Lead Developer & the Organic Brain of CELUS
Beda is the not-so-secret sauce behind Big Dig Data, the company powering CELUS. He's not only CELUS' heart, soul, and brain but also the secret ingredient in our tech innovations. Fueled by the finest coffee, a table tennis enthusiast, and a mountain-scaling adventurer, Beda is our crown jewel. In simpler terms: no Beda, no CELUS.
Founder & Godfather
Armed with a degree in Applied Informatics in Chemistry from the University of Chemistry and Technology in Prague. He's a versatile asset, navigating REACH Regulation, GMO research, and even doing a little AI dance. Tomáš believes in keeping things simple, aligning perfectly with CELUS' philosophy. He's also the team's source of positivity, adding sunshine to CELUS' atmosphere and making it the cheerful hub it is today!
(Mostly) Backend Developer
Stepan's communication style leans towards binary code, but when decoded into human language, he shares, "I work mostly on the backend part of Celus for a couple of years now. I was brought to the Celus team by our Team Lead/UI guru Béda.
As for the CELUS future, I think that it will play a significant role in preserving human knowledge during the upcoming zombie apocalypse."
Our librarian on a mission to modernize libraries, fueled by a love for Czech desserts rivaling a sugar-loving unicorn! He's the wizard behind Celus' library outreach, leading the charge into the digital age and battling outdated card catalogs. When not at conferences or hosting webinars, Ken embarks on epic quests through the world's greatest libraries and archives. Watch out, Dewey Decimal System, Ken's coming for you with a keyboard and a wicked sense of humor!
Lucie is our walking library powerhouse with a Master's degree in Information studies and librarianship, and a Bachelor's degree in Informatics and Chemistry. With her togetherness and the wisdom gained from working at the Library of the Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Lucie is basically the Hermione Granger of CELUS. If there's a prize for tracking down the best source of metadata on journals, consider it claimed by Lucie faster than you can say "Accio research!"
Junior Developer, Mascot
During his med school journey, Zbynek had a revelation: the future of medicine relied heavily on IT and big data. As he neared graduation, his passion for programming and tech grew. He's since played a crucial role in shaping CELUS' front-end and back-end. Zbynek praises the meticulous coding standards, saying, "If I were a librarian, CELUS would undoubtedly be my scalpel of choice," with a genuine grin and no pressure from colleagues.
Our Product Owner extraordinaire at CELUS. Her job description might as well be "Chief Everything Officer." Whether it's debugging SUSHI credentials or polishing marketing materials, she's the go-to person. Need assistance with CELUS? Simona's got your back, and she might even draft a knowledgebase article while at it. But her secret talent? Crafting hilariously witty bios for the CELUS website – a skill that took everyone by surprise!
Seasoned designer responsible for the latest improvements in Celus' visuals and usability. With over a decade of experience in both physical and digital product design, service design, branding and filmmaking. He's also an avid sailor and windsurfer.
Data Processing Genius
Diana, much like her well-cared-for plants, is a rare find. Behind her innocent appearance lies a mathematical genius who subscribes to magazines just for their beautiful data visualizations (true story). She's adept in data processing and machine learning, finally providing Beda with someone he can have intellectually challenging conversations with. She thrives on copious amounts of excellent tea, consuming liters of it daily.
