Job Description

You will be working as a Senior Product Data Scientist in The Lab department, at the pulsing heart of innovation at King.

The Lab is a multidisciplinary organization of gaming professionals (e.g. designers, developers, UX researchers, data scientists, artists, producers, business managers, etc) who work together to push the boundaries of innovation for King and for the videogame industry.

You’ll have a proven ability to apply your skills, be it technical, behavioural or economic, to drive the understanding and success of a product.

Your Role Within our Kingdom

As a Senior Product Data Scientist, you will have primary responsibility for experimentation- driven development of one or more areas of your games. You will be working with varied stakeholders in a fun, dynamic and fast- paced environment. You’ll help us to further understand, model, predict, segment and retain our players and be part of a community of 100+ data science & analytics experts.

Specifically, You’ll

  • Translate complex business needs to technical requirements and AB- test designs, and work with development teams to ensure correct implementation, taking care to correctly track the right information to allow easy, precise analysis of the impact
  • Provide insights on user behavior and long- term trends to influence the roadmaps of the product teams
  • Work closely with other Data Scientists across the business to leverage insights from one game across multiple games
  • Help evolve the methodology and tools available to King’s data science community
  • Carefully check, debug, and problem solve issues to ensure you deliver accurate and clear analysis, reports and tools, even when confronted by subtle data complications

Skills to Create Thrills

Our ideal candidate will have solid experience leading experimentation- driven development of a commercial product. There is plenty of scope at King for you to learn from your colleagues in the areas where you have less experience, and to share your own skills where you are stronger.

Specific factors that are helpful to excel in this role include:

  • Product Knowledge: The ability to understand the problems and opportunities surrounding our games, and then defining the right data, analysis or interpretation to lead to the right recommendations and decisions.
  • Stakeholder Management: The ability to recognise dependencies, build relationships and influence others.
  • Communication: Designing good ways of communicating, visualising or reporting your results/analysis so they are clear and unambiguous
  • SQL: The ability to write complex SQL queries to analyse our databases with 300+ million players and work with relational database systems.
  • Analytical coding: Using tools such as R, Python or Excel for analytical purposes.
  • Stats: Understanding the basics of appropriate statistical or machine learning techniques.
  • Leadership: The ability to mentor, guide and inspire your colleagues and drive best practices across the company

Bonus Points

Other experience that might be helpful, but is not required, includes:

  • Work in the games industry or similarly customer- facing digital businesses
  • Familiarity with massive data sets and tools to deal with them (BigQuery/AWS/Hadoop etc)
  • Experience in behavioural psychology/economics and experimental design
  • Experience in predictive analytics, segmentation, and related areas
  • Software engineering skills in Java and other languages (beyond R and Python which we use most frequently)
  • Skills with standard reporting tools such as Looker/QlikView/Tableau/etc.

A Great Saga Needs All Sorts of Heros

Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people that share the same idea of what makes a good workplace great. No matter where you’re from, it’s all about what we can achieve together when creating truly magical moments for all our players. That’s why we hire all sorts of talent - because a great saga needs all sorts of heroes.
