our people
  • heo
    inspirational leader

    heo can't really speak for herself but if she could, she'd say the food in our office is above average, and her pillow is quite nice, and most of the people smell ok.

  • bryan pelz

    founder & ceo

    i was the founding ceo of vng, the top game producer and publisher in vietnam. i've spent twenty-five years in games, media, and AI. i've also served on the boards of fpt software, vietnamworks, and pizza 4Ps.

  • benoit godde
    artistic director

    after a few years of practicing design and HTML, i fell into the wonderful world of the movies as a graphic designer and concept artist. being a great fan of video games, it was natural for me to join the big family of video games.

    i met bryan in my past life working as a website designer. i see bootloader as a new adventure, which i believe is different and very promising.

  • duhwee
    product leader

    my journey into product management can be described as unorthodox. though unintentional, i love what I do especially geeking over data and interactive graphs.


    i'm the resident clown wherever i go. other than that, you can find me dancing my way into meetings or just the bathroom.


    i was trying to break into deep tech. and a life-long friend approached me with an opportunity to work on a mixed reality experience. the rest is history.

  • le thi bich tuyen
    3d artist

    i became a 3D artist because i fell in love with virtual characters as a little girl. and I am living my dream working on them at bootloader.


    i am adaptable, enthusiastic and responsible.


    i joined bootloader because it has a strong team and the project is new and interesting to me. i want to work and learn from my colleagues.

  • vo thi thanh
    3d artist

    i'm an industrial designer by training. so working on the virtual world challenges my old way of looking at things.

  • pham thi thanh thu
    3d artist

    i chose 3D art, fueled by my passion to express myself.

  • nguyen le hoang minh
    head of finance

    minh doesn't actually say much.

  • vo hoang my
    executive assistant

    i'm introverted and a bit careless. yet my work requires me to be precise and communicative. and I'm darn good at it.


    i'm an avid reader so i usually get lost in whichever world my books transport me to.


    the product is extremely intriguing to me. and bootloader pays well :)
