Peter Sunde Kolmisoppi
Peter formed the basic idea for Flattr in 2006. Now he's going around the world to talk about why the internet should be treated as something important and not just an entertainment platform. He's a vegetarian and socialist, active within the discussions about copyright, animal rights and freedom of speech.
Joined Peter in 2009 and they managed to get the flattr beta up. He is a 30-something, Swedish internet guy. Designer of web, print, clothes. Creator of ideas. Photographer. Coder of web. Webshop merchant. Gamer. Was a DJ. Demoscener. Educated as media producer. Lives to better himself. Listens to electronic music. Dislikes copyright. Talks - a lot.
Eileen started working with the Flattr team in February 2010 and doesn't get to enjoy the fatboy office chair because she is based in the UK. Out of London, Eileen is also a co-founder of White Bear Yard, a hub for technology innovation and start-up teams.
Leif is our resident code ninja and the go-to-guy with questions regarding integration. An adventurer at heart, Leif is constantly struggling with his desire to escape the office in favor of the lush landscapes of the Caribbean, Africa or Indochina. He is passionate about the environment and animal rights.
Simon is the newest member of the team. Loves wasting time hacking away on some open source project and if you don't find him online he most definitely will be rock climbing and bouldering around the world.
Maria has the core function of the economics and administration in the team. She loves processes and organizational planning, almost as much as making graphs and overviews. If this is made out of a fast moving and chaotic melting pot, she certainly feels being in the right place.
