About CodeControl

We began with a community of the world’s most talented freelancers and made it our job to match them with world-class projects and companies who need their services. Our freelancers can choose to work on projects that excite them, for as long as they like. And, our clients can hire the best person for the role—not simply whoever is on the payroll.

CodeControl started out with one founder: Marc is a serial entrepreneur who previously built up three startups, worked at Team Europe (the Company Builder of Delivery Hero), and studied at the University of St. Gallen & HEC Paris. He founded CodeControl in 2015, after recognizing that even experienced freelancers struggle to find work: there are currently 40,000 IT vacancies in Germany. 

Today, CodeControl boasts a community of 550 top developers, product designers, and product managers with lengthy experience in startups, agencies, and corporates. We completed more than 180 projects for big corporations as well as established startups, including: Omio, Payworks, Mymuesli, Porsche, Siemens, Lufthansa, and many more.
