(Closed) Sr. Manager, Analytics
Industrial Toys is a AAA mobile developer founded by Halo veteran Alex Seropian. Our mission is to make games that are Mobile To The Core! We are currently working to bring cutting edge FPS gaming to your phone. If you’re interested in working with veteran mobile, console, and PC developers in creating new AAA experiences that will reach billions of mobile players around the world we would like to hear from you!
The central data insights group is hiring a Senior Manager to lead Data for one of Industrial Toys titles under development, a key position that will partner closely with everyone from our head of tech to our group of product managers. Given the ubiquity of data, it’s essential that our game teams and EA as a whole have the most state of the art information, insights, and data products available at any point in time, and that will be a significant part of the remit of the team that you will be charged with building. Success in this position will require an entrepreneurial spirit and a collaborative attitude, working across different studio pillars to understand foundational insights needs, building out a successful roadmap to address them, and executing on it. Because of the uniqueness of this situation, mobile gaming experience is a requirement.
This is a leadership role with high visibility and your success will be predicated on the larger success of the studio and game that you are supporting. You will be the point person for central and studio leadership alike, a source of truth and objectivity. Your ability to listen and reframe, to filter out the noise and pinpoint the core of a problem, and to focus resources against those issues while also communicating at the highest levels in a transparent and explanatory way will be the primary key to empowering your partners. Data has changed how we operate as a society and it’s beholden to data leaders to help others understand and see how that will affect our future. We need to move beyond seeing those that sit close to it as the sole consumers of data and understand that everyone in the company should and will be end-users, and in this position, you will be part of the group responsible for setting up and acting on that vision for the company.
Analytics is not viewed as a service, but rather as a partner with an equal seat at the table, therefore a role of this importance Is expected to push beyond a traditional analytics remit; you bring the quantitative perspective but you will need to collaborate extensively with your creative teammates in Product and Design. Being able to manage the short-term priorities and analysis of your team while still focusing on the long-term vision for the game and how these short-term pushes affect them is imperative; to bridge the gap between the creative side of game design and the hard math of live-services, you will need to understand both sides of that coin.
Games and gaming are changing. Over the next few years, that change is going to accelerate and without the proper knowledge and toolsets to exploit this, many developers will struggle to keep up with it. Our job on this team is to ensure that our studios are equipped with as much insight and clarity as possible to not only keep pace but become the shapers of that evolution, to help EA lead into the future. We find that exciting and we hope that you do, too.
