PLITCH Developer MegaDev Promotes Markus Schaal to Managing Director.
Today, MegaDev Gmbh — the inventive developers behind PLITCH, software which enables players to tailor their single-player video game experiences — are pleased to announce the promotion of COO Markus Schaal to the position of Managing Director. Together with PLITCH co-founder Robert Maroschik, Markus will supervise all significant projects in addition to leading the many technical and product vision aspects of PLITCH as he transitions to being one of the main faces of the company.
Markus began working at MegaDev in 2016 as an entry-level SEO content specialist and trainer/video game tester. Starting at the very bottom of the company ladder, Markus’ tireless initiative and work ethic led him to climb through the ranks quickly, working his way from social media and SEO optimization to a three-month stint as marketing manager in 2017. From there Markus returned to operations, this time as the Head of Content and then as COO, where he has worked until this most recent promotion.
Markus joins PLITCH co-founder and CEO Robert Maroschik as fellow co-director, in a time where MegaDev is experiencing massive growth of its PLITCH platform due in part to the $1.9 million Series A funding secured at the end of 2020.

Together with Maroschik, Markus will co-supervise all significant projects as he transitions to being one of the main faces of MegaDev and PLITCH.

In order to achieve his vision, Markus has a number of additional goals which he aims to reach in the next couple of years.
