Jens Bergensten was originally hired by Mojang as a back-end developer for Scrolls, but took an interest in a new game they were developing, Minecraft. After aiding Markus Persson in the development of Minecraft, Bergensten was made lead developer, and took over the "dirty-work" of everyday coding and small development.

Current Work

Bergensten is currently working as the head developer of Minecraft, and is often behind his computer, improving the game. Whilst Persson begins work on 0x10c, Bergensten has kept developing, and it is doubted he has any intention of stopping.
