Zouhair is a serial entrepreneur with an academic past and an infectious success drive.
For his EE PhD, Zouhair researched novel video coding algorithms that reduce compression computations by 90% on mobile devices.
He went on to build an online retail company (enamora.com) and brought it to several million in revenue before the exit. Aside from success, he also took away expertise on women's underwear, so ask for fashion advice.
At Keepsafe, Zouhair contributes code, image processing expertise and thought leadership in the privacy space.
“I'd rather be surfing” is his preferred motto but you'll find him at the office more often than at the beach. Zouhair drinks Beck's but other beers will also do.
Philipp competes to win — in Sailing and in Startups and came to the Bay Area to compete in the world's best environment for both.
Descending from a family of entrepreneurs, Philipp has been working on startups ever since graduating in Computer Science. His academic research was in graph visualization algorithms to make data useful.
After that he started ViCommerce (vicommerce.com) a company building video players that allowed people to click and buy items in a video. Luckily he never had to use any of Zouhair's codecs.
At Keepsafe he spends most of his time in the Android code base. Philipp ships code like a machine but if you're looking for a way to distract him from software, just ask about Sailing. He'll talk your ear off. Philipp is Bavarian, drinks beer and has never missed a day of Oktoberfest in his life.
Jeff is the ever sought-after unicorn designer with a skill-set ranging from ideation to software implementation.
He is a graduate of Stanford's Design program and previously has done work for Google, Dropbox, YouTube and many other Silicon Valley startups.

If you ask nicely, he'll draw you a robot.

Mike is a swim in the middle of the river type of guy.
After graduating from UC Berkeley, Mike was real excited to move to Jacksonville, Florida, the city he ranked the lowest in placement preferences during his TLP program. His $500 a month 2bd/2ba apartment could only lure him for so long, before he came crawling back to the Bay Area. On his way back, he managed to survive a cross-country road trip in a BMW, with only three speeding tickets.
On weekends, Mike likes to play basketball, watch action movies where Brad Pitt punches people in the face, and venture outside the city. He especially enjoys hitting up Tahoe in the winter as he loves winter sports, as long as it’s snowboarding. Skiing has too many moving parts, and he was scarred by cross country as a child.
Knows all the hidden hiking trails with no names.
Tim found himself working at Muir Woods National Park as a Park Ranger fresh out of High School. For two years he gave tours, carried a life-saving radio and experienced all of North Bay’s hiking hidden gems. After a few years Tim realized being a Park Ranger was his ideal job. For retirement. He packed up his bags and exchanged the redwoods for city dwelling where he’s resided for the better part of ten years and counting.
Tim learned the ins and outs of app store optimization and product growth while working for several startups. A recent stint took him abroad to Taiwan where his hobbies had been limited to Friday night KTV. Now that he’s back stateside he’s excited to get back to his favorite pastimes of rock climbing, BBQing, road biking and collecting hot sauces.
Lukasz has been a passionate developer since his youth.
Lukasz became interested in computers in high school. Soon he switched from gaming to programming by participating in algorithmic contests.
Now as a software engineer he has an eye for performance. He likes to make code just as fast as he drives his motorbike. He is interested in the intersection of computer science and cognitive science.
More hacker than painter... but still.
Lukasz tinkered intensely with computers early in his life which led him to software engineering. He believes that engineering can be reconciled with art, resulting in beautiful and simple solutions.
While away from keyboard he reads, learns to play classical guitar and backpacks through bizarre destinations.
Tomasz was born in Cracow, Poland, where he lives to this day and doesn't intend to ever move.
Tomasz is Android developer with over five years of experience. His adventures with computers started 25 years ago, when he first used Windows 3.11 and played DOS games at his mother's university job. After that, his life was all about computers. He began his official career after college as a Java developer. Following five years of building big enterprise systems, he decided to become Android developer. He's very invested in the UI and UX of apps he creates.
In his free time Tomasz loves to play video games, ride and repair classic cars, trek and rock climb. He also enjoys building electronics, playing with Legos, and caring for his animals: two cats, a green tree python and his marine aquarium. He likes to expand his knowledge about the world, especially physics and mechanical engineering.
Engin is an iOS dev who'll start selling used cars if this tech thing turns out to be a fad.
Originally from Istanbul, Engin has been putting down roots in Berlin for over a decade. Engin was once a budding academic working on multi-camera video compression, until Steve Jobs made him drop out of his PhD program with the launch of the App Store.
Engin built the first translator app for iOS in 2008 and was sucked in deeper and deeper into the app developer craze. He even flew to NYC for a weekend to pick up the original iPad on day one so he could test his PDF annotation tool on real hardware. Today he organizes UIKonf, the second largest iOS developer conference in the world after WWDC.
When he’s not building Keepsafe’s European presence or tinkering on apps, he flies gliders near Berlin and fixes old cars. One day he’ll have enough saved up for his dream Porsche.
