Habbox 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.

Each General Manager deals with different sections of the Fansite. However, they mainly oversee the running of the Fansite and ensure everything is improving while they deal with any problems which may occur.
