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.
Co-Founder and Managing Director Booktype GmbH
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.
Chief Operating Officer
Boba is based in Prague but she has lived in several European countries. She is married and proud of her two grown up kids Anna and Vladimir. She enjoys spending her free time doing Pilates, travelling and meeting her friends who are scattered all over the world.
Head of Client Projects
Gideon spends most of his time at Sourcefabric meeting with developers and clients alike. He is the glue keeping things together between these two important sides of software development as well as the communicative oil that keeps everyone on track at Sourcefabric. When he's not doing this, he's pounding the roads in training for his latest marathon.
Head of Strategic Partnerships
Veronika has worked in assisting organisations all over the world, however, her favourite place is still Tibet. She was astounded by its rough beauty and felt very connected to the spirituality and kindness of the people. She was saddened to see its culture slowly shrink under the power of the Chinese. She remains passionate about the ways in which open source can impact human rights and democracy and believes the Internet as a vital point of opening up and maintaining basic human rights.
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 Communications
Anna used to wear two different hats: one was software and the other was journalism. Now at Sourcefabric she gets to wear one big hat that combines the two. As our journalist in residence, she finds stories from within Sourcefabric and communicates them to the outside world through our blog, website and social media channels. Anna loves to travel, and has lived in a number of places including New Delhi, New York and Oslo, but Turkey is her favourite place to visit.
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.
Head of Systems
Samuel has been working as a sysadmin since his first job at the largest university in his country. Based in Paraguay, Samuel is responsible for maximizing the uptime of our services and improving performance. He's a GNU/Linux advocate and he's been involved in a variety of projects ranging from consulting for businesses to large virtualization/storage/network deployments. Samuel also likes volunteering at Sugar Labs, a non-profit led by volunteers, as a core sysadmin. Sugar Labs provides an educational software platform based on the principles of cognitive and social constructivism used in the XO laptops developed by One Laptop per Child (OLPC). When he's not in front of the computer, he's spending time with his family and friends. He also likes to play soccer, ping pong, PlayStation, read books and watch movies.
Andrey has had a varied and illustrious career working in almost every sector, from banks to internet providers and beyond. Based in Minsk, Andrey is from Belarus and has been into Linux since 1997. A wannabe fighter pilot, Andrey spends his time with Sourcefabric ensuring that our flight goes smoothly, concerning himself with everything from security to community tools and email accounts.
Marko is a person with many hobbies but focuses on his profession as a new member of system administration team at Sourcefabric. He has been spending time with GNU/Linux systems for over a decade and a half and likes doing it. When he was younger he travelled on tours with a folk dance group from his town (playing guitar in the band) and experienced different cultures and met people from many parts of the world, which he still cherishes. He enjoys spending free time with his friends and family, likes reading, movies and listening to music.
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.
Vince is a production-side press journalist who switched to online news in the mid-1990s. He's worked in online and converged newsrooms ever since (apart from one project to develop 3D animation software) and has combined his editorial roles with working on CMS design and implementation. Vince likes things to be free, whether free as in 'free beer', or free as in 'no restrictions, jump right in and make it yours'.
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.
Managing Director, Booktype GmbH
Julian grew up in Rome and Bonn. He studied Philosophy and Cultural Sciences in Munich and Bremen and has been living in Berlin since 1998. He has had the pleasure of working in Berlin's creative and media scene as well as at Gestalten Publishers for several years. Outside of the office he's a fan of good books and good food.
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.

That took her to interesting and challenging places around the world like Sri Lanka, Pakistan, South Sudan and Somalia. She returned to Berlin in 2013 to have her daughter. As interim Operations Manager for our Berlin Office, Steph is in charge of making it a happy place to work while Julia is on leave. She loves making music and is a fan of sensible but pretty shoes.
Documentation and Localisation
If there's a person who truly understands Sourcefabric products and knows what every radio button does, it’s Daniel James. Responsible for writing manuals and reaching out to the localisation community, Daniel is also the director of 64 Studio Ltd, a company developing custom GNU/Linux multimedia products for OEMs. He was the founder and original director of the linuxaudio.org consortium and formerly worked on LinuxUser & Developer magazine, serving as Editor until early 2007.

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.
In a world driven by the never ending search for new projects, Mugur proves that a man can spend a decade on one. He is the Batman of Newscoop. Like any truly great developer, he stays in the shadows at night and makes the magic happen so we can enjoy it by day. Were not sure if he ever takes time off, but if he did you might find him watching Seinfeld or Star Trek, or picking up his 5-year-old phone, having dropped it for the umpteenth time today, and wondering how it still works.
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.

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.

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.
Has a degree in graphic and web design (not just one), and a couple years experience as a full-time designer and web developer. His special fields of interest are the user interface and user experience design. When he's not busy designing websites, he's developing them. He loves nature and animals ... all kinds of animals (and that's a lot of animals).
Junior Front-End Developer
Oleg started learning programming in school. The first programming language he ever tried was C (thanks to his parents) after which he learned Pascal and Visual Basic in school. After school, he entered Kharkiv National University of Radioelectronics and received a degree in Programming Engineering. During his studies he began working as php/js/mysql developer after which he moved to python's world with django and twisted. He has so many hobbies that it's impossible to describe all of them! Throughout his life he has been riding bicycles in extreme directions. Last year he simply rode across the country of Ukraine. A big part of his life is motorcycles and one of his favourite things is to travel by motorcycle. He's crazy about playing ping pong (apparently every developer in Kharkiv plays ping pong). His newest hobby is Arduino, but for now it needs more time than he can give.
