OUR TEAM MANAGERS

When Gunars Grundstoks and Valdis Pornieks founded IT House in 2005, they were determined to be Latvia’s first design and development firm dedicated to premium quality, strategic communication, and creative innovation. Unlike other firms that rely on the tired templates, IT House creates custom-built solutions from the ground up. We’ve grown since 2005, but our success has never led us astray from our founding principles: high quality, superior client-service, clean coding, and beautiful design.

Gunars Grundstoks
CEO

As a founding partner of IT House, Gunars is the point-of-contact between clients and the technical team. He believes open, honest, and regular communication with clients is the key to a successful project. With nearly a decade and a half of experience in software and website development, Gunars has the chops to code with the best, but currently focuses on effective team management. Gunars is a lifelong learner, spending his free time reading, participating in lectures and workshops, and honing his craft. Apart from IT House, he’s also active in the Baltic Rim and Nordic startup scene as the co-founder of TechHub Riga, the first TechHub expansion outside of London. There Gunars fosters the burgeoning tech community in Latvia, organizing hack-a-thons and Ruby on Rails meetups.

Valdis Pornieks
CTO

Co-founder and technical director of IT House since day 1, Valdis is a leading expert in XHTML, CSS, Javascript, and Ruby on Rails. Even with over a decade of experience in advanced programming, Valdis continues to improve and hone his craft everyday. Currently pursuing his PhD in Computer Science, Valdis leads cutting-edge research on requirement analysis. In his spare time, Valdis lectures on web development at universities and enjoys jazz music.
