Meet Belia Portillo! Thanks to Belia, we can officially call our marketing team a TEAM… of two. It still counts! Belia is the Marketing Manager at Jackbox, focused specifically on our community engagement and improving the customer experience for our fans. As you may have guessed, things got a bit hectic at Jackbox Games this spring and having Belia join us in the midst of the chaos to help restore order has been a huge help. Fun fact: Belia is one of our favorite Jackbox team members that we’ve never met in person!
You can find Belia in our Discord supporting our mods or jumping on a call with a potential partner to explore collaboration ideas. Read on to learn more about Belia!
What brought you to Jackbox Games?
I’ve been a longtime fan of Jackbox, often being the one who brings up playing at parties or seeking out games at conventions. I’ve been an avid gamer since childhood, and Jackbox games really stood out to me as I’m very fond of the interactive and community oriented experience behind gaming. I’ve been with Jackbox since April 2020.
What is your favorite thing about being on the marketing team at Jackbox?
One of my favorite things about what I do is the community management aspect of my role. Whether that’s combing through amazing fan art, engaging with Twitch streamers, or responding to questions through social media, the fanbase is always close to my heart.
Editor’s Note: Belia spearheaded the creation of the Jackbox Twitch Team! Check it out here.
What do you enjoy most about working at Jackbox?
I was hired on in the midst of a global pandemic, so I haven’t had the opportunity to meet anyone in person. However, based on my virtual interactions with the company and it’s staff, I can already tell that everyone is kind, dedicated, attentive, hilarious, and an absolute dream to work with.
Do you have a favorite Jackbox game?
I’m probably going to have to say Tee K.O. It has everything! Drawing, the ability to get your creative juices flowing, and of course taking home your creations at the end of it.
What might surprise people about working at Jackbox?
Share a fun fact about yourself! Or else!
I play competitively in a 10-player esport called Killer Queen, and during normal non-pandemic times, I travel to participate in tournaments where occasionally my team wins.
