Job description

Looking for a chance to dive deeply into big data sets to drive insights and recommendations? Have an interest in guiding how software with millions of users gets developed? Interested in working alongside a talented and supportive data team with great expertise to draw from? Want access to best practices from thousands of fellow data specialists through conferences and knowledge sharing?

Our full stack data team includes data engineers, analysts, and data scientists. We support Bigpark Studio (including PM, software engineering, and design) in bringing new software experiences to our customers and working to make our existing experiences better.

This position will work across all aspects of data from designing telemetry specs, defining KPIs, measuring and reporting impact, and guiding strategic planning and product development. We work with large scale audience sizes in the hundreds of millions and our data team gets to touch a large number of Microsoft products including Microsoft Office, Teams, OneDrive, SharePoint and Windows 10 and 11.

Bigpark Studio is part of the Office Media Group inside the Experiences + Devices division. We have a history of creating showcase experiences for Xbox, Windows, and Microsoft Office. We are a diverse team of developers, creatives, data scientists and program managers delivering a full spectrum of software and services from incubation and envisioning right through to software development, customer delivery and service operations.

We have a great studio culture that includes cutting edge internal-only conferences (in both data science and data engineering), three hack weeks a year for your own side projects, regular culture events, multiple clubs that organize events for people to hang out at (board games! mountain bikers!), and lots of people to test your foosball and ping pong skills against when we are in the office (good luck!).


The Product Analyst will work alongside data engineers to obtain data, assist PM in defining KPIs, and perform dashboarding and analysis. The job uses product telemetry data to provide data-driven insights, as well as defines the key telemetry to measure future outcomes against.

The Data Analyst is responsible for working with stakeholders to turn business problems into data analysis questions, and then unearthing deep insights through analysis of data. This includes selecting the appropriate methodology through which to conduct data analysis and apply statistical methods to generate accurate and actionable insights and visualizations.
