We are proud to publish and support many of today’s most critically acclaimed gaming franchises, including NBA 2K, PGA TOUR 2K, WWE 2K, Borderlands, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, BioShock, XCOM, and Sid Meier’s Civilization.

What We Need

We are seeking a highly skilled and deeply experienced Data Scientist, Live Services Insights to lead a talented team of analysts in developing and refining data-driven, test-based approaches to drive Live Services strategy and execution for the 2K portfolio of sports franchises and partner studios, including Visual Concepts, HB Studios, and many more.

As such, the ideal candidate must have a deep understanding of video games and live services across the industry, but especially the range of 2K games under this team’s remit, to make maximum sense of every dataset and enable the extraction of relevant and actionable insights. They must have the ability to see around corners and predict the potential implications and outcomes of myriad approaches and decisions, based on historical outcomes of our own products as well as competing franchises, current and past, throughout the industry.

This role requires a strong relationship builder, as in addition to cultivating strong and lasting Studio relationships, it will also partner closely with key cross functional Publishing teams, including brand marketing, performance marketing, product development and analytics to identify, model and execute solutions. They must be an articulate communicator, and instill the same in their team, to ensure key findings are shared in a clear and timely manner, maximizing impact and influence on a wide range of live service and commercial business decisions. Finally, the ideal candidate for this role will have a passion for professional development, teaching up-and-coming analysts the skills necessary to become leaders in this ever-evolving space. Sounds amazing, right? It is – and this could be you!

Who We Think Will Be a Great Fit

The ideal candidate is incredibly passionate about gaming, data-driven decision-making and contributing to the tremendous success of every 2K Studio and franchise. They are curious by nature and foster that same curiosity within their team and across partner teams. They are methodical (but agile), objective and hypothesis-driven, and adept at parsing large data sets with the experience to which data is actually required and where in the data to look for each answer. They are proactive in identifying potential issues and opportunities and rigorous in testing hypotheses, eager to uncover actionable insights that help move the needle for 2K. They must be a solution oriented, creative problem solver and self-starter, with tremendous passion and enthusiasm for inspiring meaningful decisions and optimizations across the portfolio.
