The Fast Endo - Christian
Christian holds a M.Sc. in Engineering from The Technical University of Denmark, and has before co-founding Endomondo worked as management consultant at McKinsey & Co.
Beside his professional experience, Christian has worked with some of the largest running events in the world, and has a background as runner himself. That is why Christian finds
the cross field between mobile technology, business opportunities and sports a very interesting place to play!
Christian ended his professional career as a 400m runner in 2004, but later found the joy of long distance sports. During the early Endomondo days he completed his first
marathon run and over the following years he completed a 30 km cross-country run, 90 km cross-country skiing race, 300 km road biking race and 3 km open water river swim,
which is also known as the Swedish Classic! An event he did together with Jakob and other members of the Endomondo team.
The Female Endo - Mette
Mette is co-founder of Endomondo and she is responsible for marketing, PR and partnerships within these fields. Prior to becoming an entrepreneur, Mette worked with McKinsey & Co -
primarily with strategy across different sectors. Mette also has a background from a large newspaper where she worked as a researcher and journalist - experience that come in handy
when dealing with PR. Mette holds a master's degree in Political Science from the University of Aarhus.
Sportswise, Mette used to be an active horseback rider in both dressage and show jumping. After eight years at a competitive level, she decided to pursue other, less time
consuming sports. Nowadays, Mette is primarily into fitness since this is much easier to combine with life as an entrepreneur.
The Casual Endo - Jakob
Jakob co-founded Endomondo. Jakob has a combined passion for sports and the mobile and Internet industry,
which is key to understanding his passion for Endomondo and healthy living. Jakob holds a master's degree in Political Science from the University of Copenhagen.
Before founding Endomondo, Jakob spent some years at McKinsey & Co, focusing on the media industry within the field of strategy and M&A.
Jakob is an avid athlete and generally likes any sport that is available where he is. While being at university, Jakob used to worked as a professional ski instructor in France
and was still part of the Danish Interski Team in 2011. He loves to surf, but recently (2011), he also completed a Swedish Classic, which is four different races: 90 km cross-country skiing race,
30 km cross-country run, 300 km road biking race and 3 km open water river swim.
THE REST OF THE ENDOMONDO TEAM:
The Tech Endo - Thomas
Thomas holds a M.Sc. in Computer Science from The University of Copenhagen and is responsible for the technological development and infrastructure. Having coded himself since the age of 9, Thomas has been driven by innovation and perfection all his life. Before joining Endomondo, Thomas worked at The University of Copenhagen as well as ten years in the Internet industry as a software engineer.
Thomas is a dedicated runner, working out at least five times a week - whether it be doing interval training, taking long runs by the beach with the other Endos or sprints around the office.
The Adventurous Endo - Ture
Ture never misses an opportunity to find new adventures. He is a ski instructor, does climbing, mountain biking, surfing, and telemark skiing to name a few sports,

The Karate Endo - Martin
Martin is as many other Endo's educated as software engineer at the Technical University of Denmark. He is working on the Endomondo Sports Tracker for the iPhone,
along with adding new cool features to the website. With 8 years of karate and 5 years of Wing Tsun, Martin is the one who keeps everybody safe at the office. When not fighting for fun, Martin goes diving or takes lessons to improve his singing skills.
The Enduring Endo - Jesper
Jesper has a thing for sports that require quite a bit of endurance. So far, he has completed five marathons in addition to the famous Swedish 90K ski race, Vasaloppet. Unfortunately, an injury has stopped Jesper from running for two years now but he is trying to get back into the game now. When not doing sports, Jesper is working on our tracking app for the Android platform and Windows Phone platforms.
The Polish Endo - Piotr
Piotr has captured the position as the committed Endo. More than a decade ago he won the world championship in Athletics with the Polish national 4x400m team. Piotr is responsible for Endomondo's expansion into Poland and other central and eastern European countries. During weekends, you can find Piotr running in the big forests of Warsaw
The Greek Endo - Alexandros
Alexandros went all the way from Greece to Denmark to join the team in Copenhagen. Alexandros loves running and before moving to Denmark he was often out sailing in the Mediterranean sun, but he needs to get used to the colder experience by sailing in the sea around Denmark! Besides putting a lot of code into the website, you can probably find Alexandros hiking in the forrest near Copenhagen.
The Climbing Endo - Michal
Michal loves to spend his free time climbing. His first attempts were on an artificial climbing wall in 2003. Soon after he moved on to rock climbing,
only to find his real passion a couple of years later in mountain-climbing, both summer and winter. At Endomondo he is responsible for Java-based version of the Endomondo Sports Tracker.
The Running Endo - Steen
Steen loves to wear his running shoes and you often see him burning a lot of calories on the paths and streets around Copenhagen. He is by far the fastest Endo
on any distance longer than 400m, and he is in charge of the Endomondo Store and works across various projects here at Endomondo. Steen is always up for a challenge,
so just send him an invite!
