Dirk C., Chief Product and Technology Officer at Green Jade Games, has taken to social media to mark his one-year anniversary, which happens to coincide with the start-up’s move to new offices.
“I remember walking into the small Ta’ Xbiex office ready to join a startup of five individuals who immediately showcased their incredible drive to revolutionise the industry,” he recalls in the post, adding that, as is the case with any young company, no two days are the same. “Some days, small progress feels like a massive win, and other days where everyone is jumping from one obstacle to the next.”
Admitting that it certainly did get stressful at times, and it can consist of some 80+ hour weeks, the Chief Product and Technology Officer maintains that he has no regrets.
As the team moves into their larger office space, Dirk takes the opportunity to look back on all the great things they’ve accomplished, listing “19 game releases in 12 months; a platform migration; new infrastructure; countless casinos launched; lots of new colleagues who make up the culture we have today.”
“As we head into the next stage, let this serve as a reminder of all the outstanding work done by the team in the past year. So proud to be part of it all,” he concludes.

At the time of writing, his journey has led to £24,849 (€28,665) being raised for mental health charities.
He remarks that people tend to mistakenly view failure as a ‘setback’ or ‘disappointment’.
University degrees still offer a route into industry, but nowadays, there are different ways of getting a dream job.
