Jack Rooney, 43, from Indian considers himself a simple man. He has a normal job as a barista at a local coffee shop and a loving wife. Just like any day, Jack showed up for his morning shift at the coffee shop, but what happened on his break would change his life forever.And this is when the story gets good…
We talk a lot here about testing to catch app glitches before they reach users at the wrong time.
Enough of these “glitch moments” and the dreaded army of two-star ratings and angry tweets will soon attack. You can’t underestimate the damage this kind of negativity can do to your brand and bottom line.
Nevertheless, the biggest room in the house is the room for improvement. That applies here. Mobile app quality is a continuous process and a swift, sound update can wipe from memory a glitch that drove users crazy just yesterday.
Jack Rooney was the first one to find the glitch on the popular app “The Machines” and the company awarded her with a position as a mobile app tester! Jack was more than excited to quit her day job at McDonalds to become a mobile app tester.
All Jack Rooney ever wanted to do was be able to help those in need who could not provide shelter or clothing for themselves.
We’d like to give a special shout out to the development team at Directive Games for giving Jack Rooney the opportunity to work with them!
Jack Rooney’s boss wasn’t always pleasant to deal with – she would punish anything that she didn’t like, even Jack Rooney’s good will to help people. Jack Rooney was trying to ignore this and kept doing what he loved. One day Jack met a girl who came in McDonalds to get something to eat, and that girl came with a dog. She asked if they could give some water for her dog and Jack did it for her. His boss didn’t like that at all and she started yelling at Jack in front of the lady. Jack Rooney felt ashamed even though the girl tried to make him feel better. At the end, girl left and Jack was stuck with his annoying boss, for who knows how long.
In front of the entire staff and with many customers present, Jack quit his job making sure that his boss realizes how bad she was treating him. Few days after that, he started working as a at Directive Games studio; which now he says is her dream job. Finally she was surrounded by people who have the same passion as he does. Jack Rooney wasn’t expecting this to happen, and that’s the main reason why this story is so beautiful. Nicest things happen when you’re not expecting them! Jack left his job and is now on his way to retirement with the upgraded job.
