluent workflows before making it a reality with code. He’s particularly proud of how the team executed the Curador project and its beautifully clear database structure. Vitalii has an enthusiastic attitude when he works and he’s always happy to get on with the job in hand. He’s passionate in his career, and is always looking to improve himself and his skills.


Our marketing strategist Louisa is a content powerhouse.

She takes delight in sharing DVELP’s research and knowledge on our blog. Her favourite project at DVELP is our podcast, Charge, which she produces, co-hosts and edits. Louisa has an analytical mindset and is skilled at spotting trends. She has a real knack for seeing past the fluff and identifying the heart of the matter in hand.

Maria Christina

Maria Christina is truly the ‘MC’ of DVELP’s voice.

She supports and maintains our culture at DVELP in both her roles as marketer and people operations. She is the backbone of our #remotefirst community. She further brings that community feel to DVELP’s events, social outreach and as co-host of Charge podcast. A communicator to her core, MC can speak 5 languages: English, Italian, French, German and Spanish!


Egor is a Ruby guy and, in his own words, he solves business problems with code.

His eye for coding solutions has been refined through an incredible amount of experience: he started coding aged only 14. In his spare time these days, Egor gives talks to share his expertise. At DVELP he brings valuable insight and analysis to our projects. Interestingly, since he works remotely you’d never realise it, but he’s actually 6’9” (2.1m) tall!


Ilya has an enduring positive mentality which he brings to every project.

He is a full stack Ruby on Rails developer. In fact, at the beginning of his coding career, he took a course with Geekhub and narrowly missed achieving the diploma - today he teaches that course. His commitment is absolute and he's always researching the latest coding trends and adding to his skills. His life took a surprisingly different direction when he fell in love with coding, he was going to be a weightlifter - he could lift a 105kg deadlift when he was 12!


Nikita specialises in Twilio implementation.

He’s worked with all of their products: Programmable Voice, SMS, Task Router, Facebook integrations - you name it, he’s implemented it. However, Nikita’s a full-stack guy, meaning he’s also great with design. He was recently amongst the winners of an interface design competition run by Russian social media giant VK. The variety of Nikita’s skills spreads beyond the world of programming: in his free time he’s also a freestyle slalom skating champ!


Ross brings a ruthless focus to delivery at DVELP.

He finds it particularly satisfying when new projects are launched and deliver real change for DVELP partners. Ross has a background in project and product management. He has led the development of successful products in finance, gaming and health reaching millions of users and winning multiple Webby awards. In his free time he enjoys canoeing and barbecuing. In all seasons.


Front end superhero Kirill is brilliant with HTML and CSS.

Always keen to learn more, he’s currently improving his JavaScript and ReactJS skills. He also has a real sense for business strategy and this comes through in his code; it's always stellar. At DVELP, he loves working in an environment with such highly skilled programmers and learning from our pooled expertise. Kirill’s not just a natural at coding, however; he’s also a chess champion! He won the regional competition in his home city!


DVELP has an in-house evangelist: David!

He’s always on the lookout for opportunities to show people how great we are at what we do. He also hugely enjoys managing our relationships with our partners, including Twilio, Google Cloud and Looker. David’s a great listener - he is attentive to what our clients are saying and ensures that we deliver products they actually want. He truly understands the real business impact of the solutions we deliver. Because he knows we always deliver excellence, he is DVELP’s biggest fan!


Dziamid is totally brilliant with React, Redux and Typescript.

Whilst he works at the frontend, he is qualified as a full-stack developer. This means that he is fantastic at ensuring a seamless integration between both aspects of a project. At DVELP, his most proud achievement so far is a call center project on which he was the only frontend developer, working tirelessly to build the frontend from scratch and on time for a short deadline. On a Friday night, however, you will find Dziamid has traded in his laptop for a microphone at the local karaoke bar!


Quique is our lead front-end developer.

This means that he decides on which technologies are better suited for client needs. He has a curious mind and he’s always up to date on the latest technologies; he is the best person to consult on your project front-end requirements. Always happy to share, Quique takes pride in mentoring junior developers. Quique believes in being proud of everything he does: that means taking ownership of your tasks and always doing your best. Quique is the friendliest guy you'll ever meet; even goats love him.
