The Jimdo Team

The Founders

Christian, Matthias, and Fridtjof started Jimdo in a barnhouse owned by Fridtjof's parents. Years later, Jimdo now has more than 8 million websites and supports 12 languages. The 3 founders write about their experiences with the company and can be contacted directly at founder@jimdo.com.

 

Christian Springub

Christian Springub

Operations and Jimdo USA

When Christian was twelve, he started his first business, buying and selling Kinder Surprise collectible toys at flea markets. Just a few years later he met up with Fritdjof, and the two started creating websites for small businesses in their hometown. Christian takes care of Jimdo's operations and helped start the US office in San Francisco.

 

 


Matthias Henze

Matthias Henze

Online Marketing and Sales

Matthias studied at the University of Kiel and the University of Gothenburg and then went into business with Fridtjof and Christian. Matthias takes care of Jimdo's marketing. Hang gliding is Matthias's passion — look up and you might see him soaring through the clouds. 

 

 

 


Fridtjof Detzner

Fridtjof Detzner

Product Development and Design

Fridtjof and Christian started their first company, dream-up.de, while they were still in school. Fridtjof went on to found another company with Christian and Matthias, which evolved into Jimdo in 2007. When Fridtjof is not in the office, he likes to mountain bike in the Alps, kite surf, and dream up other extremely frightening things he can try.

Stephen joined Jimdo in June 2013 to help expand Jimdo in the US and spread the word about our awesome website builder. Stephen has spent 20 years as an executive of Silicon Valley technology companies. He is a black diamond snow skier, an avid chess player, and a rabid fan of the San Francisco Giants and FC St. Pauli. He loves to enjoy great food and wine with his wife and five children.

William Molina

William Molina

Customer Support Geek

Helping people with their technology needs comes easy to William.  He came to Jimdo from EPA.net where he helped local businesses and organizations get online. When he's not answering tech support questions at Jimdo or at home, you might find him playing video games from the comfort of his couch.

 

 

 


Brent Gummow

Brent Gummow

Multi-talento

Brent joined Jimdo in July 2011, bringing his many talents and fresh ideas to the US team. In his past (and current lives), he's played in a band, been a freelance web designer, run a recording company, and started an MBA. So you can see -- when we need something done, Brent's our man!

 

 

 


Ana R. Alvarado

Ana R. Alvarado

Public Relations

Ana joined the Jimdo team in January 2012 to increase Jimdo's visibility in the USA. Ana comes from Southern California, where she worked at an interactive event photography company and studied Communications at UC Santa Barbara. Ana loves photography, culture, volleyball, spinning, and her two dogs and cat. She believes it's important to face your fears; you might also find her bungee jumping or trapeezing! 

 


Julia O. Test

Julia O. Test

Support Management and Visual Design

Julia Test (her real, not shortened last name) began helping Jimdo users with their website questions and issues in April 2012, but she's not new to the web world: previously, Julia worked at a company developing and supporting websites for CPAs. She is originally from Russia, but now rides her motorcycle to work every day in Jimdo's San Francisco office. Julia is a photographer, fine-dining enthusiast, and runner.

 


Dan Gray

Dan Gray

Social Media and Content Strategy

Dan joined Jimdo in October 2012 after returning from a year of teaching English in Dresden, Germany. He splits his time between translating German and working with the exciting community of Jimdo users. Dan can't grow a beard, but he loves strategic board games, Victorian novels, and strumming the seven chords that he knows on guitar.

 

 


Aeramis Fularon

Jesse joined Jimdo USA in December 2013. He focuses on spreading the word about Jimdo with his SEO and content marketing skills, though he also aspires to be become the next great Multi-talento, or perhaps just Brent’s sidekick. In his free time, Jesse enjoys trying new restaurants, planning his next international vacation, and reading Russian literature. He also loves everything Pittsburgh.
