In celebration of International Women’s Day, Abelia and ODA have listed the 50 leading women in technology in Norway, with Nordic Game 2018 speaker Anette Staloy from Dirtybit games studio in Bergen among the top innovators on this prestigious list.
The listing aims to showcase the career possibilities in tech and to inspire more women to technology-orientated educational programs and professions by putting the spotlight on talented female role models in the field.
“I feel very honored to be on the list and to be highlighted as a role model, and at the same time very proud of the whole team at Dirtybit,” says Anette Staloy. “What we achieve together every day is what enables me to be out there to tell the story about the success of the company. We have been working hard to make the games industry and its potential more visible to both governments and other industries in Norway, and I am proud to be a representative for the Norwegian games industry.”
Dirtybit was established in 2011 and the studio is focused on multiplayer games for mobile. Titles in their Fun Run series have been downloaded over 100 million times worldwide.
Anette Staloy joined Dirtybit in 2015, and has in total 15 years of tech experience in various roles ranging from sales, recruiting, project management, consultancy, marketing and business development.
“I hope that more people will realise that there are a lot of exciting roles in tech, and particularly in games,” adds Anette Staloy. “I have had many interesting jobs, but (working at) Dirtybit is by far the best job I have ever had! We also have 40 per cent women in our team.”
