CEO & Founder
Jakob is driven by his deep passion for technology and its positive impact on the future. That’s why he
ditched his cozy and safe job as a teacher to become a tech company founder instead.
Imagine him as a fine blend of gorilla-wrangling physical fitness (well … almost), combined with

and bring order into chaos — in a way that feels natural rather than forced-upon. This is precisely why she
is in charge of product management at Gorilla!
When she is not wrangling tickets or taming Gantt charts, there is a good chance you find Aymie dining at
the best restaurant in town. Or teaching Saarland locals, like Sascha, how to properly speak their dialect.

Valentin is a phantom. Only little is known about this mighty spectre in Gorilla’s server room. But you

However, if you look into a mirror and whisper sudo three times, chances are you might catch a short
glimpse of Valentin. Unfortunately by then, he might already have injected his source code into your cerebral
