Who you are:
As a human, you’re a visionary explorer, a pursuer of fun, and focused on building community. You see an opportunity within games to do more and to have more than “just a job”. You’ve had unique experiences both at work and personally that have expanded your curiosities to seek the root of a problem, to seek out issues, and work with people to explore solutions! Your experiences have made you who you are, and that has led to you understanding the importance of diversity in both thinking and in people. Oh, and games… You may like those, too!
You lead with humility in all that you do. Your passion and expertise help build trust and employee happiness across the organization. You’re involved with a number of projects and initiatives that promote community, collaboration, and efficiency so team members feel connected to each other and their work.
