W ❤ Games is one-day-conference in Helsinki that focuses on women in games and tech development. “W” stands for women but also for “we” as we people, we who play and make games, we of all backgrounds and interests that games bring together and make all differences disappear!
The first conference took place on the 15th of November 2019 at NewCo Helsinki.

I’m currently an Associate Live Ops Manager at Ubisoft RedLynx. I first started out as a game tester in Ubisoft Bucharest, where I found my passion while working on Ghost Recon: Wildlands by specializing in testing methodologies for the game store, game events, and the player’s experience with monetization. Three years ago, I moved to Helsinki to pursue my newfound passion at Ubisoft RedLynx. Nowadays, I spend my days ensuring that South Park: Phone Destroyer’s players have the best live game experience possible and making sure they are engaged with our game for years to come, as well as working towards ethical game monetization.
