Meet the Pride: Vivian Yin

Lionbridge Gaming Senior Test Manager in Beijing, China

As Senior Test Manager for Lionbridge Gaming, Vivian Yin handles all gaming projects that come into China. She’s located in Beijing, where she enjoys working closely with her team, learning new things every day, and biking and spending time with her dog.

Tell us a little about your role at Lionbridge Gaming. What does a typical workday look like for you? 

I am the Senior Test Manager for Lionbridge Gaming based in Beijing. I basically support everything that goes to China for Games: My day starts with calls and ends with calls. I work on developing new possibilities for games, meeting with clients, onboarding projects and cooperating with Lionbridge Gaming folks all over the world to create unique solutions for our customers.

What is the best part of your job?

I’m always learning things from the talented people I work with, and I also enjoy collaborating with people based in Lionbridge’s offices all around the world. Another perk is seeing my name in the credits for games I’ve worked on.

What is the most exciting opportunity on the horizon for your team this year?

We created our new lab in Jinan in April to expand our testing capabilities, and I’m excited for our team to keep growing. By building different offices in China, we’re able to better connect to our customers and strengthen our global network of Lionbridge Gaming offices.

What do you think makes Beijing a great location for a Lionbridge games lab?

Beijing is the capital of China, and its central location makes it a great city for one of Lionbridge’s offices in China. Here, we can get whatever resources we need to succeed while collaborating with our customers all over the world.

What key trend do you see on the Chinese gaming market?

In China, opportunities for games developers are growing rapidly. We’re also seeing more opportunities at the local level for Chinese gamers. China has the largest gaming market in the world, with mobile games making up the largest sector. In 2020, 36.2% of people in China played video games—that number should increase to 53.2% by 2025.

What first made you interested in gaming? Is there any game that is coming out soon that you are particularly excited about?

When I was little, I got a secondhand Nintendo FC. I’ve been addicted to gaming ever since! One big title came out in November which everyone here is excited about—I can’t say its name because I actually worked on that project.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love spending time with my family and my 15-year-old dog. I also enjoy jogging and riding my bike in my free time.

Do you have a favorite local saying?

活到老学到老—It means “You are never too old to learn.”
