Mathias is nominated by Ole Teglbjærg, Director of Production and co-founder at Flashbulb Games with the following motivation:
Mathias joined Flashbulb in Spring of 2021 to help us build and solidify our backend technology for both Trailmakers and Rubber Bandits. A big task for someone who had never worked in games before.
At the time he was working at a webservice company, creating a trash collecting system for the Danish communes. But developing trash collecting systems was not was not what he had dreamed of when he decided to study computer science. So after a few years in trash he chose to pursue game development and we are glad he did. Despite his lack of experience Mathias exceeded our expectations. He quickly wrapped his head around our technology and started contributing. He is thorough and creative and even though he has only been in games for 10 months he is the kind of person who takes on responsibility and delivers no matter what challenge he is facing. Mathias has contributed greatly in releasing Rubber Bandits and the backend that makes online play possible. We are excited to see what his future holds for him, and we are proud to have him on our team. As a backend developer you rarely get much spotlight in game development, but if anyone deserves it, it is Mathias.
