Mark Staveley

Senior Software Development Test Engineer, Microsoft

Mark worked for a year and a half, without being able to tell his family what he was working on. The top secret project was in fact Microsoft’s Xbox One.

Working on something such as Xbox One is a once in a lifetime opportunity – “these will be coming into your living room” - and it’s an opportunity, he says, which likely would not have happened if he had never studied at Waikato University.

“Waikato has a really neat way of capturing that real Kiwi innovation and creative spirit,” he says.
