Moments from our history
Check out some of the key moments from our short but vibrant history.
With years of experience in agency leadership, design and education, Tin joined us in a mission to help grow our brand.
In May 2014 we`ve been awarded with Golden Balance Sheet, a recognition from the Croatian Financial Agency as the best performing IT company. Deloitte noticed us even sooner – in August 2013 we`ve received their Technology Fast 50 CE recognition as one of top 50 fastest growing IT companies in Central Europe.
During 2012 and 2013 we`ve focused our resources to help develop RealPlayer Cloud. So in 2014, Real Networks acquired a small dedicated team of developers and designers from Five Minutes, and formed a new development center in Croatia.
We established a strategic partnership with Rhapsody / Napster, a premium subscription music streaming service. Our teams of developers, designers, and QA engineers are developing and enhancing Rhapsody products across multiple mobile and web platforms. Rock on!
Decided to spend better part of our saturdays building awesome things for fun. We built Cipele46 this way, which is a donations platform website for a non-profit org.
With 44 of us, the old place was getting cramped, so we moved into a bigger location, dedicating extra space to various gaming activities (table tennis!)
We’ve been focusing on US market before, but now we’ve established physical presence through office in New York. SoHo galleries, shops, restaurants and startups, here we come!
Previous CEO and founder Viktor Marohnić took role of ShoutEm CEO, so a new guy, Luka Abrus steps in to lead Five.
Our in-house product ShoutEm begun life at Five, grew and pivoted, attracted financial support, received a VC investment and eventually, parted ways to form a NY-based, global product company.
Grew in size, moved into nearby office, and those afterwork drinks started to get crowded. Exicting times!
We grew up using Real Player, and then eventually partnered with Real Networks on developing their next-gen products! Our developers, testers and designers joined forces with several Real Networks` product teams in a partnership that would continue for 6 years.
We`ve been obsessed with quality since the beginning, so we started our office in Osijek, Croatia, and founded quality assurance excellence center. It has grown since to a dozen of STE`s, SDET`s and support staff.
Pticica, our photo sharing community, won a trip to Microsoft MIX Conference in Las Vegas as the best Croatian web site. In the same year we launched social network Trosjed – it was the dawn of social networking and we ruled the Croatian web space with gazillion users, but along came Facebook and ruined our party.
The name was chosen as a personal goal for running an average kilometer during a marathon. We might have gained a few pounds over the years, but we still run!
