PikPokPeople is an ongoing set of profiles highlighting how great the staff are here at PikPok. Bronwyn is a recent addition to our team, and a big part of her role is helping make our games super fun to play!
Job title: Junior Games User Researcher
What do you actually do:
I play, research and analyse games. So that means I watch people play games and I improve the usability and minimize frustration of the game. Or I play games myself and analyse what they do and why. My findings then get shown to others in the company to help improve our processes and basic design foundations. Essentially I play and help improve games. It’s awesome.
Best part about working for PikPok:
The people here are fantastic and very passionate about their work. I love being able to work with everyone in the company as well as getting the excuse to play my favorite games as ‘research’.
How does an average day go for you:
I start the day with morning stand ups, then go grab a coffee. When I get back I’ll play some games and write up some reports or presentations. I’m available to help anyone who needs me so potentially a few meetings or discussions. If I am lucky I will host some play test sessions (watch people playing a game). Afterwards I’ll write a report on my observations and present it to the team working on the game.
What do you do for fun:
Running and doing weights at the gym, reading a book in the sun with a tea and homemade biscuit or playing video games.
