Northify is located in the new Boden Game Club environment at Boden Business Park.
The company was founded in the summer of 2021 and is Sweden’s first and only company that works with testing and quality assurance (QA) of games, but also other digital apps and services from companies in the Nordic market on a daily basis. In addition to customer reporting and bug analysis, a new creative element was added to the company this spring. They began a venture into Roblox.
Mattias Bergqvist, CEO Northify.
– Today is the first day of the summer holidays for many young people, but here it’s the first day in a real game studio for our first two holiday workers! We will have two holiday workers per period during the summer to see how it works in a gaming company and to try out game creation themselves. My hope is that this kind of holiday work can motivate and inspire our future developers who are still in primary school, but who see the opportunity to work in this kind of digital creation after school, something that has long been thought to be possible only in our larger cities or abroad. The gambling industry is here now and it is getting bigger and stronger every year.
For those unfamiliar with the gaming giant Roblox, it is now one of the largest gaming platforms in the world. In addition to the platform, Roblox has also developed a program that allows their users to create their own games. Just as we set up personal profiles on social media, Roblox lets you create your own avatar to add friends, share games and hang out. Roblox is largely aimed at younger children. Players can chat with each other, but there are filters against coarse language. You can control who can send messages or invite people to play. In April 2021, Roblox was reported to have 202 million monthly active users.
