  • Accelerate game development by answering business questions quickly leveraging existing tools or building new ones.
  • Expand game potential by providing non-trivial solutions to business questions such as how to analyse game performance, engage players, customize content, run successful experiments, and optimize game economy.

  • Knowledge of statistics and machine learning that is both deep and broad.
  • Solid experience working as a data scientist on technically challenging problems.
  • Experience with product analytics.
  • Knowledge of Looker (nice to have).
