Director of Product Analytics

Analytics | Emeryville, CA | Full Time

Job Description

NEXON M is a mobile game publisher and developer based in the SF Bay Area in Emeryville. Founded in 2013, NEXON M focuses on free-to-play games for mobile and counts some of the world’s best developers as its partners, including Big Huge Games, maker of the top-grossing game DomiNations, and Particle City.

NEXON M’s focus on free-to-play games for mobile can be traced to our roots as a subsidiary of NEXON Corp. As Korea’s largest game company, NEXON is known for having created the first free-to-play games in the early 2000′s and has multiple games which recently passed their 10-year anniversaries of live operation.

We're looking for a sharp, highly quantitative, and impact-oriented leader to drive the Analytics Team to dive deep into our ocean of data, seek out actionable insights and drive critical decisions. This person will manage a small group of analysts and oversee KPI reporting, predictive modeling, and behavioral analysis across all business functions. He/she will be expected not only to operate a service-oriented team built for quick, efficient problem solving in a live-ops environment, but also to steer longer-term strategic projects that drive outcomes for customer acquisition, retention, and monetization.

The ideal candidate has extensive domain expertise and technical literacy but is driven foremost by a desire to achieve business objectives and create value for others. They have a proven track record of success in building lean, adaptive teams and driving complex, multi-team projects to completion. They are equally comfortable debugging a python script as they are walking an executive team through a strategic roadmap, and understand how to frame problems and articulate context to stakeholders at any end of an organizational spectrum. Above all, this person has the hunger, chops, and discipline to build a world-class team and operation.
