Mike Helker

Senior QA Engineer

Mike Helker

If it ain't broke, fix it. Perfection is my goal as Quality Assurance Engineer at Vokal. After nearly a decade working in the gaming industry in Tech Support, Quality and Production, I've evolved into a passionate scrutineer of software development.

What drives you?

I am a lover of all things digital, and flourish in environments that allow me to peer into the creative process of the digital world.

Who or what inspires you?

Family and being a gamer. My family inspires me to be good; to others and to myself. Playing a new innovative game that shatters the mold of a genre inspires me to search for my own way to be creative and share those ideas with others.

What’s something surprising about you?

One time I accepted a job in Chicago without ever having been there.

As a teenager, I frequently performed as a street musician in Seattle to make some extra cash.

What is your favorite video game?

I'd say Halo 2 due to the nostalgia of receiving and delivering my first digital tea bag online.
