David Gottschalk

Key Account Management / Business Development

Dennis Korbginski

+49 551 506 75-64

Our leadership in application development: Dennis floats above things, as well as all processes around the development of applications for our customers. He is responsible for the technical project conception, calculates the expected workload, reliably evaluates new technologies and leads the development team in new tasks. In his private life he is not far from this, because his leisure time is also dominated by technology: Netflix, games and YouTube provide the necessary diversion.

As a fire extinguisher in emergencies and an active arsonist for new ideas, project manager Gabi is committed to her customers and also ignites the spark for customer projects with our developers. After a fire - uh, after work, consuming HIIT or cardio workouts must burn in the muscles until the stove is finally out.

Jan Philipp Leusch

ERP / Backend Development

+49 551 506 75-59

Joy Schwarz

Trainee

Our annual intern Joy supports the Blackbit team in design matters and produces illustrations with enthusiasm and passion. As she is passionate about drawing, only the choice of motif draws a fine line between work and leisure. Only when it comes to weight training does she make a point.

Julia Jordan

Media Designer

Julia makes it pretty: As a media designer she floats in the Adobe Cloud and gives Blackbit products that certain something. Image editing, layout and typesetting are among her tasks. In her free time she makes artistic handlettering, knits, crochets or makes it pretty with her daughters. She also finds balance in her carnival dance group, jogging or fitness training.

Kerstin Schmitz

Media Design / Proofreading

+49 551 506 75-35

Kerstin is a media designer and proofreader - what was set in Latin letters at Blackbit has seen her stern eagle eye. Her meticulousness arises from her deep love for language. And because everything is allowed in war and love, she mercilessly pulls out the red pencil in the fight against weird formulations, crooked metaphors and limping comparisons. One also learns the difference between raven and crow mother from her.

Lisa Kleffner

Project Management

+49 551 506 75-71

Lisa sees herself as a gardener who plants desolate landscapes at the customer's request and advises them in the selection of suitable plants. Structure is everything, which is why she is tirelessly insisting on the timely implementation of her planting calendar - from planting the seeds to harvesting. She continues to work in strict rhythm after work: fixed dinners with the family, weight training or agility with her hunting dog. Only a full week is a good week!

Luisa Sens

Text & Social Media

Luisa manages the social media channels of many clients, develops strategies, creates concepts and helps out actively and with great attention to detail in numerous campaigns and projects.

She prefers to take her mind off things when it comes to outdoor exercise and creative projects: Capturing the world with her camera, designing stationery and holding the results in her hands. Whether it's a framed photo or an artistically crafted card on special paper - Luisa loves it when the boundaries between digital and analog blur.

Marie Amelie Elbeshausen

Media Designer

Media designer Marie conjures up impressive graphics, adds the finishing touches to pictures and then gets everything ready for printing. In order to find a balance to her sedentary everyday office life, she goes up high. Because on weekends she likes to go on a big tour in the Harz Mountains. What she hasn't seen on her trips, she simply adds at home. Because the loving cat mommy not only likes to illustrate analog, but with the help of her iPad she lets every conceivable animal appear in her photos of excursions. As if there are no unicorns in the Harz Mountains!

Administration / Financial Accounting

+49 551 506 75-10

Nadine has always been good at memorizing numbers and is simply great with them. That's why she handles all the processes involved in planning, controlling, documentation and cost accounting for the company. This way she arrives at the overall result and can document the financial situation as well as changes in inventories - she thus determines what remains at the bottom line.

In her private life, she likes to turn her back on the realm of numbers and reset her computer in the fresh air - by bike or on foot and with her family and dog.

Nadine Bisikati

Assistance to the Management

+49 551 506 75-74

Don't mess with Nadine! As head of the operative business she takes over everything concerning the organisation and control of the operational processes. Controlling is also in the hands of the avowed control freak. Nadine also describes herself as impatient, direct, impulsive, open and loud - just as you would wish your colleagues to be. Only in her free time, when she meets friends for cooking or when she travels around the world, does she sometimes become quite quiet.

Olaf Guse

Art Direction

+49 551 506 75-61

Art Director Olaf plays on a wide range of experience and composes web designs in Wordpress, so that our customers' websites and online stores offer something to the eye.

Playing chess and running also allows him to act strategically and gives him a lot of stamina, even for larger projects, far beyond the weekly sprint.

Oleh Katiuk

System / Cloud Administration

Thoroughbred developer Oleh is specialized in working with Amazon Web Services. Also privately, erstets is interested in learning how to apply new technologies and to meet the challenges with new solutions.

Patrick Bitzer

E-Commerce Development

+49 551 506 75-45

Fullstack web developer Patrick makes sure that everything looks great on the go and performs optimally. For him, free time means family time and if there's something left on his time account, he likes to grab his camera and take pictures or browse the web for tutorials and video courses to broaden his horizon.

Paul Vetter

Text & Concept

Sometimes creative, sometimes very dry and objective texts & concepts that are tailored to the needs of customers and target groups and sharpen Blackbit's self-marketing - that's Paul's world.

Sandra holds the reins in the digital marketing team: from resource planning, time and cost management of her projects, monitoring the progress of the project to regular coordination with the customer, constant quality control and customer advice. A lot of stuff! To compensate, she only holds the leash of her dog in her hands in her free time while they roam together through forests and meadows.

Siska Wilde

Art Direction

+49 551 506 75-13

Our all-round energy bundle: As a passionate art director, Siska plans, coordinates and accompanies all creative processes in our projects. This starts with the development of concepts, goes far beyond image editing and layout creation and doesn't end with the implementation of advertising measures in print and digital. Where does Siska get the power for all this? Spending time with her dog lady baby, rhythmic Zumba workouts and lots of sun - preferably under the Spanish sky.

In this way, he always learns new things and is always learning more. No wonder, because in his private life he also likes to broaden his horizons, try out new things, is undyingly in love with details and passionately defends his opinions. Perhaps one could even be hooded, discussing is his hobby.
