With his sights firmly set on his goal, he has staying power and a lot of patience, just as he does when jogging, sailing or rowing in his free time.

Andrii Fedorchenko

Frontend development

Deviation from the standard in the most positive sense - that is Andrii's task in frontend development. He programmes his unusual solutions with React Native or Vue.js and ensures in quality management that no bugs have crept in.
He recovers from the working day with music on his ears and a visit to the gym. At the top of his bucket list is the dream of owning his own country house. Preferably close to the forest, because if Andrii were a plant, it would be a mighty old Sequoia.

Arian Juwig

Backend development

Few bugs, lots of independent development, a cup of tea and delicious food - that's all it takes and Arian's working day is perfect. He uses PhpStorm and Chrome to complete his tasks at Blackbit and also programmes in his free time. Because ambition knows no end of the day.

His perfect Sunday at least provides a contrast: Arian can wind down by reading and going for a walk, and a round of gaming is also allowed. Our insider tip if you want to make him happy: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are one of his few weaknesses.

And because everything is permitted in war and love, she mercilessly draws out the red pencil in the fight against oblique formulations, crooked metaphors and limp comparisons. She knows exactly the difference between a mother raven and a mother crow.

To find a balance to her sedentary office life, she goes up high. Because on weekends she likes to go on big tours in the Harz mountains. What she hasn't seen on her excursions, she then simply adds at home. The loving cat mummy not only likes to illustrate analogue pictures, but also uses her iPad to make all kinds of animals appear in her photos of excursions. There are no unicorns in the Harz mountains, my ass!

Nadine Bachert-Brückner

Administration / Fin. Accounting

+49 551 506 75-10

Nadine has always been good at remembering numbers and is simply great at dealing with them. That's why she handles all the processes that are part of the company's planning, control, documentation and cost accounting. In this way, she arrives at the overall result and can document the asset situation as well as changes in the inventory - in other words, she determines what remains on the bottom line.

In her private life, however, she likes to turn her back on the realm of numbers and reset her computer in the fresh air - by bike or on foot and with pleasure with her family and dog.

Nadine Bisikati

Only in her free time, when she meets up with friends to cook or marvels at the world while travelling, does she sometimes get quiet.

His overview, combined with his communication skills, makes him the ideal link between Germany and Ukraine.

One customer, one solution. Sören finds and develops it, always tailored to the customer and his needs. To do this, he analyses the technical requirements, models the solution and implements it. In this way, he is always learning something new. No wonder, because in his private life he also likes to expand his horizons, try out new things, is madly in love with detail and defends his opinions passionately.
