Hacking the World

Hi! I’m Mayel. A developer and social entrepreneur who enjoys understanding and hacking systems, and occasionally designing and building new ones.


I've had the pleasure of building a lot of fun projects, including: Podemus, a podcasting platform (one of the first, back in 2005); LeLab.TV, a video platform (for which I also produced video content); Babelverse, an award-winning startup that took on the challenge of creating the 'universal translator', and now as a tech volunteer for many grassroots solidarity organisations in Greece, I’m busy setting up computer labs and online solutions to meet the needs of refugees.

My current projects include:


With over 10 years experience as a startup founder and over 15 years as a full-stack web app developer, I can help with a wide range of projects.

Whether it be defining a project’s strategy, designing the features and architecture, building and launching the website or app, or setting up the servers.

On top of my core technical skills, I’ve been in charge of everything from product design to project management, pitching to fundraising, hiring to project management, community building to customer service, branding to PR to social media, and even marketing and sales when that couldn’t be avoided…

I’m currently available for:

  • Remote, short-term consulting and/or programming work
  • Investigating the needs you and your users have, and finding optimal solutions
  • Collaborating through email / Skype / instant messaging / Trello
  • Delivering code (PHP/JS/HTML/etc) via Git
