5 Questions With…Anastasia Kuprina
5 Questions with Anastasia Kuprina
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
I joined Seriously when I was 19, so I didn’t have a lot of industry experience before that. I started in the games industry by getting an internship in community management at Critical Force Entertainment, and a few years later I joined Seriously as a Player Support Specialist.
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
Currently I work as a data analyst on Best Fiends. My job is to turn numbers into meaningful insights that make the game better. As part of that, I try to make sure our team knows relevant data and can make decisions accordingly. I am also responsible for Seriously’s GDPR compliance.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
I enjoy solving problems and figuring out peculiar trends. Sometimes anomalies are seen in the data and I try my best to figure out the origins of those changes. I also care about privacy and ethics of data, so GDPR work has been interesting and tough but rewarding.
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
I really like Splendid and Bo – I like water and I am very much afraid of insects. Of course, Best Fiends characters are not scary to me, but I can’t look at their “real life” counterparts.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
I picked up Irish dancing some time ago and have been doing that regularly. Also, I’m one of the organisers of codebar Helsinki, a non-profit organisation which promotes software development education for groups underrepresented in the tech industry.
