Do you have an insatiable curiosity? Can you help us level up and stay ahead? We're looking for a Data Scientist to take our games to new realms. Our data is big, billions of gameplays a day big. But our ambition is bigger. To predict what’s next. To evolve our games and our ads business. Fuelled by a determination to be better tomorrow than we are today.

We are looking for a skilled and creative Data Scientist interested in building, defining and pushing the boundaries of games analytics within our Stockholm studio, focusing on our ads business in Candy Crush. You’ll have a proven ability to apply your skills, be it technical, behavioural or economic, in order to generate value for our fantastic players.

Your role within our Kingdom

If you want to improve the experience of King’s 260 million players across our network of games, then this may be the right opportunity for you. You’ll help us to further understand, model, predict, segment, retain and operate the ads experience for our players. You will be part of a community of 80+ business intelligence & analytics experts, while working on a daily basis in smaller teams of 6- 8 people focusing on how we can deliver a world- class ads experience.

Specifically, you’ll:

Skills to create thrills

You have a passion for quantitative analysis, understanding player behaviour and will have the ability to draw business insights which will add real value to King. You will need to demonstrate the ability to learn quickly and will have worked in a fast- paced and collaborative environment. This role will involve working with teams and individuals across King - such as Game Developers, Business Performance Managers and Marketeers, so excellent communication skills are essential.

While we certainly don’t expect you to have all of these skills from day one, we do expect you to learn and develop in each of the following five areas:

There is plenty of scope at King for you to learn from your colleagues in the areas where you have less experience, and to share your own skills where you are stronger.

Specific experience that might be helpful, but is not required, includes: Experience in the games industry and/or ads industry; experience in "big data" systems such as BigQuery; experience in behavioural psychology/economics; robust understanding of more advanced statistical techniques suitable for analysis of highly skewed populations; experience in predictive analytics, segmentation, and related areas; experience in experimental design; software engineering skills in Java and other languages (beyond R and Python which we use most frequently); skills with standard reporting tools such as QlikView/Tableau/etc.

Previous experience within the ads industry is a plus.

Personal Attributes

Making the world playful

When it comes to interactive mobile entertainment, we're pretty proud to be number one. We bring moments of magic to hundreds of millions every day through games like Candy Crush Saga and Farm Heroes Saga. We take the art and science of gaming to the next level through our curiosity for the unexplored, passion for games, respect for each other and love for our players - and we’re not afraid to have fun along the way.

A great saga needs diverse heroes

Making games is fun. Especially when you do it with people who share the same idea of what makes a good workplace, great. We craft games for everyone, no matter where they are or who they are, and we employ all kinds of people from all types of backgrounds to bring them to life. We believe we simply can’t expect diversity in our players and new ideas in our games without first nurturing it in our people. A great saga needs all sort of heroes, wouldn’t you agree? That’s why we provide equal opportunities and hire all sorts of talent.
