Thomas Barth (Tommy) has been working in games services for over 12 years and, like many young aspiring professionals, he started in the field of quality assurance (QA) to get a foot in the door of the industry. Since then, he leveled up from German QA tester to test lead, to project manager, to localization quality assurance (LQA) manager and most recently to LQA director at the global games services provider Keywords Studios. Throughout his career, Tommy had the chance to work with brilliant client partners from all sectors of the industry (developers, publishers and hardware manufacturers), provide and supervise testing for games of all genres and sizes, and on all platforms (from consoles to mobile, to the latest and greatest in virtual and augmented reality). He is passionate about the industry and believes that we are better together. Tommy also has a deep love for games and interactive entertainment and feels that all gamers around the world should have the same amazing and immersive experience, no matter which language they speak and play games in. Helping people succeed gives him energy and is one of his key drives as a professional.
