What We Need

We are looking for a skilled and passionate analyst to join us in the global 2K Analytics group, with a focus on our Sports Titles (excluding NBA) with the remit to influence at a global level. Whilst this person will report to a manager in London, their immediate team will include colleagues based around the globe - Singapore, USA and Ireland - providing a broader perspective on trends and insights.

Our team work closely with 2K's regional marketing, finance, commercial, and sales teams, understanding and delivering against their analytical needs. We're able to do this by leveraging the power of our multi-dimensional datasets, which include, but are not limited to, gameplay, behavioral, financial and marketing data.

What You Will Do
Analyzing economy telemetry and sales data to extract compelling and actionable business insights and communicate your findings and recommendations with various stakeholders.
To provide expert advice on the structuring, running and measurement of test and learn trials to maximize insight and - ultimately - revenue. These will be focused on retail led promotions and marketing activity to drive profitable new & returning players, and you'll be responsible for creating the analysis that allows us to compare what happened vs. what would have happened.
To act as a conduit between the regions and the central teams, sharing best practice from one to another and keeping the wider analytical community aware of challenges and opportunities that are region specific.
Understand data science model outputs. Evangelize data- and model-based decision making.
Establishing and distributing regular performance reports and dashboards.
Build relationships across geographies, functions, and levels to embrace new ways of working and leverage existing ones.

What Will Make You a Great Fit

The right candidate will harness all of this powerful data to improve our understanding of the business and its drivers on a regional and territory-level to inform our business strategy, tactics and outcomes. Success in this role means making analytics relevant and impactful for our stakeholders.

You are a structured problem-solver and data-driven decision maker. You work very well with colleagues across functions, geographies, and skillsets to contribute to some larger goals. You love to tell a thoughtful story from data and insight, with clear "so what's" while seeking and incorporating feedback from stakeholders. You enjoy working out how to structure ambiguous and complex problems.
5+ experience in fast-paced, dynamic, consumer-focused technology companies.
3+ years of experience with business and strategic analytics, and/or FP&A.

Bonus Points
Comfortable in using SQL to extract data from large databases (Snowflake experience would be a plus).
Familiarity with other analytical packages, such as R, Python, Knime, etc.
Familiarity with ML algorithms and model building is desirable (Snowflake experience would be a plus).

As an equal opportunity employer, we are committed to ensuring that qualified individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform their essential job functions, and to receive other benefits and privileges of employment. Please contact us if you need reasonable accommodation.
