  • Driving decision making through presentation of work
  • Spreading best practices to analytics and game teams


  • Evaluating and defining metrics
  • Understanding changes in key metrics and long-term trends
  • Building models of user behavior for analysis
  • Forming and testing hypotheses to make recommendations proactively
  • Creating dashboards and reports


  • Building data sets and automating analyses using SQL
  • Designing and evaluating the events tracked by the game

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Passion for gaming and solving problems!
  • Ability to turn analyses into valuable action
  • Excellent cooperation skills
  • Data literacy and quantitative analysis skills
  • High level of proficiency in relevant scripting language(s), e.g. R or Python
  • Understanding of statistical analysis and advanced SQL

Additionally, we'd love you to have:

  • Prior experience working in the gaming industry

What you get when you join us:

  • We give you the best support we can to help you grow and achieve your professional goals
  • We have lots of fun! We’re a family-like community that’s hands-on, open, collaborative and ambitious
  • You’ll get to work in a truly international environment: you’ll hear number of languages in our workplace and can join a variety of activities
  • Great opportunity to work with top talents in the gaming industry!
  • Hackathons: We love to try new technologies and methods to build next generation infrastructure and tools.

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 Helsinki.

If you are interested, please send your application today (your CV, cover letter). We look forward to hearing from you.
