Jesper Richter-Reichhelm
Head of Engineering, wooga GmbH

Website | @jrirei

Jesper Richter-Reichhelm has two big passions: developing software and games. For over 12 years he could only have fun by developing software for large scale web sites.

Then he joined wooga as Head of Engineering in 2009 and suddenly Jesper could do both as wooga is developing games for Facebook. The company quickly became Europe largest developers of social games with more than 15 million players per month.

Currently Jesper is both happy and busy using Ruby and NoSQL databases to build social games that have more than 1,000,000 million users every day.
