  • Build dashboards and complex visualizations.
  • Develop the right tools and methodologies to make your analyses repeatable and accessible, including extensive documentation.
  • Define and analyze key performance indicators such as retention, lifetime value or player acquisition.
  • Translate complex findings and results into an easy-to-understand and compelling narrative.
  • Communicate analyses and recommendations to cross-functional stakeholders to influence the direction of the business. 
What we're looking for :
  • 3+ years in a quantitative analysis role focusing on data mining and manipulating, predictive analytics, business intelligence, statistics, machine learning.
  • Strong experience on coding in Python, SQL and R.
  • Ability to code predictive simulations. Good background in mathematics is a plus.
  • Curiosity and problem-solving mindset.
  • Genuine interest and ability to identify and solve complex business problems.
  • Genuine interest for video games, as well as for the video game industry and its relevant challenges.
