May we introduce ourselves?
Our Team – The WOGRAners
We WOGRAners are creative minds, original developers and structured software engineers. We are curious and competent. Reliability is a top priority for us, sovereignty is a matter of course – and team spirit is our recipe for success.
As our longest-serving colleague, Alexandra has witnessed all of WOGRA's developments. She watches over the finances, takes care of the bookkeeping and controls the incoming payments. Alexandra always has the back of our team, makes sure that we lack nothing and has an open ear for large and small concerns. All in all, we have Alexandra to thank for the fact that we can take care of our core business while she devotes herself to the many other daily tasks. For WOGRA, she is thus an absolutely indispensable team member and an essential building block of our success!
Ceren Software Engineer
Ceren is a career changer, bringing with her a bachelor's degree in genetics and molecular biology as well as a master's degree in biophysics. She had her first contact with computer science during her master's program. Fortunately, she decided to pursue this new passion and add a computer science degree on top of it. Ceren is incredibly inquisitive and ideally complements our team with her calm and level-headed manner.
Linda Team assistance
Linda has the WOGRAners' backs and ensures that everyone can focus on their tasks. She is our friendly voice on the phone, beautifies our office, helps wherever needed and assists with invoicing and controlling.
Mark DevOps Engineer
Mark supports WOGRA as a DevOps Engineer. He manages the network infrastructure, our customers' systems and is responsible for our cloud and Kubernetes strategy.
Head of Operations
Sidonia Head of Operations
Before joining WOGRA, Sidonia worked for a large retail company as a project manager for software projects. During this time, she gained experience in dealing with various software service providers, among others. Today, Sidonia has switched sides and works as a Project Manager for WOGRA. Her previous experience is a tremendous asset as she knows both sides and therefore understands the customer needs very well. This ability makes our customers feel that they are in optimal hands with her. Sidonia's many years of experience also benefit us internally and help us to further optimize processes and working methods. In addition to project management, she also takes care of personnel issues. Her structured approach and consistent actions ensure that projects she supervises are always successfully completed.
Melanie Quality Engineer
Before Melanie joined WOGRA in 2015, she worked for a very successful start-up as a Quality Engineer. At WOGRA, we quickly discovered that in addition to her testing skills, she also has great organizational skills. Over the years, she proved her versatility not only in project management but also in marketing. Today, however, she is once again focusing on her original vocation, quality assurance.
Stefan Software Architect
During his time at the University of Augsburg, Stefan was called the "Swiss army knife of the department" by his professor. He knows how to familiarize himself with new technologies and acquire a deep technological knowledge like no other. This means that Stefan always has an ace up his sleeve and the best solution at hand. Fortunately for us, he decided to move into the free economy and, despite or perhaps because of the many choices, to join the WOGRA team, which was still quite small at the time. In 2012, he started working for us as a software engineer and actively contributed his ideas to our team from the very beginning. Due to his high demands on software quality and his expertise in long-lasting software architectures, he has been the main person responsible for the technical implementation of software development projects at WOGRA since 2016. Stefan is a welcome contact for our partners because he can easily transport complex solutions. Having cared deeply about the knowledge culture at WOGRA, he co-initiated the WOGRA Tech Talks (link).
Sarah Software Engineer
Sarah studied business mathematics and discovered her passion for software development during exciting computer science lectures. At WOGRA, she first completed an internship to familiarize herself with domain-specific languages. We used her quite soon in the development of complex commission algorithms, for which she learned the handling of Oracle databases within a very short time. Her performance convinced us so much that we subsequently took her on as a trainee. Sarah also developed excellently during her time as a trainee and therefore became a permanent member of the WOGRA family in 2018. Since then, Sarah has always convinced us and our customers with very good results.
Project Manager & AI Architect
Thomas Project Manager & AI Architect
Thomas has a great fondness for numerics, in which he received his PhD from the University of Augsburg. After completing his doctorate, he moved to a Munich-based software development service provider, for whom he worked primarily in the embedded area at an automotive group. Before joining WOGRA, he was also a product owner responsible for several development teams. Thomas is passionate about the topic of artificial intelligence and is successfully deployed as a Project Manager in customer projects for AI at WOGRA.
Franziska Software Engineer
Like some other WOGRAners, Franzi did not approach software development in a direct way. After graduating from high school, she initially decided to pursue medical training. After that, she decided to catch up on her high school diploma and study computer science. Since August 2022 Franzi strengthens our development department and brings new momentum to the running team of WOGRA.
Like many members of our team, the WOGRA founder started as a working student in software development. He then moved into a permanent position as a software engineer and became a project manager for development projects in the banking sector at the age of only 25. This and his idea for a low code development platform were the basis for the foundation of WOGRA. In addition to his professional activities, Wolfgang was already successfully active as a coach of youth and adult teams in sports clubs at a young age. The experience gained there with regard to team composition, inner motivation and the pursuit of common goals flowed into the development of WOGRA from the very beginning. Wolfgang may not be the best Project Manager, the best Software Architect or the best Software Engineer in our team. But he stands for the philosophy of WOGRA like no other: Impress with professionalism - inspire with solutions! Due to his excellent networking and his good reputation among customers and partners, he manages to continuously advance WOGRA.
Klaus Software Engineer
Klaus' developer heart beats not only for AI, but also for web and mobile applications. In his spare time, he deals with exciting electrical and microcontroller topics and also tries his hand at IoT projects.
Eduard Software Architect
Eduard's career at WOGRA began in 2014 as a working student. After he mastered the first, demanding tasks very independently and solution-oriented, we quickly assigned him larger tasks in customer projects. He always repaid the trust placed in him with exceptionally good performances. The results resulting from Eduard's bachelor thesis are still the basis of many of our software solutions today. As a software architect, he is increasingly involved in the development of web applications and mobile apps. In addition to his technological skills, his dry sense of humor and affable manner make him an extremely popular colleague.
Tim AI Engineer
Tim came, saw and won - that's the best way to sum up his career at WOGRA. Besides the fact that he is a super nice guy, he has an incredible knowledge in the subject area of artificial intelligence and can use it very skillfully in all customer projects. He basically delivers his work in very good quality and at an incredible speed. With these qualities, he is a welcome member of any project team and an absolute asset to WOGRA!
Florian Software Engineer
Florian studied Interactive Media at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences before joining our team permanently in 2018. In his projects, he does not simply map functions, but enables great user experiences through well thought-out and attractively designed controls. Through his critical questioning style, he helps to sharpen the customer's requirements for the product in order to achieve the best possible result. Florian is not only our secret weapon for user interfaces and user experiences, but also our walking encyclopedia for all questions around general knowledge.

Mathias Software Engineer
Mat joined the WOGRA family in 2015. He started as a working student, wrote his bachelor thesis with us and has been a permanent part of our development team since the beginning of 2019. Mat found his way to studying computer science via training as an IT systems electronics technician. At WOGRA, he prefers to focus on front-end development in the web and mobile environment. Even during his time as a working student, he was able to solve complex tasks very efficiently. In stressful situations, Mat is someone you can absolutely rely on. As an admin, he looks after some of our software systems and is responsible for making the Tech Talk videos available on YouTube.
Theodor Software Engineer
With his more than 20 years of project experience, we have brought Theo on board, another very experienced developer who is very enthusiastic about new trends and technologies. Privately, Theo relaxes in his small garden. Rumor has it that he grows the best tomatoes far and wide. Theo prefers to be in nature even when doing sports. There you can meet him cycling or jogging.
