Jens "Jeb" Bergensten is a Mojang AB employee currently working as the lead developer of Minecraft and Minecraft - Pocket Edition.

About

Jeb frequents the Minecraft Wiki as Jeb mojang,[8][note 1] where he was particularly active in the issue lists, which he sanctioned as the official place to report and discuss Minecraft bugs and annoyances before the introduction of the official issue tracker.

In 2013, he was included in the annual TIME 100 list along with Notch.[9]

Mojang

Jeb joined Mojang in November 2010 as a game developer.[5] Starting out as a back-end developer for Scrolls, Jeb became increasingly involved in the development of Minecraft, implementing features like wolves, pistons, and map structures (villages, strongholds and nether fortresses).

Jeb later took the lead position in Minecraft development in December 2011 when Markus Persson stepped down.[10][11] As of May 2012, his tweets now appear on the homepage of minecraft.net, in place of Notch's. On December 12, 2012, he announced that he would also take the lead of the Pocket Edition.[12]

Trivia

Notes

  1. His username was "Jeb" before the Gamepedia migration, but it had to be changed due that name having already been taken on Gamepedia.
