About Fatcat Apps

about-fatcat-apps

 

We make delightful WordPress plugins for small businesses, bloggers & marketers.

We believe that creating great products (easy to use, beautiful) and providing the best possible support drives sales and customer happiness. Our fundamental motivation is to make useful things.

We build small, focused plugins that “do one thing really well”, similar to a small restaurant that only has a few simple (but delightful) dishes on the menu.

Founded by David Hehenberger as a one-person business in 2013, our plugins have been downloaded over 500,000 times and we’ve grown to a team of Four. Fueled by our founder’s love of travel, our team operates completely remotely – each team member is free to live and work from wherever they want.

Our flagship products help you build pricing tables that convertget more email subscribers, or build viral quizzes that drive traffic & email signups. You can view all of our products here.

Our Team

David Hehenberger, Founder

david-250Originally from Austria, David spent a few years traveling the world after graduating from IT school. In order to fund his travels, he started to deep-dive into online marketing, helping dozens of e-commerce & online businesses get more traffic and conversions.

When working on these projects, David was unsatisfied with some of the existing WordPress plugins on the market. To scratch his own itch, David set out to build Fatcat Apps, combining his software engineering and marketing backgrounds.

When he’s not working, David likes to read, meet friends, exercise and travel.
