Hacking the World

Hi! I’m Mayel. A software 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 as a solidarity volunteer for various grassroots organisations in Greece, helping set up computer labs and digital solutions to meet the needs of refugees.

Current and recent 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 a website or app, or setting up the servers.

On top of my core skills (programming, sysadmin, and tech in general), I’ve been in charge of things like product design, UX, project management, planning, fundraising, team building, community, customer service, branding, press, social media, and even marketing/sales when unavoidable…

I’m occasionally available for:

  • Remote, short-term consulting and/or programming work
  • Investigating your needs and those of your users and then prototyping solutions
  • Collaborating through email / instant messaging / videoconferencing / project management tools
  • Delivering code (PHP/JS/HTML/etc) via Git
