Learn more about me with a detailed journey of my life.
My name is Charlie Joseph and I'm an innovator and entrepreneur from London, UK. I've been programming since I was 13 years old, building server-sided modifications for Minecraft - the world's largest game of its kind.
Since the time I was 10 years old, Minecraft has had a profound impact on my life, not simply for the leisure aspect, but also for the business and financial opportunities it has presented. By trial and error, I taught myself Java and web development in my mid-teens, creating websites and applications to enhance the gaming experience of players. This was where my entrepreneurial journey began, and the projects I created went on to form the foundation of my career.
My first venture into the world of Minecraft businesses came at age 20, when I created Bazaar Tracker - an item tracking website for the Hypixel Minecraft Network. I built it from the ground up and it quickly gained traction, becoming one of the go-to sources for players seeking information on their in-game purchases. I intended it to be a side project, but it blew up in popularity and gained tons of traction. It went on to generate more than 800,000 monthly visitors and thousands of dollars from on-site advertisements before I sold it.
A year later, I was back with another Minecraft-focused business - this time a server analytics platform called Analyse.net. I built it to help game server admins get a better understanding of their audience and how they were playing. It helped them to identify patterns in the data – all with a slick, intuitive user interface. The platform was an immediate success, tracking more than 700,000 unique players and over 10 million player sessions in its first 8 months. In October 2022 I sold Analyse to a Tebex, allowing me to focus on my next venture.
All in all, my journey with Minecraft has been a unique and rewarding experience for me. It's a game I'm still passionate about today and will continue to be so for the foreseeable future.
At present, I am employed full-time as the Head of Analytics for Tebex, a game monetisation platform. I work full-time on projects related to analytics and data. My strength lies in design, and I put great effort into making sure all websites look and feel premium. Whether it's building dashboards or dealing with data analytics, I'm always looking for opportunities to utilise my skills.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing Clash of Clans and Call of Duty on my Steam Deck, as well as looking after my 1 year 8 month old Pomeranian, Chico - the center of my universe! I'm always looking for ways to challenge myself and further my knowledge, so if you have something interesting in mind, feel free to reach out.
I am always excited to start new projects and learn from those around me. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing what the future brings!
