We have a rock-solid team with a huge amount of experience
in the Social Networking space.
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
The topic of Eric’s BA thesis in English philology was “The Influence of Scotch Whisky on Scottish Culture.” Completing that thesis took the kind of discipline that Eric now brings to PeepSo. He comes up with some unbeatable ideas, creates the clearest specs, makes sure that they get made and gets a kick out of seeing people using and loving the products. Like Matt, he also drives too fast on his motorbike.
Founder & Chief Technology Officer
Ever since Matt was a teenager, code has been more than a set of instructions to him – it’s poetry, with order and meaning and priorities. He has over ten years of professional experience with Open Source web development and handling big projects (CloudAccess, BlablaCar, JomSocial – just to name a few). When he works on PeepSo, we can be sure that the code under the hood will always be clean and clearly organized.
On top of PHP, Python and Swift, his hobby are “real” languages – he speaks Polish, English, German and some Malay / Indonesian, Russian and Chinese. When Matt’s not in front of his laptop, there’s a good chance he’ll be out for a run, riding a motorbike, falling off a surfboard, wrapping bacon around a steak or dancing salsa. Sometimes he also simply stays home and grows his beard.
Merav has spent over ten years in open source development and for the last few years she has been running JomSocial, Joomla’s most successful social networking application. She’s made an easy leap into the WordPress world, embracing this exciting community. Merav is known as a no-nonsense doer, not afraid to do take on the hard stuff. She likes to exceed customer’s expectations and is passionate about creating powerful and user-friendly products that bring communities together. On May 1st 2017 she handed over PeepSo to Eric and Matt.
Mateusz is an artist who paints in pixels. He’s able to imagine a clean presentation and put it straight onto the screen faster than any of us could describe it. No one can turn ideas into designs quicker or better than Mateusz. He also love fast cars and spend all free time on modyfing his car.
Septiyan has a bachelor’s degree in Informatics Engineering from Indonesian Computer University. Nothing makes him happier than a difficult challenge; he loves the feeling of figuring out a smart solution. Dates with his wife and playtime with his son make for wonderful weekends and a chance to recharge for the coming week’s challenges.
Bagus Pribadi Setiawan
Bagus started playing with computers in elementary school. He learned how to install applications and run operating systems, and since discovering coding in high school he’s been almost inseparable from a keyboard and monitor. The only thing that can tear him away from website development is a chance to pack a camera and hit the road.
Gen Gen Fikri Adam
Gen Gen spent six years in the corporate world as a web developer. He is a software enthusiast who loves learning new technology, loves solving problems, and loves writing thousand lines of code. For Gen Gen, the greatest pleasure is doing the impossible. He looks for challenges, especially cracking problems in programming, and spends most of his time with his brain and his laptop.
When he’s not clacking the keyboard, he reads science and history books, rides his bike, plays football and hangs out in coffee shops with his friends.
No one knows more about CMS than Ricardo. He can explain in painstaking detail the difference between Drupal, Joomla, WordPress and just about every other system on the Web (so don’t ask him!). From his base in Argentina, Ricardo now runs our forum and helps PeepSo customers get the most out of their extensions. Then he’ll go for a run or take a long walk in the woods with his wife and dogs.
Jo Murphy completed her Masters in Media, Film and Communication Studies at the University of Otago in New Zealand, before moving to Australia (first Melbourne, and then Byron Bay). She was the first Australian city director for Lesbians Who Tech, and her major passions are content writing and social media strategy. When she isn’t at her desk or running workshops, she enjoys vegan cooking, travel, gardening, reading and television/movies.
Dean Shanson is PeepSo’s editor and content writer. He has created user-friendly copy for countless websites, run several online magazines and written engaging articles for both Web and print magazines on topics ranging from international trade to AdSense optimization to online dating. He ghostwrites books and columns for several well-known marketing gurus and recently saw one ghostwritten work become Amazon’s best-selling business book.
Brad Bihun has been involved with the WordPress community since 2007 and co-organizes the San Diego WordPress meetup group. He relies heavily on WordPress for his 2 software companies and annual charity event StachetoberFest for content, marketing and e-commerce.
Brad has been involved with the project management and business relations of PeepSo since it’s inception and pursued it being developed for many years before it finally came to fruition. Brad is so excited the new Social Networking plugin PeepSo is now available for the WordPress community to use and enjoy to build their own communities.
