Leaving Softonic

moving on
Pretty much exactly two years ago I started working for Softonic. I changed from the rather small opus5 to what has been the largest company I have worked for so far.

Working in a company of about 250 people with a development team of around 80 people is certainly a different beast. I learned a lot of things especially regarding scrum management and web technologies. I also learned that it is very difficult to change things once something big like this is in motion.

Size also brings nice things, Softonic offers a lot of "google-style" perks, like massages, conference trips, insurance, free fruits, sweets and soft drinks, a very nice office with chill-out room and great views. If you are interested have a look at: It also means that you will always find someone interesting to talk to.     

But now it is time to move on. I am joining a smaller company with a new team, that I will write about in another post. I will stay in Barcelona though.

I want to thank everyone I worked with at Softonic, especially the brilliant SD team, SEO, the leads, the UK content team (for tea time entertainment) and everyone I chatted to in these years.


  1. Sad to hear you're going, but we'll keep in touch via Twitter and Facebook, I hope. Best of luck in your new career. :)

  2. It's been great to work with you, Christof. I'll keep you informed :D

  3. We'll miss you!

  4. Good luck in your new career! I was surprised when I came back from holidays and I saw your email
