Jobs at Outplay Entertainment Ltd

Data Analyst

Location: Dundee, United Kingdom

Department: Analytics

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Experienced

The Opportunity 

We at Outplay Entertainment collect vast amounts of data to shape our games and services so that they become more enjoyable for customers and more profitable to our business. Outplay is a fast-paced data-driven business where the Analytics Team plays a central role in informing business decisions through detailed analyses and the reporting of metrics.

In order to expand our team, we are looking to hire an experienced Data Analyst. Our Analytics team explores data, extracts insights and systematically measures the performance of changes to our Games through A/B tests and Multivariate experiments. We also conduct cutting-edge research into how we can leverage our rich data collection to add value.

This role focuses on Data Analysis, Visualisation and Statistical Analysis: What insights can we extract? How do we present the data as clearly as possible? What is the best method to verify or invalidate a hypothesis? Can we predict what players will do next?

You will work closely with our Analytics Manager to provide Analyses, Metrics and valuable insights to our internal Games, Finance and Marketing teams. Due to the ever changing nature of our business and on-going feature developments we expect you to regularly liaise with the stakeholders, understand their needs and help to work out the best approach to provide the answers based on Player and Financial data.

Ideally you are an experienced Product Manager / Financial Analyst or F2P Games Economy Designer with the drive to work in Analytics and the ambition to contribute to the data driven decision making process at Outplay. You’ll be a business partner to almost all areas of Outplay, including senior Executive Team, Production, Marketing, Game Design and Finance.

This is an exciting opportunity for a creative, systematic and curious thinker.

Desired talent 

  • Passion for Games and an understanding of the “Free to Play” business model including the commonly used metrics and KPI’s
  • Minimum 2 years work experience in the field of Online Business Intelligence / Finance BI / data driven Product Management or at a F2P Games Company in a Data Analyst / Economy Designer Role
  • Postgraduate degree (Ph.D. or M.Sc.) in Computer Science or Maths (or similar) or 2+ years of relevant work experience as a Data or Business Analyst
  • Practical experience in providing data driven insights and recommendations to support business strategy and decision making
  • Knowledge of Data Analytics tools, supporting languages (R, Python,…) and statistical techniques (e.g. hypothesis testing and regression).
  • Experience / willingness to learn writing SQL queries for relational databases is essential as well as an understanding of statistical techniques, scripting languages and applied mathematics
  • Excellent communicator who is able to transform complex Analytical results into actionable insights for an often non-technical audience
