Giorgos Ampavis

Lead iOS Engineer

Giorgos is a geek by nature, a coder and a technologist. He is passionate about technology, coding, mobile applications and lean startups and he is always keen on learning new technologies, experimenting and finding cool solutions for his projects. A huge supporter of clean and well-designed code, he is an admirer of beautiful design that complements a well-written code and is always striving to create pixel perfect interfaces.

He has an extensive IT and programming background and a specialized knowledge in web & mobile applications development (front-end) but with a broad knowledge too in the full stack of software development (front-end, back-end and databases).

He started his programming career in London where he worked both for digital agencies and startups and as a freelancer for many years. In 2010, he returned to Athens to work for OgilvyOne Worldwide Athens and throughout the years worked at various types of projects (many of them awarded too) like websites, microsites, digital installations, mobile applications, games, Facebook applications etc for clients such as Nestle, OTE, Cosmote, Unilever, Athinaiki Zythopoiia (Heineken, Amstel), Fage, Vichy and others. In 2014, Giorgos decided to delve into the world of startups, and joined Locish and later on Mokaal. When his little padawan came to life, he took some time off and worked solely as a freelancer, again for startups such as Forky and TheCityGame among others.

He also has a strong academic background and excellent communication, people and team-leading skills. A proud father of a Jedi youngling with an addiction to cinema and TV series, when he is not coding he will probably be practicing his rock ā€™nā€™ roll moves.

He dreams one day to build his own light saber and bring balance to the Force.
