Playdemic, a division of WB Games Inc., are looking for a talented data scientist with a passion for mobile games and cutting edge analytics, to join our fast-paced studio.
The ideal candidate will be excited by the opportunity to join us on our mission to create innovative, mobile games that engage and delight our players.
You will sit at the forefront of our analytics team, working in collaboration with our games teams, to bring positive changes to our games through data. You'll have high levels of autonomy to give you the freedom to dig into the data and use your findings to dictate and direct your own projects.

You have excellent communication skills and are equally comfortable conversing with high-level management, as you are with members of our games teams. You have the ability to simplify complex problems, identifying the key areas of focus and targeting these in a logical and structured way. You have strong organisational skills and are happy leading projects from end-to-end, starting right from the addition of new tracking through to the presentation of findings, recommendations and predictions.
