The 4BIS team
Our technology brings results, our people make the difference
The 4BIS adventure started in 2014 when our founders Max and Edwin decided to put their technological and entrepreneurial talent to good use and create something that would impact other businesses for the better. Today, we are well on our way to achieve just that, with every day more and more small and medium-sized companies choosing us for their IT journey.
Tech aficionados by day and dreamers by night, we are a diverse, young and international team powered by coffee and fun. Not just your regular IT providers, our family of ambitious, tech-loving professionals share one strong vision: innovation drives the world.
Our passion, collaboration and hard work are what turn promising ideas into rewarding change, and through them we thrive to be the next generation of must-watch tech startups.
Who are we?
Meet our IT crowd
Quote: “Technology has the power to change the world.”
His things: Talking (about tech), and ultimate frisbee.
Bio: With his impressive background of high-level studies in applied mathematics, his unlimited reserve of enthusiasm for innovation and many years as a tech and strategy specialist in the big corporate world, Max is our Ukrainian tech guru and ideas generator.
King of operations
Quote: “There is no such thing as too much coffee.”
His things: Queen Beatrix and pugs.
Bio: Proud owner of a shoe-lacing degree, Edwin is the definition of a self-made man. Founder, co-founder or partner of many (many!) companies, he doesn’t count his hours. Admin, customer care, management, you name it, he does it. And he codes, too…
Quote: “Ik joris het wel ff weg”
His things: A glass of Whiskey, Pirate Memes and yelling: ‘Yarrrrr’
Bio: Fabian is a 24/7 tech kind of guy: working with us during the day, studying software engineering at night and even helping friends developing their websites in the weekend, he never stops. Now this is what we call passion!
Quote: “Are offices always this fun?”
His things: Gaming and telling jokes.
Bio: At only 16 years old, our super intern is well and truly part of the team. While he must finish his studies in IT application and media development first, we are grooming him to get him on board with us full time once he graduates.
The Marketing girl
Quote: “Guys, help, I think I broke the Internet!”
Her things: Writing and hummus.
Bio: Self-taught polyglot, accomplished world traveler and bubbly networker, the Frenchie of the team is our communications expert and events coordinator. Creative, customer-driven and knowledge-addict, she left her country and her beloved hospitality industry to build a future in the tech world.
Steve the Platypus
Quote: “Yes I know I am cute and no, I am not a beaver, mate.”
His things: Butterfly swimming and complaining about the weather.
Bio: Steve left his warm native Australia in 2016 after divorcing his wife (on amicable terms) and getting bitten by a shark. He moved to Europe for safety and to become a famous painter. Being an office pet is just a temporary job while he awaits glory.
