5 Questions With…Rion Williams
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
I was previously at NaturalMotion’s Oxford office in the UK, where I initially started out in a six-month contract Quality Assurance (QA) tester role. I ultimately ended up as the Senior Submissions and Release manager, working across both NaturalMotion and Zynga games. When I started, the iPhone 3G had just been released…so I guess you could say I’ve been in mobile games for a very long time now!
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
I’m the Senior QA Coordinator for Best Fiends, which means I’m responsible for ensuring the quality of the game, and coordinating with the awesome people and services that help me achieve that task. Our job is to make sure you have the best and smoothest experience while playing Best Fiends and that it is the best game it can be!
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is working on something I genuinely care about and enjoy playing, alongside like-minded people. I’ve been a fan of Best Fiends for YEARS and have been playing since it launched back in 2014. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to come to Seriously and help make the game even better for other fans like me!
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
Definitely Lapoleon! No other Fiend can express having an existential crisis while still looking so lovable. Plus, he looks so dapper in his thimble crown!
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
Games and music are my two passions. So when I’m not playing games, I’m playing guitar, writing songs or listening to new music. I think if I wasn’t working in the gaming industry, I would likely be working in the music industry instead.
