Living my life in the city of creativity: Amsterdam. I breath design and love doing it every day. When there is time left I’m working on start-ups and helping others with them.

Sven Kaptein
Partner & CTO

I’m Sven, living in a small village close to Amsterdam, happily married with the most awesome woman in the world and proud father of a daughter and foster-daughter. I’ve always had a love affair with computers and internet and made it my job to run websites silky smooth. For Marsmedia I manage the development projects. When I do have the spare time, I love to develop new features.

Kiki the Pug
office entertainer

My two biggest passions are eating and cuddling. It makes me super happy to be constantly with the people I love, especially when I get food from them. They say I'm pretty lazy, but I like to do things the way I do. You say stubbornly? No, smart! What I do not like? Walks through the cold and rain - bah. To be part of Marsmedia is fantastic, especially because I get so much love for it. I'm living the dream.

Design & Marketing Manager

After my working at Quince, I spent some time as in-house designer and advisor at several small and big companies. Then one day Michel asked me to join him and the team at Marsmedia. The daily lunch is awesome so haven’t looked back ever since ;) Specialties are design and marketing.

Luuk van Hoogstraaten
Producer & Marketeer

Amsterdam and my boyfriend are the two loves of my life. Spending my time in the gym, wandering through town and working in the exciting online world. At Marsmedia I’m responsible for our website and constant growth of Marsmedia. Through working along and starting up own brands, I’ve gained a lot of interest and knowledge in company development and growth hacking.

Toska Kieft

When I am not at my computer for work, you can find me at my computer for fun! Next to being a web developer, I enjoy listening to and making music, cycling while listening to a podcast and, lo and behold, social interaction! Working with a creative team, knowing my role in process, executing the plan with precision: that is what my work is about.

Benoit Le Grasse
Web developer

A great art enthusiast since my childhood, I am specialized in photography, webdesign and web development. After living in Nelson, New Zealand and in Melbourne, Australia for 3 years, I was able to extend my experience in these industries and use this same opportunity to become bilingual. Perfectionist at heart, I am a patient and creative person with a lot to offer and able to adapt to the ever-changing environments of today.

Strateeg & Online Marketeer

Hi my name is Oscar I transformed my hobby into a job :-). Being an SEO enthusiast and a specialist in Google Ads I love to help and grow business through data driven online marketing. I live in Amsterdam with my girlfriend and two awesome daughters Lauren and Louise. When not at work I enjoy great food and a relaxing beer with friends and family.


I'm Martijn! I'm from Gouda and am a UX design intern at Marsmedia. I think it's very important for people to have a good experience with whatever they're doing or experiencing. This is why I decided to become a UX designer. Besides design I also really like to listen to indie music, watch Ghibli movies and play or watch videogames.
