Analysing Time Series Data at Scale - Master Thesis
As a data-driven company we believe that the key to success is drawing sound conclusions from a massive amount of data. In engineering at King, we collect 400 000 telemetry data points per second from our backend infrastructure. Analysing this amount of data becomes a challenge with off the shelf tools.
Your role within our Kingdom
We are looking for a Master thesis student to assist in building a system that allows Engineers at King to leverage time series data to gain insights into our infrastructure. Some of the areas to be investigated are: evaluating options for storing and querying the data, visualising the data and performing real-time anomaly detection.
Skills to create thrills

* Interest in solving problems at massive scale
* Excellent communication in English
A great saga needs all sorts of heroes
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.
About the Stockholm Studio
Our first studio has been making casual games since 2003. It is the home of Candy Crush Saga, one of the world's most played game. Since 2015 we have two studios centrally located in one of the world's most unique and beautiful capital cities, built over 14 islands. You'll find plenty of urban delights and open spaces within walking, skating and swimming distance - dependent on the time of year, of course.
This internship will start in January 2018.
All applications need to be in English. Please include a copy of your grades.
