Why did we start PieSync?
We started PieSync because we love to code. We really want to create useful applications using the technologies we like. Applications that solve our own problems with the possibility to also help out thousands of others.
What does PieSync mean?
We wanted a name that resembles how we look at work and life in general: linking serious challenges with rather lighthearted fun. We initially wanted to name our company SyncDuck, but that domain name was already taken. After some more iterations we settled for PieSync and never looked back.
Synchronizing the Internet – Piece by Piece
Lead developer and lead architect
The man behind the original idea. He started working on it in the summer of 2011. He is the biggest nerd at PieSync and defaults his answers with 'just check the source code'.
Mattias loves rethinking algorithms, making them even more generic and reusable. He can create the most majestic pieces of software writing code nobody could ever understand.
In his spare time Mattias likes to read up on the newest web frameworks and experiment with ruby libraries. He really wants to make a push towards making memorable open-source libraries.
Feature architect, finances and support
Ewout is straight-forward and direct. He makes sure we keep moving forward and stops us from rewriting the same codebase for the fifth time or lose a day restyling 5 pixels.
Ewout loves organizing events and camps. If it wasn't for programming, he would definitely be organizing festivals or other big-scale events. He is also a freelance Android consultant.
Front-end dev, webdesign and marketing
Simon also loves to tinker about new ways of improving customer conversion or retention, analytics, SEO and running A/B tests for website optimization.
After hours Simon scours Dribbble or reads up on HackerNews. You can also spot him on the squash court or playing minifootball (indoor soccer).
