Quality Assurance

What do you do at the company?

I primarily test market maps both old and new, I aim to test them with the expectation of what consumer should expect in a product so that’s from ensuring guides are clear & understandable and the map is progress-able (no progress related bugs). I also test the occasional seasonal projects that are in development.

 

What got you into this industry?

For me games has been a huge part of my life from my early school days, even till now. I started off with Pokemon and ended up now playing a lot of RPGs & MMOs. I also occasionally play other games like tabletop simulator etc. I went as far as studying games design not sure how much of it was relevant but one things for sure teamwork makes the dream work. A valuable lesson I learnt back in my University days.

 

Fun fact about you

Huge fan of anime, from anime cards games to films & games. At one point I picked up learning Japanese to further my understanding for hobby and cultural reasons.

What do you do at the company?

As a Server Associate, it is my goal to unleash my creative juices into creating new and improving existing Java and Bedrock gaming experiences!

Delivеring those products for our players to enjoy is of course no easy task, requiring strong coordination of diverse talent within our team – artistic Designers, innovative Developers and fellow Server Producers!

Providing strong support to our Anti-Cheat Team as they develop a software ensuring the fairness of our games has been yet another truly exciting and educational experience, and I hugely hope to be able to expand this support of mine to our wider Development Team.

 

What got you into this industry?

My dear cousin, lots of years ago… Still remember looking at her large and childish buildings, all the friendly mobs she had spawned around and feeling scared by monsters even in creative mode!

That’s how I discovered the game and began constantly exploring it myself. I learned about CubeCraft from Youtubers, instantly fell in love with Speed EggWars and became an extremely competitive player with thousands of wins.

My competitive journey eventually came to an end as I felt a greater purpose taking over my time on the network – volunteering. CubeCraft was now no longer a game, but a second family and home, and I felt ready to give my heart to supporting it!

 

Fun fact about you

I daydream, visualize and study… a lot. It’s no surprise I finally have my own Slack channel where I can spread those lessons with my lovely coworkers!

And beware… It would be no surprise if you ever found me working on any secret projects neither… Or if I daydream myself into not even remembering your name short after you’ve introduced yourself.

What do you do at the company?

At Ziax I stand in for the general management of the skin artist team. Assigning projects to individual artist, requesting renders for on the marketplace, checking-in with the skin artists and just general skin management for the Marketplace is all on my daily tasks list.

 

What got you into this industry?

Since the beginning of me buying Minecraft to play on multiplayer worlds I was obsessed with everything happening behind the screens and games. Not only the visible things got me interested but also everything you couldn’t see as a normal player on a network going from Marketplace management to the vision of the company behind the network. That’s the reason why I dived deeper into the Ziax network!

 

Fun fact about you

During the weekends or evenings you can find me on a lot of events. Not to party, but to perform as a circus entertainer or work as a junior freelance event manager.

What do you do at the company?

As a Server Associate Producer and Creative Writer, I work with the Server Team to plan new updates and check-in with the community to figure out what they want to see on the network. Next to that, I create and work out storylines for Server and Marketplace-related content!

 

What got you into this industry?

Back when I was only 11 years old, I started playing Minecraft. I was obsessed with the games, the way they worked, but most importantly, playing them together with friends. Only a few years later when I started to learn English, I became obsessed with writing short stories in that language. Lots of feedback and stories later, I find myself in this position, learning new things and meeting new people every single day, being as happy as I can be!

 

Fun fact about you

Back in 2017, I used to train police dogs!
