5: Jared Steffes – Co-Founder and CRO of Muxy
My next guest on The Shobeir Show is Jared Steffes, who goes by EPICPOWER, FakeBusy, and JaredVIP. Jared convinced his college, the University of DePaul, to start a Video Game Degree program and a fun Gaming Lan center in The Loop in Chicago.
Jared Steffes is a farm boy near Chicago who became a gamer early and made his very first game in kindergarten. Jared also worked on gaming for severe matters like anti-terrorism.
Jared is the Co-Founder and CRO of Muxy, a platform that has powered interactive experiences for over 160m viewers on Twitch. Muxy concentrate on building the tools necessary for game developers to add audience interactivity to their games. Jared previously was a Producer of the Team NVIDIA Twitch.TV channel, Product Manager at GetBetz, Project Manager at Furywing Inc, Producer of Nibletz.com, and Co-Founder of Tap Me, a VC-backed mobile in-game advertising solution.
Jared and I enjoyed talking about gaming, memes, Austin, studying stories during college, critter hunting, and massive hog (AKA huge 3rd leg). Enjoy listening to the full podcast.
