Attila is our senior programmer and he is working on the backend services of Sea of Thieves. He changed his career from working in the banking sector and he never regretted it. He lived in a few countries already and he settled in Hungary a few years ago. He loves diving and building smart homes.
How did you feel about changing from the bank sector to the games industry?
It was strange at the very beginning. I’m coming from the banking industry and the processes are way more strict there. I heard that backend is backend everywhere, but the two industries are incomparable.
Working on games is simply more creative. You can even change the rules sometimes and, in general, more laid back and more relaxed. Relaxed, but the right way, infused with a batch of creativity, as always. In banking, you do everything by the book, and all the rules are black and white and there’s not much space for individuality.
I love working here and I never regret leaving my previous industry.
Could you tell us a few things about your role?
Yes, of course. I am a senior programmer, and I’m working on the backend of Sea of Thieves, which covers debugging, solving problems, maintaining the system, and ensuring that all services are running smoothly.
If you could learn anything, what would that be?
I would love to learn everything about healing and curing people, even becoming a surgeon. I was always interested in this, but – unfortunately – I can’t stand needles or blood or the image of a scalpel that goes into the skin and flesh of a human being.
It would be amazing to help other people and being a doctor is a noble way to do that.
Tell us something surprising about yourself.
I worked as a DJ for five years in a club as a paid job. Every Friday and Saturday, I provided music for around 800 people during my university time.
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Somewhere near a beach, in a remote location, definitely not too close to any urban areas. I do diving; hence my choice would be an island—an exotic, tropical place or a small house along any tropical coastlines.
