Business/Game Analyst job feed

As the digital entertainment industry is gradually incorporating analytics as a part of the core business strategies, a new type of position has emerged in games: the business analyst, or game analyst. I receive a lot of pings from recruiters looking to hire analysts, and therefore decided to set up a job feed where I will publish any open calls, subject to the approval of whomever is hiring. Also, included some notes about where to go look for analytics jobs. 

I will recycle job calls every 2 weeks.

Additional calls for or hints on positions can also be found on the following LinkedIn groups:

Games Analytics Network

Games User Research SIG
Analytics for Games
Web Analytics Professionals
Data Analyst
Social Game App Analytics
International Game Developers Association

I can also recommend Data Science Central.

Additional information can also be found on:

Gamasutra: http://www.gamasutra.com (the job board) Nicholas Lowell’s site GamesBrief: http://www.gamesbrief.com/

Also, most large publishers have in-house analytics teams, so look on the job boards of the respective companies.

Finally, middleware providers of analytics services such as Kontagent, Game Analytics, HoneyTracks, Playnomics, Sonamine etc., also sometimes post position calls. Following their websites can be a good way of getting a lead on positions.

Best of Luck.
