In addition to managing and mentoring fellow analysts, you will collaborate with the Engineering team to maintain and design new data pipelines to be used directly by stakeholders such as Accounting, User Acquisition, and Ad Monetization teams. You will work closely with Product to investigate player behavior and contribute to the development and evolution of our biggest titles, such as Animation Throwdown and Idle Frontier.
