Your Mission

The Engagement Data Analyst will work closely with BI, the Consumer Analytics team in the HQ in Santa Monica / Irvine and our local teams in territories to create reporting and analysis by territory on the engagement of our games and their monetisation.

As Activision Blizzard looks towards the next step in analytics and insights, there is a large opportunity to help drive concise KPIs and deep analysis of in-game events and activities. Your undertaking includes:

  • Generate, update and maintain dashboards that can be used to drill down by country.
  • Develop requirements for, and monitoring of, intuitive dashboards while automating the recurring needs and requests.
  • Providing player insights to European Leadership Team (ELT) by territory in support of Live Services and Mainline Titles (proactively & reactively).
  • Function as an expert on business metrics, player & behavioral insights for the organization.
  • Communicate franchise health on a broad suite of Blizzard titles through regular reporting.
  • Develop new analyses outside of regular reporting that will inform the business how to further drive player acquisition, engagement, monetization, and churn mitigation.
  • Work collaboratively with our data science and innovation teams to ensure best practices and knowledge sharing occurs.

Your First Year:

The launch of any expansion / new title will be the highlight of the year and for that date, we will need you to ensure all relevant data are available by country, territory and region for analysis.

In that time you will need to get a strong understanding of our Live Ops model and which KPIs are important to follow on a territory level.

Keeping strong ties with the Analytics team in Santa Monica and Irvine will be essential to ensure best practices are followed

As your experience and understanding grows you will be a key contributor to the team meetings and will help the business to get a deep understanding of the key Engagement KPIs. Increased knowledge will allow you to cast a critical eye on reporting and add value to variance analysis with insightful commentary.
