Habbox was founded in the Summer of 2003 by Mizki. Habbox started out as a small project for Mizki but she soon started to realise that she needed other people to help her with the site. This is where Sierk came to learn of Habbox and he and Mizki soon became good friends. As Sierk took more of a development role for the site, he was then handed the reins and eventually full ownership of the site, where he has stayed ever since. In late 2009 Jin became Co-Owner of Habbox after many years working at the site, as Sierk no longer took an active role in the running of Habbox. Habbox consists of Habbox.com, Habbox Forum and new to 2012, Habbox Wiki.

Habbox is run by a team of staff across many departments. The co-owners Sierk (Co-Owner) and Jin (Co-Owner) are inactive and the management of the site is done by the three General Managers, lawrawrrr (Site), ozad (Campaigns) and FlyingJesus (Community).

Departments at Habbox

The Habbox has several departments without which it would not be able to operate, each department fulfils a key role within the collective. The departments include; the Help Desk, Events, Rare Values, Competitions, Content Design (and Site Coders), Forum Moderators, Articles, Graphics and HabboxLive. Although each department does not have the same involvement with Habbox and Habbo, the site could not run without each one. There is a large team of dedicated staff between the departments, overseen by the department managers and General Management.

After the resignation of buttons from the position in early 2016, the role was left vacant. In January 2017, the task of Debates was merged by Forum Manager Chris into the responsibilities of the Forum Department. In March 2017 it was announced that the role would be restored, however the role has remained dormant.

In July 2018 it was announced that Debates would be restored under the remit of the Forum Department where later Sectional took the title of Debates Leader upon his role into the Forum Moderation team. In March 2020 Jarkie became the new debates leader due to Sectional being promoted to forum manager.
