Web Development Team Lead
As a WEB Development Team Lead, Gero’s days are usually split into two equally important parts.
Team Management and Coaching:
At the beginning of each day, his team has dedicated time for a Q&A session related to development projects. After the general meeting, they have a specific time frame committed to each crew member where Gero’s coaching knowledge comes in handy.
Hardcore Development, a.k.a. Express Delivery:
The FinTech world is a very dynamic niche. The team has to be very flexible to deliver all planned innovations at the given deadlines. Of course, each crew member is chosen uniquely by our rigorous screening process. However, they are not robots, and sometimes even the best can use a pair of extra hands! Here, Gero’s Senior Full Stack expertise comes in handy.
Quote of success: “Luck is a dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get.”

POLARICA LTD | January 2017 – July 2019
FullStack WordPress Developer and R&D Manager
Starting in Polarica 3 years ago was an attractive new opportunity. With time challenges grew from LP, mailers & basic WordPress websites to the entire Online Gaming Platform. He started to build their platform and frameworks entirely based on WordPress, implementing unique REST APIs back then and connecting their WP end to the games provider systems.
A few months later, the team’s delivery has grown, and with it, the team grew as well. With this change, Gero was promoted to R&D Manager, and now he’s leading the Creative & Development team of Polarica.
Make sure all of the projects will be delivered on time, things will go smoothly, and in the end, everyone will be happy.
As an R&D manager, his job was to help the team understand tasks, check them, and join the Dev & Design team to deliver the final product faster. His Full-Stack Development backbone history helped immensely with the different issues while developing a new product.
