Pixelberry Studios develops story-driven mobile games. We’ve had a lot of commercial success - our first three releases have made the Top Grossing charts - but we also try hard to make a positive difference in our players’ lives and the world at large. For instance, we’ve developed special content to raise money and awareness for nonprofits like the Cybersmile Foundation and the National Eating Disorders Association, and we are even collaborating with the United Nations on a climate change initiative. We think games can and should be a powerful force for good, and our company culture reflects that mindset.

We’re looking for a talented Data Scientist to work closely with our data team and business stakeholders to upgrade our reporting system and answer our many Game Analytics, Business Intelligence, and User Acquisition questions. The ideal candidate will combine an extremely sharp analytical mindset with solid technical skills; a love of games and interactive entertainment; and a penchant to learn and grow and to help others do the same.

A successful applicant will quickly see why members of the Pixelberry family tend to stick around for the long haul. We all work from home two days a week (pre-COVID), along with awesome health insurance and free meals. Finally, our co-founders are experienced and successful team leaders in the mobile games industry, so you will be contributing to the next generation of hit products in and around our space.
