Game Analyst with IT understanding
Do you want to work with Terabytes of data, helping the continuous development of games that millions of kids around the world love to play every day? Are you a strong communicator with an explorative and analytical mindset?
About the Job
As an analyst at MovieStarPlanet, you will be working with the Game Designers to help them understand and improve features in the game through in-depth analysis, dashboard building, ab-testing, and projections. You will have a high level of involvement in this process, and your results and insights will directly affect and improve our games and the company performance.
You will also be working closely with the Marketing Department, by maintaining their sales models and prediction tool, as well as analyzing the effect of paid media campaigns, sales, and special events. You will have the opportunity to apply your own expertise and ideas to each project, so your ability to work independently with confidence and attention to detail will be highly valued.
Although your primary focus will be on analysis, you will likely also have other minor tasks outside of this, as you will join a small Analytics Team who owns the entire process from defining events, building ETL, maintain our data warehouse and delivering results to the business. This means that you will be able to influence the development of the data structure and sources you will be working with.
Our analytics data pipeline is event-based and stored in a cloud-based data warehouse. We are using the latest technologies to store, process and analyze multiple TB’s of data, so you will have the opportunity to work with cutting-edge tools and systems, unlimited by the restraints of older technologies.
- You are passionate about data, and you love understanding the challenges of your non-IT-colleagues and translating the challenges into solutions that meet their needs
- You know your SQL
- You have knowledge of analytical languages such as R and Python and tools like Tableau
- You are curious and love complex challenges
- You have 3+ years’ experience working with big data from e. g. a gaming or retail company
- You are self-starting and a strong communicator verbally as well as in writing
- You are fluent in English
- Ideally, you also have experience with sales modeling and media
