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.
Louisa runs the breadth of our marketing.
From communications to events, from the blog to #ChargePodcast, she does it all. 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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Alex is your friendly neighbourhood backend developer.
He supports a large number of projects at DVELP. Whenever you need an extra pair of hands, Alex is your man. Because he helps out with many different projects, he has a broad range of skills. However, his top skill is being a great communicator. He likes talking to clients directly, identifying their problems and finding the solution together, whilst also upskilling them in technical understanding. Alex is both a software engineer at work and a mechanical engineer in his free time! His car is a custom build, which he is perpetually improving in both comfort and performance. It’s much the same for him with coding: he’ll always be on the lookout for a way to improve.
Mary considers software development to be a form of craftsmanship.
Working at the backend, she is a creative problem-solver who would tell you that development “is not about typing, but about thinking”. She even runs her own blog where she shares her development philosophy. Mary is brilliantly tenacious: when she encounters a problem, she will not stop before she solves it. Her flair for innovative solutions paired with her determined attitude make her a true asset to our team at DVELP. To support her growth as a software craftswoman, Mary keeps her creative juices flowing in her free time with origami and cookery!
