Wooga started in 2009 which is the same year i started working there and we’ve both come a long way. Many ups and downs formed the company which was founded by Jens Begemann (CEO), Patrick Paulisch (Co-founder) and Philipp Moeser (CTO) in Berlin/Germany. Jens Begemann directed the company as CEO for over 11 years handing over the CEO role to Nai Chang in Q1 of 2020.
