Meet our founders:
Our awesome people!
We have around 100 people working at our Karlsruhe and Frankfurt offices. Meet just a few team members who make flaregames such a top place to work…
|Marlene Kegel, QA Manager
Marlene joined the company in 2012 after working as a high school teacher in Kehl near Strasbourg, lecturing in German, Ethics and Philosophy. While Marlene began her flaregames journey as a member of the HR team, she later deciding to tackle a new challenge, building a “Best of Breed” Product Quality team from scratch. Today, flaregames QA is an agile team of over 20 experienced testers, QA specialists and QA leads. As Marlene prepares for maternity leave (accepting yet another new challenge!), the QA team, now populated with highly passionate and motivated individuals, look to continue the tradition of excellence that she and others began!
