Biking, knäckebröd, and programming: Sven Rademarkers’ move to Sweden and Massive has proved more interesting than he could ever dream of. Read his story in this article!
As a part of the Snowdrop team, programmer Sven Rademarkers’ job includes helping other projects and games to achieve their goals using the engine. He was initially drawn to Massive’s craftsmanship, eye for detail, and the will to make something perfect.
“It’s so great to see how passionate everyone here is about the things we are doing. Also, it’s not your ordinary 9 to 5 job, which I really like.”
Compared to Sven’s previous job, working at Massive has proven to be very different.
“My previous job was medical, which means that I needed to follow strict rules and processes. Coming to Massive was a huge change from that. Here, you basically do what needs to be done to get to the end goal – to make the best game ever.”
Sven’s favorite thing about working at Massive is the family feel, and how everybody contributes and does their best to make the best game possible.
“It’s really cool to see the passion and focus that goes in to making the games a success.”
After work hours, Sven likes to hop on his bike for a ride in the Scanian landscape.
“It’s a way for me to kind of conclude my day. Biking means I can shut off my brain and get rid of some excess energy. And I love being outside too.”
When Sven moved to Sweden 6 months ago to start work at Massive, the reactions from his friends and family has two things in common: IKEA and “knäckebröd” (crisp bread).
“I just remember going to the supermarket for the first time here in Malmö, and I see this aisle full of knäckebröd – I just had to laugh!”
