Since our Squid Tank keeps growing and changing, we think it’s time for another Meet the Squids interview! In this issue, we’re talking with Matt Williams, a Quality Assurance (QA) Analyst who might belong to TurboSquid’s secret society, The League of Matts. He also explains just what a QA Analyst does and shows us his favorite model in the TS catalog.
Let’s get the elephant out of the room. With all the Matts in this office, you must have a nickname. What is it, and how did you get it?
My parents gave me the nickname “Moozer” when I was a baby because I would mooch off of everyone’s plate at the dinner table. I was also an extremely fat baby, like a blob of ooze. So, they put moocher and ooze together and came up with Moozer.
You are currently the fifth Matt on the TurboSquid roster. Is there a League of Matts we don’t know about? Are you all in a secret pact to work at TS together? Do you guys have a newsletter?
I’d like to plead the fifth on all accounts.
Good answer. (Ed. note: We are onto you guys.)
What do you do with your time outside of work?
My time outside of work is spent studying programming and playing video games and intramural sports. I’m also involved with the Game Developers Meetup, where a bunch of local indie game developers meet up, grab drinks, and show off what they’ve been working on. You should come check it out!
What do you do as a TurboSquid QA Analyst?
On a typical day, I test the stability and functionality of websites, write test plans, and assist the developers in resolving any found issues.
What is your favorite thing about working here?
My favorite thing about working at TurboSquid would have to be all my fellow squids. All the employees are friendly, helpful, fun, and professional.
Do you have a favorite TurboSquid model?[This model by AleJaouhari] is probably not the most intricate or extravagant model in the TurboSquid catalog, but it’s my all time favorite band. If there’s a band I would follow across the country, it would be Daft Punk or Justice.
One more thing! What’s your favorite movie?
The Big Lebowski or The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.
