Product portfolio manager at Spartez. Powered by family & friends, theatre, British comedy, and swimming. An avid reader. Currently consuming content on linguistics and history. Previously leading the international roll-out of an edtech company, shaping both development and consulting sales/marketing teams in 100+ projects for 40 markets. Now tuned in to Atlassian JIRA users, matching their pains and gains with Spartez agile and Atlassian know-how. Software is her second love, so helping it thrive internationally is just it.
Co-Founder & Non-managing Partner. Used to be a CEO. Got bored of it. Now taking care of product development. Occasionally trains people in agile methodologies.
Maciek was responsible for designing, development, and maintaining web applications at Wirtualna Polska for 4 years. He believes that building software is an art of choosing tradeoffs. It is important to find the balance between short-term and long-term perspectives.
Slayer of the Dragons, defender of JIRA, and secret agent of Design department. Usually can be seen in the office with a bunch of colourful post-it notes, sharpies, scissors, and a strange smile on his face, so be warned. He's User Experience practitioner and has been working in digital business for eight years. His motto is: Think Outside the Box, but Don't Forget the Box Exists. Probably, that's why he keeps asking two questions in the first place: why and what's the context.
Co-Founder & Managing Partner. Spartez CEO. Focused on the growth of the business, the culture, and the values. The main person visible outside of the company (at numerous conferences and events), where he shares his experience, the vision, and quite controversial opinions on our industry. Sometimes he is still able to find time to run a deep development or admin training about Atlassian tools. Codes practically only at home and at night.
Passionate about testing, which means asking the hard questions. What do you need? Why do you need it? How will you know it is what you need? What do you expect to gain from it? Prepare answers, he will ask them. Interested in Software Development, as it's considered a great source of issues. Not only issues with the software itself, but product ideas, development methodologies, techniques, processes and practices. Where everything, every decision you make, depends on the underlying context. Once the issue is challenging enough, he will spend days understanding its root cause, its impact, and potential solutions, hopefully addressing the source.
