“I like our team's attitude of focus on Shopping and no compromise in quality. I am proud to see how much the individual characters of our team have grown in recent years, individually and as a whole. Our worldwide success with Whoop! is based on our strong Adwords-expertise gained over years working with hundreds of customers.”
“A pretty mixed bunch - in the positive sense of the word -
that's gathered here at smec. In addition to the personalities
and the fair and open communication within the team,
it is certainly the mix of e-commerce, online marketing and
state of the art software development that makes us quite unique.”
Whoop! is lovingly built and maintained by these fine folks. Here are some of them:
