Our Mission is to shape the Future of Email.
Email is the number one communication tool at work, but very little has been done to improve the design and functionalities it offers. At Gmelius, we research, develop and release products that transform your inbox into an advanced communication platform.
Meet the Team We're hiring!
Dr. Florian Bersier
Florian is the founder and original developer of Gmelius. He has a PhD in Complex Systems from the University of Oxford and a Master's degree from the École Polytechnique, France. When not in front of his computer (rarely...), you can find him riding his motorbike or his mountain bike.
Raphaël is in charge of the product's technical decisions. Previously specialized in mobile app development, he keeps Gmelius servers switched on and supports the solution's development. During his free time, he gives courses to bachelor degree students at the Université de Savoie in neighbouring France or rides his motorbike through some valleys.

An IT management student with a strong customer service and IT experience, he aims to help and solve problems while always keeping users' satisfaction in mind. He is mostly known for sharing his good mood and addictions to pop-figurines and coffee around the office. If he is not answering queries, you will probably hear his laugh burst out somewhere close by.
