The Team

neue fische is a team of industry experts with a clear vision and a strong partner network of leading digital companies and startups from all over Germany. We are the team behind the 12-week intensive courses to become a Web Developer or Data Scientist. In the USA, "boot camps" for digital talent have long been successfully established and are thus placing more and more specialized workers in the market - new fish for the personnel pond, that is!

Founder & CEO

Dalia Das

For more than 15 years, the Hamburg native with Indian roots worked in business development for companies such as AOL Europe and the Bertelsmann Group. In the process, she repeatedly discovered that the implementation of the digital transformation depends massively on the availability of qualified employees. In the last few years, she accompanied a US education fund with a focus on investments in innovative education and workforce acquisition models. There, she came to appreciate the established Technology Bootcamps that successfully train career changers to become high-demand developers and Data Scientists. These bootcamps not only create more digital workers, but also more diversity in digital professions. Without further ado, she founded in Germany; the birth of neuefische - School and Pool for Digital Talent. "Don't complain, just do it," is her motto.

Head Coach Web Development

Leon Machens

Leon is a perfect fit for us! His own path to becoming a web developer started in many weekend nights: he taught himself quite a few skills. Already at the age of 14! He studied computer engineering, but according to his own statement he learned most of it as a freelancer. Even when he doesn't have a permanent job, he still pushes his own apps - especially in the field of gaming, because he was also a pro gamer for a few years. Leon firmly believes that projects help everyone become - and stay - a capable developer! However, he believes that you become a really good developer primarily by working in a team. Just like we exemplify at neuefische every day on the campus in Cologne.

In addition to his industry experience in automotive, fashion, media, telecommunications and insurance, he has convinced us with his constant enthusiasm for design and tech topics and his desire to learn new things and pass on this knowledge! In his free time you can find him on trips to the mountains and lakes in beautiful Bavaria and - if time allows - in the studio producing electronic music.
