Co-Founder, Managing Director
Having been there from the beginning, Sava has both the history and the future firmly in his sights. In 1999 he left his journalism career to lead the development of digital technology solutions for news media at Media Development Loan Fund’s Center for Advanced Media-Prague (CAMP). In 2010 he oversaw its spin-off as Sourcefabric. Hailing from Belgrade (a Partizan fan if you’re interested), Sava picked up a few languages (and his passion for Rio’s Vasco da Gama) as he moved around the world. He practices yoga and enjoys playing basketball and four-stringed musical instruments.
One of the founders of Sourcefabric, Douglas is an American expatriate who has lived in the Czech Republic since 1992 (though he claims Dakar has the best music anywhere in the world and Cape Town the best scenery). Previous roles have included new media consultant for the Media Development Loan Fund, special projects director at Contactel (a subsidiary of TeleDanmark), and co-founder of First Tuesday Praha, an organisation devoted to helping internet start-ups. Doug is a member of the board of the Prague Civil Society Centre, a nonprofit promoting civil society in Eastern Europe, Russia and Central Asia. He's also a DJ on Prague's Radio 1 on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.
Micz Flor is a entrepreneur, media developer and project manager based in Berlin. Since 1995 he has been at the heart of innovation on the web, running a variety of events, social technology companies, agencies and media houses. In 2000 Micz began work as a media developer for Eastern Europe and Asia at the Media Development Loan Fund (MDLF), where he met his fellow Sourcefabric co-founders. Sourcefabric is now Europe's largest open source organisation providing software, support and consultation for independent media.
Chief Technology Officer
Holman has been using Linux since the very beginning of his programming days, playing with all sorts of GNU tools and the kernel itself. He started working as a volunteer for the Free Software Foundation (as code reviewer, programmer, translator) where he learned Scheme, Guile and of course the ubiquitous C. He is also a self-proclaimed "Emacsniac” (takes one to know one), but we know him by his other name, Ironman. Holman is an endurance athlete and will out-stamina any of us. It’s just as well that he likes reading and watching movies because then we don’t feel quite so bad.
Head of Design
Vladimir takes the raw functionality of our products and turns them into something users enjoy working with. He's also the visionary behind the look and feel of our branding. He has more than a decade of graphic and web design experience, but it's not what he expected to do. As a little kid he wanted to be a garbage man — he says it has something to do with the orange vests. His interest in and love for comic book design and Blade Runner have probably influenced his approach as well: clear, communicative design with just a hint of the future to get you excited about coming to work.
Head of Marketing
Manolis did his undergraduate studies in marketing and management in Athens followed by a Masters in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy in London. He loves problem solving, creative thinking, innovation, music and cooking, to mention a few. Over the past few years his focus has been on marketing strategies and creative strategies for small businesses and start-ups. In 2012 he launched BrokeinLondon.com, a survival guide for Londoners living on a budget. At Sourcefabric, Manolis is helping to increase brand awareness for Sourcefabric's software and bringing quality leads to the business development team.
Head of Support and Documentation
Josh grew up in rural Illinois and studied Marketing at Northern Illinois University. Before getting married and moving to Canada, he used to work for a pharmaceutical distributor. He is based in Sourcefabric's Toronto office with the Airtime core team. His talent in sales and communication means he is ideal for not only spreading Sourcefabric's mission in Canada and USA, but also for supporting our growing communities.
Business Development Manager
Before joining Sourcefabric, Renat served in several roles in the media industry. He has strong entrepreneurial, online publishing and social media backgrounds, which help him in his current role at Sourcefabric. He is equally passionate about tennis and learning foreign languages, but has been more successful in the latter.
As the former head of the online services department in ČTK (Czech news agency), out of the box Karel brings news-agency product development experience and knowledge of how business gets done in that particular industry. His primary overarching focus at Sourcefabric is on Superdesk-based products. He speaks Czech and English and says his Russian is rusty, but he can understand the gist of what is being said. In his free time he tries to get his body moving by switching between aikido, beach volleyball, squash, or running and biking.
Based in Serbia, Ana has been working for Sourcefabric since its foundation as an implementer on diverse, international projects. Graphic and web design skills gained her a degree in archaeology and her passion became her profession. When she is not working, she plays music at Sourcefabric FM radio, goes scuba diving and hiking.
Airtime Pro Product Manager
Aleksandar, “Braja”, is Sourcefabric's first SaaS manager. He brings a large skill set to Sourcefabric through his experience as a co-founder of Transitions Online, an external lecturer at Prague college and most recently his work as the team lead of onsite marketing operations, loyalty marketing operations, and finally e-mail marketing operations at eBay. He has been drawn to Sourcefabric since their paths first crossed in the late 1990s (Sourcefabric was called CAMP at the time). He has a son, plays guitar (even records a few songs here and there) and enjoys shooting hoops with friends.
Publishing Team Leader
Paweł describes himself as an 'open source guy'. He is a PHP developer with a strong JS background (especially with HTML5 games). He is also a very active in the Symfony2 community. He was a member of a local news site from 2005, which he continues - but now using Newscoop as a base. More recently he worked with an e-commerce startup. After, he created his own startup (Fly With Monkey), which was an HTML5 game. He was drawn to Sourcefabric because of his journalistic background and is now developing Newscoop, the open source CMS for better online publications.
Sourcefabric snatched Iva from the corporate telco world. She is responsible for all the support and guidance we need to do our jobs most effectively. Iva is also involved in accounting, office management and the mammoth task of connecting our branches in Prague, Berlin and Toronto (and our satellites in Warsaw, Minsk, Cluj and Belgrade) into one living organism. She makes it look easy.
With degrees in Business Administration, Travel & Tourism Management, Pavla has been working with Sourcefabric since the very beginning. She is our internal travel agent who takes care of all Sourcefabric's travels and everything related to it. She organises every year's Sourcecamp event. Pavla enjoys travelling, hiking and yoga.
Head of Media Development
Since 2006, Julia has been busy with international projects related to youth, freedom of speech, media and do-it-yourself culture in the NGO sector. As the Berlin office Operations Manager, she is dedicated to making sure that every day runs smoothly and that life is pleasant at the Berlin office. Julia is passionate about open source ideas, collaborative working methods, grassroots community building and new media.

Initially moving to the German capital in order to study the pitfalls of capitalism, Tom has joined our Berlin Team as our marketing assistant. Outside of the office Tom likes to work on his commercial photography business, and to practise chord-theory on his guitar. At Sourcefabric he supplies the marketing team with all the information they need to spread the word about Sourcefabric’s products.
As a child, Tomasz wanted to become a rock star but that didn't happen, so he decided to study computer science. Sourcefabric is very proud to have such a talented developer in its team. Tomasz also organises barcamps, open coffee meetings and hackdays - a yearly new media festival. He is a sound engineer at Students Radio Żak and still plays the bass as a hobby.
One of our many truly-converted developers (with many more to come), Petr was responsible for Debian projects during 2010’s Google Summer of Code. He is now a true believer of an even more powerful system that he helps to develop - Superdesk. An avid fan of football and jazz, Petr joined Sourcefabric in October 2010 just in time to make it to Sourcecamp, where we learned he is one of the developers who undertalk yet overdeliver which makes him the perfect candidate to work on our secret projects.
I'm from a little town in Spain and I currently live in Santiago de Compostela (also Spain), right where the famous El Camino ends. I lived and worked for a year in the U.S and had great experiences there. My passion right now is building open-source software, and that's why I came to Sourcefabric, but I also enjoy programming on my free time. I also like to solve Rubik's cubes very fast, I have about 60 of them. More recently I became a fan of electric skateboarding and I really enjoy going around town very fast on my electric skateboard while everyone thinks I'm a weirdo. I've been watching soccer since I was a child, I'm a supporter of Real Madrid and Arsenal.
Tomas is an ambitious and fatigueless front-end developer who is always up for a challenge to push his skills to the limits and make things better. He's been doing software development for over five years and is happy to share his expertise to make Superdesk even better. When it's time to relax Tomas enjoys traveling, learning new things, reading on personal development, science and philosophy.
Working with Superdesk as a front-end developer, Nemanja brings his skills from his previous position with a Swiss IT company that makes websites for the Swiss market and a degree in Information Technology. In addition to this he has also spent a bit of time working as a freelance developer. When Nemanja was a child his greatest love was his LEGO blocks set. He loved to play with them so much that sometimes he did not have time to eat! When he was 10 he began to take an interest in computers and always wondered what it was that started them. He is an impassioned skier, photographer, and traveller and likes animals, especially dogs. Nemanja’s favorite thing is his motorcycle.

He truly believes that passion is the most important ingredient in achieving your goals. He also believes that anybody can make a difference whether it be in a company, a country or the world.

Jérôme has been a Free Software lover and developer for a longtime. After having worked on different projects and lived in different places, life brought him to Prague. With a strong interest in Free software, he naturally found Sourcefabric, where he is now working as a Python developer for Superdesk. Jérôme also works in his spare time on an ethical communication tool based on XMPP. He has also travelled a bit, doing a "hippie style" trip around Australia in a 25 years old Campervan.
My first encounter with Sourcefabric was in 2014 when I visited their office in Prague. From then on I worked with the Superdesk team day in and day out to deliver the first production release of Superdesk for Australian Associated Press. Before joining AAP, I worked in finance and advertising. My way parted from AAP after almost 7 years in 2016 but I wanted to continue contributing to Superdesk and here I am. In my spare time first thing comes to my mind would be to go down to beach in summer or go for a hike in Australian bush in winter.
