ABOUT THE JOB
You are joining an exceptionally talented team that is getting ready to launch their flagship game. You will be responsible for defining and building the data architecture from the ground up that will support the growth and business of the company for years to come. Working closely with game developers (frontend and backend), you will implement the data systems and pipelines. You will set up the initial data analysis dashboards to monitor player metrics/KPIs, and work on LiveOps systems to dynamically optimize the player experience. You will regularly present data-driven analysis to senior leadership. As the game launches, you will build and lead the Data Engineering and Analysis team.
ABOUT THE CARBON COUNTS TEAM
Biodiversity is the word for the varied animals, plants, fungi, bacteria, and other life forms that are connected and intertwined within an ecosystem. The more biodiversity, the stronger the ecosystem. We’re obsessed with the idea of biodiversity—for the planet, and for the team! Currently, we’re a small, mighty team with different, varied roots in different realms. Some of us have come from entertainment (think Disney). Some from game dev (think Adventure Capitalist, EA, Kabam, Activision, and Club Penguin). Some from business (think tech start-ups and Lululemon). Some from tech (think Google). Some are in conservation (think Rare.org). All of us are inspired by the possibility of changing the world, one moment, one laugh, one step, one community—one tree at a time. We know our players will come from all walks of life—and so do we. We’re hiring exceptional people from a wide variety of backgrounds—it’s the right thing to do and it makes Carbon Counts stronger. If you share our values and love for trees, animals, and nature, please consider applying!
