Job in Club Penguin

Nathan Sawatzky was the Director of Community Support at Club Penguin from 2005 to 2011:

In 2005, I was fortunate to join a fresh, naive, and aspirational team about to launch a virtual world for children called Club Penguin. Our little project grew to support a community of millions of children around the world and, in 2007, The Walt Disney Company purchased us. My role in this was to build and lead a team which grew to over 200 support reps located in 6 different countries who supported our users with finesse and creativity, securing our product as a leader in both trust and safety across the industry.
