About Developers from Brno
We are a small and young company established in 2010 by Jan, Marek and Petr. Our philosophy is that small means efficient, flexible, and more effective than big corporations. If you do business with us, you speak directly to the owners and the decision is always just a phone call away.
Developers work in the heart of Brno downtown in a beautiful art-nouveau building from the late 19th century and enjoy an unlimited supply of good coffee, brain nutrients like chocolate, nuts and fruit. We provide a sleep lounge with sofa and bean bags for productivity naps.
How we got started
Year 2010, the beginning of a hot summer. A small creative agency, where all three Kurzor founders were employed, was facing a bankrupcy. We decided it was time to stand on our own feet and start our own company on a simple principle: provide only the services we can deliver in high quality and say no to distractions in a form of nice-to-have projects for which we did not have enough competencies.
Our prime type of a project was building websites at the beginning. Complemented by a marketing strategy, UX, user testing and other additional services, to give our clients not just a pretty website, but a fine-tuned business tool.
In 2012 we grew over and beyond the borders of the Czech market and started working for clients in Germany, Ireland, UK and the U.S. Projects evolved into more complicated websites and gradually into web applications fot the most part.
Since then, we started to advance our company towards outsourcing management and providing developers to any corner of the world and serving clients in various countries.

Brno is a prominent IT city in the Central Europe region thanks to vast number of skilled people. “We have access to brilliant engineering and research talent,” said AVG’s chief executive, J.R. Smith. Read more.
These days Brno houses: IBM, Red Hat, NetSuite, SolarWinds, AVG, Avast, Infosys, 2K, Acer, GigaByte technology, Honeywell Controls, FEI, Siemens, Minolta, Daikin Industries, Lufthansa, Accenture, Monster, Kiwi.com and many more.
Brno can be accessed within a two-hour drive from Vienna or Prague, enjoyes a relaxed atmosphere and rides on a young vibe - the fact that 25% of the population are students from local universities certainly has to do something with that. The cost of the best local brews at no more than €2 per pint also helps, making business trips far more entertaining.
The current team is 15-strong and grows from quarter to quarter. Read more about Petr, Marek and Jan, who are equal owners and operating executives at Kurzor:
Petr Gogolín / Sales and Marketing
Petr earned his masters in strategic management at Nottingham Trent University (UK). He went into business in high school already, gaining experience from leading Czech entrepreneurs. He is responsible for strategy, sales and spreading unconventional wisdom about the benefits of sleep and beer at work.
Petr loves ultramarathons, exploring new food (the last one was raw whale, he recommends it!) and reading biographies of great statesmen and entrepreneurs.
Marek Gach / Head of development
Marek earned his masters in applied information science and then went for a doctorate. Two years later he realized that business is more fun and now he is our head of development. His core competencies are PHP development, project management and white-hat hacking security of Czech leading websites.
Marek loves good wine, women, Thai box – don't be alarmed by an occasional black eye while on Skype - and singing.
Jan Malý / Websites and UX
Jan earned his masters in electrical engineering and spent another four years in academia. He is co-author of several published international research papers. His competencies include interaction design, usability and overseeing the seamless process of website creation.
