Habbox Sites Banner

Habbox's departments are divided into teams of staff members dedicated to an individual task or set of tasks. For example, there is the Radio team (HabboxLive) whose roles are based on audio entertainment, or the Articles team whose job it is to provide written content for the main site, and so on. This makes it much easier for all the activity of the staff members to be managed effectively using department managers, and if necessary senior department staff as intermediaries. Previously departments were split into two main categories, Content and Community, with an Assistant General Manager who would oversee each side. Now however all General Managers oversee all departments as needed.

Staff are volunteers in set roles at Habbox. They work together to develop and provide the best available community, entertainment, content, security, advertising techniques plus more! Without the dedicated team of staff, Habbox would not be nearly as successful as it is today.

The whole of Habbox Staff is overseen by the Habbox General Management team; lawrawrrr, FlyingJesus, tbl, ,jamiexo and Rusted!.
