We are reinventing professional collaboration by introducing a version control layer on top of office documents.
In short, we are building Github for Non-IT white collars.
While working as a research assistant at the German Bundestag, Michael noticed that collaboration on text documents in both the public sector 🏛 and the legal sector 👨🏽⚖️ is often consecutive. This entails not only many media disruptions but also a very high administrative effort 🤯. He described this problem to Sebastian and Johannes during a joint bike ride. Professionals in the IT industry have already been versioning efficiently with proven tools for years. This gave rise to the idea of making efficient collaboration based on the software development model accessible to non-IT professionals as well 💡.
Hi! I'm Michael and I'm responsible for strategy and business development at neopolis 🧭. In addition, I lead the product management together with Johannes and am the link between customer voice and development at our company 👂. After studying industrial engineering in Dresden, Berlin and Shanghai, I worked at the German Bundestag, the TU Berlin and at Bosch as a project manager and research assistant. In my spare time I am on the road with my son, or my bike and learn Chinese 🚵🏻.
Moin! I'm Johannes and I take care of IT and design at neopolis. That means I design the user interface and build the software infrastructure 🖥👨🏽🎨. I studied B.Sc & M.Sc. Industrial Engineering at TU Berlin, as well as IT Systems Engineering at HPI in Potsdam. During this time I also gained practical experience at VW, BMW, Capgemini and SMEs 🏢. My free time I spend at the CNC milling machine at MotionLab Berlin ⚙️.
Grützi! I'm Sebastian and I'm responsible for Customer Success and Finance at neopolis 📈. I support the development and sales processes to integrate client requests into the product. Previously, I was at ETH Zurich and Stanford University, where I studied artificial intelligence applications 🤖. Thence, I have assisted in research projects in data processing and visualization and developed AI applications for sustainability projects (Microsoft AI4Earth) 🧪. I enjoy playing jazz guitar and meeting friends for joint "jam" sessions 🎸 .

Hello! I'm Nils and I'm a frontend developer at neopolis, responsible for product development. My main activity is the development of our products based on web technologies like the Word-Add-In, or the Web-Commenter 💻. I studied computer science in Berlin and then worked primarily as a frontend developer on complex web apps in the logistics and e-commerce sector 🚚. I like to spend my time working in/on the house or on my bike. Otherwise, I can usually be found in nature with my son 🏞️.
