About Us

When Arthur, Flexpat’s co-founder, was deciding which way to go after his graduation, he felt that he wasn’t ready to give up traveling and settle for a regular career. After all, it is hard to get back to “reality” once the travel bug bites you. He turned to Georgi, an experienced problem solver whom he knew for a long time. They were determined to enable passionate people to live, work, and learn from anywhere. People who want to live on their own terms, all while being surrounded by like-minded people.

So they created Flexpat, the answer to all those who want to have the benefits of an employee while working freely on projects from across the globe. Flexpat is building a community for those who want to grow personally and professionally by making remote work the new norm. Since Flexpat’s inception in late 2016, ten other travel enthusiasts joined the team to turn universal location independence into reality. From our office in Rotterdam (NL), the Flexpat team is working hard to make remote work a common lifestyle.

Having visited 30+ countries and eaten duck tongue and guinea pig, Arthur shows he is all about discovering the unknown. A natural risk-taker, he pushes the boundaries with snowboarding, wakeboarding, and surfing. Arthur didn’t like any job, so he created his own. Previously, he worked in several VCs, advised a range of startups, and worked in sales for Rocket Internet.



At different points, Georgi has been a martial arts competitor, professional poker player, online community builder, theoretical physicist, game theorist, investment banker, and management and startup consultant. He is always curious, and some might even say obsessed, with learning new things -- as if the earth would stop turning if he stops thinking. He loves to travel the world together with his wife, and they are always planning on where to go next.



David has cultivated a lifelong compulsion for adventure. This has taken him across eight countries and some 14+ individual cities in both hemispheres. Prior to Flexpat, David has spent four years and counting as a flexpat, consulting for startups all around the world. An avid believer in the inevitability of ubiquitous location-independence for all professionals, David brings over a decade of experience to the front lines of this rapidly growing revolution.



A Bulgarian girl with a German Abitur who ended up in the Netherlands. Armed with a media and a marketing degree, Gerry has helped numerous international start-ups find their true identity and voice. Her wizardry consists of the art and craft of language paired with strategic out-of-the-box thinking. Obviously bitten by the travel bug, Gerry experienced her biggest adventure two years ago when she crossed half Asia on flip-flops.



An economics student, Adnah is forever fascinated by the ‘why’ – the causal factor - of things. She is always on the lookout for what makes people tick. Speaking of which, some things that make her tick are languages, literature, art history, fashion and standing up for what is right! Growing up on three continents and in ten schools, meeting new people and embracing different cultures have been always been a part of Adnah’s identity. As she grew older, she realized the immense value and learning these multicultural experiences have added to her life and is excited to help others discover them as well!



As an organizational psychologist, Laura is all about strategy. No greatness can be achieved from the comfort zone of daily routine, as innovation comes with daring decisions, which she is not afraid to make to change the status quo. For Laura, traveling is the perfect way to get to know more and more of who she is, in the ever-changing reflection of different cultures, from Brazil to Morocco to good ol’ Europe.



Born with a natural drive for change and adventures, frequently moving around and travelling is a natural thing for Lea. After all, there is no better feeling than hiking to 3200 meters and enjoying the view. Always striving to improve herself, she uses her proactive attitude to critically assess and choose the best strategies and put them into practice. If she wasn’t working for Flexpat trying to change the world, Lea would be happy running a puppy hotel.



Elena has a high appreciation for true beauty – whether it's found in places, people's faces, or souls. She has her very own collection of memories and experiences and takes every chance to expand it. Elena believes that a smile can turn around one’s day, and sees Flexpat as a way to bring more and more smiles to flexpats around the globe. With her inherent positivity, she always finds a way to make everyone's day a little brighter.



For some, being called a "full-time geek" is an insult. For others, it's a badge of honor. Erik belongs to the latter. Apart from "geeking" (is it verb?), Erik loves sailing with his boat, top speed 80km/h, and hanging out with friends. Prior to Flexpat, Erik co-founded a few open source projects and gained proper DevOps experience in various companies.

Niklas is the cooking enthusiast on the team. Having lived in four countries over the past few years has certainly contributed to the variety of his cuisine. Besides treating his body and soul with delicious food and drinks, Niklas loves playing football and tennis. He gained a significant portion of his startup experience in Berlin and has joined Flexpat to help us bring remote work to the world. Also, he used to have goats... cause they’re cooler than dogs.



A humble man, Alessandro believes that he’s the world’s first accent-free Italian who is both a nomadic legal expert and kitesurf instructor. He left the beaten path in his early twenties for the complexities of international law. He spent time all over the world and made remarkable, lifelong friends. His dream day starts with a skate to the office, an insane amount of passionate work, a reading break – perhaps about the latest discoveries in dolphin communication – and an espresso. High on caffeine, he would head out for a kitesurfing session, then end his day staring at the sunset wishing he knew how to write sappy poetry.



With no clue what to study after finishing high school, Linda moved to California to follow a minor in International Business. From this moment, she fell in love with the Cali ‘free of mind spirit’ and the american sports culture. Now after a bachelor in Economics and Law, she is trying to bring this open-minded knowledge to Flexpat, while planning her next travel adventures, which she always likes to share with her friends.
