Rovio is currently looking for a Senior Data Analyst to join our Stockholm Studio. Here you will be working with our games that are live on the market; including the hugely successful Angry Birds 2 which has over 250 million downloads and is still breaking revenue records.
As part of the Rovio Stockholm studio, you will be working with the team that has created one of the largest comebacks in the gaming industry. Angry Birds 2 was struggling after launch and used data to turn the game around to be consistently in the top 40 grossing charts. We strive to constantly improve our work and believe that anything can be changed and everything can be tested.
You will use your analytical skills to fully understand differences in user behavior. This knowledge makes analysts integral members of the team valued on their objectivity. In many ways, analysis drives what we do next in our games; and evaluates what goes right and wrong. You will achieve this by working closely with the product manager, game designers, and analysts.
The fast-paced industry of free2play games forces us to think quickly and manage many priorities at the same time. Return on Investment (ROI) is our main priority not only in our production of the game but within analysis. We value efficiency over complexity. Pride of our work comes from analytics that leads to impact rather than how we get there.
We expect you to be a gamer at heart with ROI on the top of your mind. Your understanding of statistical/modeling techniques drives you to find unique solutions to the problems at hand. This can be anything from segmentation to reporting; whichever is best for ROI.
To thrive in this position you will need excellent social skills to be able to work with anyone from creatives to finance. Additionally, you should demonstrate the ability to explain complex subjects to anyone. And, you should be able to clearly define suggestions and work with the game team to accomplish their goals. Communication is key to making data actionable.
You'll need these skills:
Master of Science in quantitative discipline required (math, physics, statistics, computer science, engineering, economics, etc.)
3+ years experience as an Analyst or Data Scientist
2+ years using SQL on a daily basis
Experience using Statistical Software (e.g., Python, R, SAS, SPSS )
Experience in taking analysis to action
Experience in A/B Testing design, implementation and decision making
Passion for gaming!
Additionally, we'd love you to have:
Prior experience working in the gaming industry
Know-how in the technology that we work with R, Python, Presto and Athena
In the Rovio Stockholm studio you’ll join a close community that is hands-on, open, collaborative and ambitious. We challenge each other and ourselves in all we do here but keep the atmosphere friendly, inclusive, respectful and supportive. A work week with us would most probably include a joint breakfast with your colleagues from around the world, free massage time, gaming sessions, friday beers and more.
In case you'd be moving from abroad, we'll offer you relocation support and make sure you have a smooth start with us in Stockholm.
