The team

We have different backgrounds, but the same values. Passion for our work and respect for each other.

Key people

  • Philipp MintchinCo-Founder and CEO

    Philipp is the entrepreneur. At 13 Philipp had his first job. At 20 he started his first company. He founded Splyt three years later. They say this is when he stopped sleeping. He is an expert in global mobility, knowledge he shares in conferences around the world. He is trilingual, Russian, German and English, and can easily navigate cross–cultural environments.

    Fun fact: He is one of those rare people who like Mondays and hate weekends.

  • Stephen MasonChief Technology Officer

    Stephen is a fixer. His experience as a software engineer and his communicative nature make him the perfect go–to person for any technical questions our partners might have. He plays a key role in client acquisition. Before Splyt, Stephen graduated with honours from City University London and was a software engineer at Accenture.

    Fun fact: He is a car fanatic and calls his 2002 Subaru Impreza WRX his "mechanical love".

  • Niklas RehmertChief Revenue Officer

    Nik is one for efficiency. He believes improvements are not just a consequence of evolution, but a necessity. After having studied at Oxford University and Imperial College he realised technology is his passion. His consultancy experience and technical knowledge make him a bridge between Splyt engineers and partners.

    Fun fact: He spent one year in Nepal, doing all kinds of things. Ask him about sheep farming.

  • Andrius SkerlaTechnical Director

    Andy is the curious type. He likes to know how, when, where, and especially why. Why programming? Because for him, it's not just finding the solution, it's also finding the elegant solution. He is a graduate of Northumbria University with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing.

    Fun fact: If he were to choose a superpower, it would be time travel. Why? Just to answer some of the questions he has.

  • Yulia DankovaCo-Founder

    You can find Yulia graciously multitasking the administrative bits at Splyt. She has successfully pioneered the Q&A methods, among others. Before Splyt, she was a junior analyst at Rubicon Capital and graduated from the University of Westminster.

    Fun fact: Yulia plays the piano. Not just your average Chopin bit, but heavy metal songs from System of a Down.
