developers with a view in all directions
We are a web development company since 2015 (formerly MatthiasWeb) based in Germany. Focused on high-quality WordPress plugins, React frontends and Node.js backends, we follow typed programming languages, software testing methods and design thinking principles to develop the software you want to use.
It doesn’t matter what technology is used, but it is important how the solutions affect people.
Consulting & Freelance Development
Businesses grow in the way they look at problems. Someone with an outside view and expert knowledge can open up new perspectives for companies and solve problems even better. We want to share our skills with your company to sketch great ideas, develop comprehensible solutions and run fantastic products. At the moment, we are not available for freelance work beside our Cookie Experts service for Real Cookie Banner.
Everyone tells us: WordPress plugins are a mess. Our answer is always: Let’s take this opportunity to make the system that powers every third website on the Internet better. Our goal is to create useful WordPress plugins to a high-quality standard that feel like native built-in WordPress features. We want you to really love our plugins and throw plugins away with flashing banners, poppy colors and annoying popups.
Software development is about the sharing of knowledge and solutions. In the course of time we have learned and used a lot, from people we didn’t know before. Now we want to give something back to the community. Therefore, we publish solutions that are used in our products as Open-Source projects and want to improve them together with you. We are firmly convinced that together is the better way than against each other, and we want to convince you of this with our solutions.
Together we are stronger, better and faster to develop great solutions to real problems.
An early bird
My day starts in the early morning. When other people are still sleeping, I try to simplify problems and find delightful solutions. Even though I am a thoroughbred developer, every problem starts and ends outside the scope of software development. That’s why it’s important for me to understand people’s needs and then translate solutions into infrastructure, code and design. I keep my finger on the pulse of the times to present the most suitable solutions.
A night owl
The days must start late, but some solutions need stamina into the late night to be solved. With a background in business informatics, I see software development as a tool that enables you to transform complex problems into simple solutions. Business, design and software development must come together to create something meaningful. I want to listen to people’s needs and translate them into concepts that we as developers with different strength and weaknesses can implement.
The allround bird
Wow! Here I am, among the owls at devowl.io! I can’t turn my head 270°, but a 360° overview is very important to me. Even as a child, my indomitable curiosity made me discover and question things. Why does something work the way it does? Can it be done better? The fascination for technology and the unlimited thirst for knowledge laid the foundation for my greatest passion in software development: optimization and efficiency. I love meeting challenges with creativity and redefining ways to solve them.
Both Matthias and Jan were excited about learning software development even in their childhood. When they were about 14 years old, they met in an online video game and decided to start a software project together. After over a year of development, they failed due to a lack of experience. Both found their own way in professional software development in the following years. But about ten years later the two met again and shared all the different experiences with each other to start something new together: devowl.io
