Our Team

The Team, that'll get you to the next level

We see ourselves less as a company than as a team of people who help others to grow beyond themselves. Honesty and transparency are just as important to us as an open and welcoming corporate culture. We look forward to getting to know you: Hi! 👋

Experience on all levels

Dalia Das

Founder & CEO

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 recent years, she accompanied a U.S. 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 in-demand developers and Data Scientists. These bootcamps not only create more digital workers, but also more diversity in digital jobs. 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.
