Software should empower work,
not get in the way of it.
Toggl was initially created for our own in-house use,
because existing time-tracking software was far too complicated.
Krister has no programming background whatsoever, which is why he’s so good at bossing the rest of us around. He’s a passionate scuba diver and reports once seeing his hand in front of his face while diving in the murky Baltic Sea.
Liisa spent twelve years as an exchange student (eight in Thailand and four in England). No one in the office is quite sure how that’s possible. Liisa is the one who answers your email, so if she explains it to you, please let us know.
Alari is the Father of Toggl. In fact, he used to ask us to address him as such. To his dismay nobody ever did. He's a good guy, though. For an engineer.
Tanel (pronounced like "Tunnel" if you say it fast) is not related to the former president of Russia, even though their names share some letters. Also, he is taller than Medvedev. Tanel loves code.
Cars, gadgets, and anything related to cool and new technology are Margus’ passions. He is vehement about taking the time to make everything work perfectly, which he calls “thorough” and we call “slow.”
Janika claims to be the only female programmer in the entire country. She’s also a playwright and a fan of violent, David Lynch-style stuff. Oh, and she’s also a belly dancer.
When he’s not dealing with HTML or user interface issues, Indrek is a professional body builder. He is constantly hassling the rest of us about our diets, which makes us suspect he’s a serious closet junk food eater. Just why is there a lock on his lower right desk drawer?
Grethel is calm, cool, and collected, three essential qualities for customer support. To stay that way, she likes to swim. (Because of her, we’re installing a pool in our office.) After university in the UK, she worked in tourism before gravitating to software marketing. But, oddly enough, what Grethel loves most are cars, and she says she wouldn’t mind being a taxi driver. Go figure.
Ervin admits to being a hacker, though he won’t say exactly what he’s hacked. His Toggl specialties (all completely legal) are backend and databases. If you want to make him really happy, ask him about his new son.
Tambet is a hardcore programmer and easily the fittest guy in the office. In addition to time spent working out, he likes to play hockey on a gym floor, which in Northern Europe, he claims, is considered a men’s sport.
Having run a marketing consultancy before she sold her soul to Toggl, Annika can very well relate to the ups and downs of small business. She’s keen on SEO, user acquisition, and growth hacking, and she claims to possess a bag of magical fairy dust that will help Toggl dominate the time tracking world inside six months. We’re very glad she’s on our side.
Taavi is Toggl’s very first official Facebook-generation developer. He insists on using only Apple products and is a competitive kite surfer. Taavi is a bit secretive, which is why we don’t have too much information for his bio. If you learn something about him, please let us know.
Marek worked for some big name startups, but then saw the light and came to write backend code and improve development processes for Toggl, a soon-to-be big name startup. He is also a trained rock climber.
Developers fear her for a good reason: she’s tough and demanding. Though she’s worked as a project manager for the best part of her life, Marit is also crazy about good design and modern art. For kicks, she’s currently doing a degree in psychology.
