Every idea needs people who implement it into a product. Our dev-team masters this with bravery and they arrange for apps which functionate, have a great design and are easy to operate.

Andreas Leicher

CTO / Mastermind

Our mastermind will crack all codes, that's the reason why the DevOps-specialist leads the development of our apps, makes all the things which have to do with the API and in addition to this, he is leader at the ostfalia school for internet application development. You can see him at the Rhein-MAin-Meetups of the developer-scene or otherwise on his mountainbike at downhill and on the snowboard.

Marcel Flick

ios / The Joker

The joker plays since 27 years to win. Camouflaged with a cap as iOS-developer, he already booked some wins: studies in media informatics at UCB and bachelor of science. But he's also winning in sports: against the mountains on his snowboard and the mountainbike, and when he's playing tabletop soccer the ball always rolls away from his door. So it is sure: when you have him in your team, you've better cards.

Johannes Kempf

He is the captain of the design-squad. From scribbles with pen and paper through prototypes and finally the visual design, he is searching for a simple and beautiful solution all the day. He also acts with Bastian in the cooperative story for high engagement with Gamification. He is the one who fights for the users advantages and feelings. Otherwise he looks forward for new quests and has a lot of tools in his inventory to solve mysteries.

Sandeep Sadanandan

No matter how much work comes up to him, he performs every duty, eliminates every problem, and programs everything with a smile on his face. Our System Architect, who supports the backend of the apps, likes to immerse in other, faraway galaxies and loves to have a vulcan mind. BUt he comes very close to it, as he speaks five languages and finds fun in mathematics and logic.

Moritz Moldenhauer

Android / The Mountainking

He doesn't only rule the mountains with his mountainbike, but also the development in android, therefore he combines the extzremes of sports and IT in one person. He conquered not only the mountain "IT-education" but also the peak "computer science studies" with success. He conquered his throne at MapCase because he believes in the product and the team and he wants to add to the story of success.

Isabell Meister

Illustration / Pictionary

In the young age of 22 years, the skilled graphic designer and student in media design, holds up the rate of women in the development-team and she brings some colour in it, because of her painted nails. If she's not occupied with vector graphics or badgets, she swings with the wooden spoon in her hand or she relaxes with a good book.

Business

When the product is ready, it has to be brought to the man or the woman. That’s the job of our business team which takes care of our users and our partners and which pulls the strings in the background.

Christoph Schapes
