Meet our team
Since our creation in 2016, the Deedmob family has spread well and far beyond the Oxford dorms. Now residing in our bright office in the heart of Amsterdam-Oost, our full-timers and interns are working hard to organise the world's good Deeds.

Gerbrand is the most studious member of the Deedmob team. After growing up on a farm in the east of the Netherlands, he studied Medicine, Economics, and is now pursuing a degree in Political Science. With this unique background Gerbrand brings a variety of different perspectives to the table when helping our partners achieve their social impact goals - whether they are local governments, large corporates, or social organisations.
Ty has been programming since he was only 10 years old. Being an avid fan of gaming and the communities around it, he worked on his first project modding for an open-source game, which he later on contributed to. He also developed a gaming community site.
