Agnieszka Heidrich
FCB Global

Macoscope was an important partner in the development of "Remember", a software solution for Mac OS X and Windows systems that we commissioned. They contributed to the project extensively in the research and development phases, were transparent in their communication process, and managed to provide a handful of clever solutions that helped us out of tight spots. While other vendors tried persuading us that an app like this is basically impossible to develop, Macoscope stepped in and steered the project to completion and launch.

Bridget Goodbody
Art Intelligence

Let’s face it. iOS development is hard. It demands extraordinarily high levels of coordination, precision and teamwork. Macoscope delivers every step of the way. From planning to design support to execution to strategy, they never miss a beat. You couldn’t ask for a better team on a mobile project. I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

Peter Holm
OUTlife

We needed full-spectrum services in terms of mobile apps (both iOS and Android). Macoscope provided us with world-class designs, and a smooth development process. We couldn’t be more proud of the final product or more satisifed with the collaboration with the software house.

Ryan Janssen
Collectively

I’ve been an entrepreneur for 18 years and Macoscope is the finest I’ve ever worked with. They get mobile at every level: UX, design, and development. They played no small role in saving my business. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Waynn Lue
Coliloquy

Macoscope consists of really talented and committed engineers. I met them the team personally and was impressed by the way they think and work. In addition to delivering great code, they maintain a open and straight forward communication, something absolutely necessary, but too often missed.

Hashem Bajwa
DE-DE

Macoscope’s team are great to work with, they are responsive, accountable, organized and focused on successful outcomes and goals.

Radek Żabiński
Mind the Kids

In my work, I always try to surround myself with people who love what they do. I have found a team like that at Macoscope.

Akshay Rangnekar
Annkh

The biggest difference that comes from working with Macoscope is the level of insight and initiative that they bring to a project. They've worked with me each time to figure out the right way to meet my objectives. These guys are true partners in the build process, which is an extremely rare capability.

Jordan Stolper
StoryDesk

Thoughtful coders and impeccable communicators; Macoscope makes for an ideal development partner.

Paweł Jakub Dawidek
Wheel Systems

It was a real pleasure to work with Macoscope guys on an iOS project. They are team of professionals, they know the platform throughout and deliver high quality software on time.

Matt Pacyga
Canopy

From the first email introduction to meeting in person, Macoscope has talented people in business and software engineering. It's great to find a company that is refreshing from all departments, this is a company that I can recommend to my network.

James Musick
Social Pack

I've had a great experience working with Macoscope - they are attentive, on time, and create a quality product. They meshed well with our backend development team and our tools/processes - while adding good insight and value to the elements they contributed on.

Michael Sliwinski
Nozbe

Macoscope guys know their stuff. You turn to them with an iOS app concept and they'll simply make it happen. I've been working with them for several years now and they constantly keep on adding their expertise to improve the projects we're involved in.

Robert Spychala
Birdseye Mail

Macoscope is an amazingly talented group of iOS developers. Top notch.

PJ Tael
Uscreen

Great service & great team to work with.

We are a team

Our distinct skill sets complement each other and that’s why we’re able to quickly tackle any problem we encounter.

That’s how the magic happens.

Zbigniew

CEO

Zbigniew is a self-taught software developer-turned-entrepreneur. His first gigs for C programming came the age of 16. He started writing patches for the Linux kernel in 1998. Over the years, he has gained expertise in computer security, networking, voice over IP, telecommunications, mobile network operations, user experience, startups, and management.

He has consulted on management boards; hired, trained, and managed staff; coordinated multinational projects (30+ people); and designed and built hardware devices.

Zbigniew has founded three startups. The first failed, the second was sold to a public company, and the third (Macoscope) still thrives.

Daniel

Board Member

A natural-born inventor, Daniel is obsessed with improving things. He received an education in electronics and has been a dedicated follower of computers since the early C64 days.

He wears a thousand hats: he went through being early adopter of Ruby, a Java architect, a JavaScript monkey, to finally settle down (at least for now) in the realm of Objective-C.

He currently uses his MBA knowledge and years of UX experience to foster innovation and put a dent in the universe with Macoscope's products and services.

Developers, developers, developers!
- an unknown author from the company whose name starts with M.

Wojtek

Board Member

Wojtek is a cofounder of Macoscope and now serves the company as project lead and developer with over 15 years of IT experience in many different areas. He graduated from the University of Warsaw with a degree in computer science. A habitual troubleshooter, he is focused on creating products that make lives better.

When not sitting in front of his Mac, he spends time speeding around on his road bike. His other hobbies include all kinds of music and photography. He is also our resident crazy cat lady.

Close

Boomer

The Dog

The Chief Canine Officer here at the Macoscope offices. A mixture of only the best breeds, this dedicated cat problem solver was indispensable in establishing the company’s feline policy and is its chief enforcer. A veteran of the IT business, Boomer has over 18 months of experience with coders, designers, and executives. Loves trotting around the premises, getting behind-the-ear rubs, and chasing down every elusive bug (i.e. cat) that tries to introduce chaos into the ever-harmonious Macoscope realm.

Close

Karol

iOS Developer

Karol is a talented programmer, fluent in many languages. Interested primarily in artificial intelligence and game programming, he’s a very big fan of clean and readable code, even at the cost of slightly decreased performance.

In his spare time, he enjoys climbing and mountaineering.

Close

Dominik

Head of Design

Dominik is a user interface and user experience designer with a focus on Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, Mac). He is extremely well-versed in brand design, infographics, and book design. He has worked on over 70 projects for more than 60 clients.

He is fascinated by innovative designs that solve real-life problems, and thanks to his broad design experience, he is able to be both flexible and at ease with managing the design process. Interested in creativity theories. Focuses primarily on readability and employs aesthetics as an instrument of conveying the content as clearly as possible.

In his free time, Dominik maniacally speeds around the streets of Warsaw on his road bike.

Close

Jarek

Developer

Jarek is a creator. His creative endeavors mostly revolve around developing applications—from working with an idea to actually bringing it to life. He loves his work — whether it's digital or sticking together two seemingly different things to make something new, different, and useful.

As a kid, he wrote software in BASIC and Pascal. Started doing commercial work on Web technologies when he was still a freshman in high school. He has worked with .NET with companies like Novell and Microsoft. He finally switched to the light side of the force and now develops mostly in Objective-C, but he still has a soft spot for the Web. Holds a degree in computer graphics.

He loves music, whistles constantly, and even sings when no one’s watching. Fascinated by human nature and psychology, he also likes to write.

Close

Agata

Chief Wellbeing Officer

Agata is graced with the innate ability to manage both people and resources for maximum efficacy. Some people spend valuable time looking for perfect "team structure" or "process", whereas Agata instinctively intuited years ago that the secret to great teams is choosing people for their individual strengths. Using this approach, she managed time and time again to increase the quality of her teams' output by making everyone focus on what they do best.

She enjoys the challenge of analyzing the symptoms of an ailing project, identifying what is wrong, and finding the solution. She loves managing all of the variables and realigning them until she's sure to have arranged them properly. After all—there just might be a better way, right?

In her free time, she is totally head over heels with acroyoga practice.

Close

Rafał

iOS Developer

Affected by Apple's user experience, Rafał decided to become an iOS/OS X developer. He doesn't like having too much free time on his hands and is constantly looking for something productive to do. Passionate about everything related to programming, spends hours reading (Apple's) documentation. He remains convinced that code isn't just supposed to be a “working thing.” He’s deeply interested in broadly defined code architecture.

He enjoys sleeping and reading good books.

Close

Dawid

Graphic Designer

Dawid embodies mediocrity but he always tries very hard. A master of laconic descriptions and a fan of self-deprecating humor.

Close

Maciej

Objective-C Developer/Scrum Master

Maciej has been impressed by Apple’s efforts to think different since their very beginning. After years of developing for the web, he finally switched from merely using Apple devices to actually programming for them. A perfectionist, seeking every opportunity to improve code, can’t stand workarounds. Loves beautiful and clean code. Interested in robotics, often involved in efforts to infect younger generations with passion for the field.

When detached from his Mac, he goes paragliding for some fresh air.

Close

Klaudia

Office Manager

Klaudia is an incredibly energetic and open-minded person. She loves to help others and take up new challenges. At Macoscope, she is responsible for handling organizational matters and managing the office. Outside of work, her primary area of interest is fashion: she loves to sew and rework old clothes. In the future she would like to put all her energies into fashion design.

Close

Jan

Content Editor

A neurobiologist by education, a translator by trade, and a jack-of-all-tirades (that's not a typo). Finally making the switch to a G4 PowerBook in 2008, in circumstances not unlike the ones encountered by Ellen Feis, Janek committed himself to the Apple ecosystem and is now an out-and-proud evangelist of all things Cupertino with two successful conversions under his belt. After spending the better part of a decade in the realm of the written word, working for production conglomerates, publishing houses, movie festivals, and government institutions, he now plies his trade at the Macoscope HQ.

In his spare time, he enjoys vacuuming up as much text as possible. His goal in life is to know everything so that he can retire as a human encyclopedia and live next door to the Prada store in Marfa, TX.

Close

Arek

iOS Developer

Arek started programming for iOS devices after using Macs for a couple of years back in his days as a backend developer. Before joining Macoscope, he worked on his own app which was well-received by customers and tech publications alike and even ended up getting featured by Apple on the front page of the US App Store.

In his free time, Arek enjoys working on his open-source projects, reading about computer science and all things tech, and indoor cycling.

Close

Bartek

iOS and Swift Developer

Bartek began his adventures in coding after he purchased his first iPhone (the 3G) along with his first MacBook (the one with OG white plastic casing). Enthralled with the magic™ of the touchscreen emanating from his pocket, he experienced the irresistible desire to grace it with his own beautiful applications. A huge fan of Swift, he still keeps Objective-C very close to his heart. If you have a couple of hours to kill and want to discuss code, he's your man.

The fact that something is working is just not enough for Bartek, understanding "why" it works is paramount for him. Both his professional efforts and his personal life are governed by the "less is more" adage. He considers the process of designing APIs an attempt at ordering chaos. He spends his free time listening to podcasts on long walks and watching videos on YouTube's numerous education channels.

He believes air conditioning to be humanity's greatest invention.

Close

Piotr

Android Developer

An Android developer focused on the user. Believes that excellent UX should lay at the foundation of every application. Piotr considers Google's Material Design the best thing to grace the mobile app development world since sliced bread. Values clean, elegant code that doesn't require the developer to read through multiple comments in order to grasp its basics.

Piotr is a graduate of the Warsaw University of Technology with a major in telecommunications. Before joining Macoscope, he worked for Orange and pracuj.pl, a Polish job board.

In his free time, Piotr enjoys playing basketball, practicing the guitar, and cycling.

Close

Tomek

Android Developer

Advocate of the adage: “It’s about quality, not quantity.” Both his desk and his code are neat and orderly. Started working on his first dynamic websites back in junior high, studiously reading whatever PHP tutorials he could find. Grew enamored with Java and open source projects in college. After the release of Android, Tomasz fell in love with the possibilities of mobile apps and smartphone platforms.

Graduate of the Bialystok University of Technology. His professional experience includes freelance gigs, stints at startups, and a full-time position in Samsung’s R&D Institute Poland.

Veteran of the Scouting movement, where he served as an instructor. Loves to spend his free time outside city limits, likes to drive his car, tinker, and hang out with friends.

Close

Łukasz

iOS Developer

Relentlessly positive, always on the lookout for new things to learn. Over the course of 13 years spent in the IT industry, he dabbled in all aspects of mobile: Symbian, J2ME, Windows CE, Windows Phone, Android, and finally iOS.

Loves going low-level and is passionate about C++ and high-performance code. Interested in IT security and cryptography. Fell in love in with Swift after its release. Swift opened his eyes on Functional Programming and Haskell in particular, whose paradigms Łukasz strives to embed in every line of code he writes.

In his free time, he usually tinkers with physical simulation, AI, GPU Path Tracing, and other useless pieces of software. When not in front of a computer, he either goes running or plays one of the many musical instruments he own.

Close

Łukasz

UX/UI Designer

An architect and problem solver, passionate about user experience and minimalist aesthetics. First delved into the design world with the help of the rusty Photoshop 7.0 and it quickly evolved into a lifelong passion and a successful career. His area of expertise covers product design, interaction prototyping, project management, and more recently, motion design.

An analytic personality combined with excellent design intuition molded by years of experience allows him to effortlessly pick correct solutions. Likes to take point on and manage projects he works on. An exacting product owner, Łukasz never demands more from his team than he does from himself.

Loves all things manual, from fixing things to cooking, takes pleasure in long conversations over good Scotch. A huge e-sports fan.

Close

Krzysiek

iOS Developer

Krzysztof graduated the Warsaw University of Technology with a degree in computer science.

Although a huge fan of Apple, he can’t resist a fresh pear. Loves perfect, clean code. Works hard to make Agile his second name. He also tries to become more agile in general with the help of his reddish-pinkish mountain bike.

Close

Maciek

iOS Developer

Developing Flash games in junior high served as Maciek’s gateway into the world of development. Years later he graduated the Warsaw University of Technology with a computer engineering degree. Worked at all sorts of companies on a wide variety of projects, ranging from advert games, major startups, to enterprise apps. Now, he keeps falling in love with Swift at Macoscope.

In his spare time, he works on his indie game projects. He loves to run and enjoys various sports, with soccer being number one on the list. A table tennis pro.

Marta

Marketing Manager

Ten-year veteran of the IT business with a PhD in sociology. Specializes in e-marketing, developing new business projects, and community management.

Yoga and pilates teacher, currently retired. ;)

Przemek

iOS Developer

Started his career in mobile development back when he was still studying for his computer engineering degree. After a couple of months spent on Symbian projects, he delved into the world of iOS as a sort of afterthought. Before he even noticed, he was completely engrossed with it and quickly began to see world in square brackets.

Close

Zuza

Scrum Master

Wanted to become a Scrum Master ever since she can remember, even before she knew such a job existed. Studied mathematics and economy, eventually majoring in statistics (and graduating with an MA in Sociology). Her logical thinking and an empathetic approach to people allows her to tap into a variety of solutions unavailable to people with strictly technical backgrounds. What she loves most about being a Scrum Master is seeing the teams she looks after bloom. In her free time she collects cookbooks, plans her travel schedule months in advance, and watches YA-themed movies with her teenage sister.

Close

Oktawian

iOS, watchOS, tvOS Developer

Loves Swift so much he dreams about it almost every night. Graduated from the Wroclaw University of Technology with a M.Sc. in Computer Science. Has over four years of developing for iOS. Full stack Web developer in a previous life. Father of a wonderful son. Declared coffee addict. If not writing code, he’s probably reading a book. Great admirer of Alan Turing, Ivan E. Sutherland, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and−you guessed it−Steve Jobs. Little known fact about Oktawian: he is a member of a historical reenactment group that recreates the daily life of Hussites, a medieval Bohemian military movement. Yes, the reenactments include crazy sword fights.

Close

Michał

iOS Developer

Began his IT career by developing in C++ for the payments industry. He quickly moved on to Android and then to iOS. After a curious twist of fate put him at CERN for a year, where he helped make the motto “Accelerating Science” a reality by developing apps for the iPad, he found himself at Macoscope where the overall atmosphere and incredible food make him super happy. Currently develops only for Apple platforms, but he’s still interested in Android. Outside of work he’s interested in cars, guitars, drums, bicycling, and other ways of keeping himself fit.

Close

Łukasz

QA Specialist

Has over six years of experience with quality assurance services (in the games industry, in CRM, and now in mobile). Fervent soccer fan, PC and console gaming enthusiast. Dreams of producing his own AAA title. Loves post-game shows, despises airplanes. Often wastes time watching videos on the Internet, some of which, however, end up inspiring him in surprising ways. Works hard to expand his skillset. Loves QA because it allows him to master the implementation of a wide variety of solutions. Never shies away from a challenge. Crazy about electronic music in all its forms. Would love to have his own ranch one day.

Close

Adam

QA Specialist

Graduate of the Military University of Warsaw where he majored in telecommunications electronics. Started working as a software tester in the payments industry. Always looking for new challenges and opportunities, he joined the Macoscope team where he handles quality assurance for company products. Interested in programming, testing automation. Spends most of his free time with a guitar.

Close

Karolina

QA Specialist

A graduate of the computer graphics and game design program at the University of Łódź. A QA specialist at Macoscope with a very keen eye for detail. Making sure that the applications Macoscope releases are up to spec in all respects is her daily bread and butter−she’s a fan of top-notch graphics, movies, and applications (she abhors pixels, blurry pics, and glitchy apps). When not squashing bugs, she likes to create in Photoshop and Illustrator and take pictures. Loves cats and Spain−Gran Canaria is her second home, literally and figuratively.

Close

Mateusz

Backend developer

Started out in the IT industry as a network and systems administrator over 10 years ago, but the lack of proper tools quickly pushed him to programming. Simultaneously took up an interest in microcontrollers and electronics. Over time he became a full-blown Web app developer with a strong focus on backend and server solutions. A maker always tinkering with popular electronic platforms and the less obvious ones, like washing machines and refrigerators. An ardent fan of Elon Musk.

Close

Kasia

Marketing Support

If you ever face a “Catch-22” type of situation, Kasia should be the first person you contact, and although the solution she comes up may be weird, it will work like a charm. She is a blast to be around and her boundless optimism always makes her looks for the silver lining in even the most hopeless situations. An ardent follower of the “What’s this time free time you speak of?” philosophy, always on the lookout for new things to learn and discover. Loves sailing and never-ending conversations with inspiring people. Infinitely curious about the world.

Close

Darek

Android Developer

Started his journey way back in the early 1980s and his favorite year of that decade is 1989. Has been working in mobile for nearly a decade. Symbian was the gateway drug but it quickly gave way to Android and its ecosystem. Loves trying out bleeding-edge technologies and spending every spare hour on learning new stuff. Staunch believer in simple and readable code covered with a reasonable amount of tests. Happy husband and a father of two.

Close

Dorota

Product Owner

Before going to college she dropped everything and moved to London. Planned on becoming a sociologist but then accidentally found herself at an interview for a systems analyst position and got the job. Over the course of the 8 years she spent in the IT industry she has successfully delivered a number of important projects. Worked for multinational corporations and small startups. Appreciates good relationships with her teammates, working in well-knit teams, and strong coffee.

In her free time she loves to ride her bike, from time to time she manages to go sailing for a spell or go out to eat something good with a couple of friends.

Close

Marta

Marketing Manager

Started working in marketing when she was still in college. Originally studying to become a speech therapist, the allure of marketing was so strong that she quickly changed her plans. She has extensive experience in online marketing, community management, and offline event organization.

Her positive attitude and broad grin are infectious. Has been involved with the theatre for over half her life which makes her a great team player and an incredible listener. An ardent fan of the cinema, spends her free time all the movies she can get her hands on. Loves to dance, eat well, and travel.
