  • Analyzing user data and feedback to pitch and develop new content and game mechanics
  • Standardizing flows and processes within our content generation pipelines

Who You Are:

  • You can communicate your thoughts and ideas clearly in person and in writing
  • You have a strong understanding of free-to-play game mechanics and game content pipelines

  • Have experience with UX design or market research
  • Have experience with data analysis
  • Have developed a game yourself
  • Have experience working with customer feedback and community

While All our Apes are Different to Thrive Here You Should:

  • Be self-motivated, take pride in your work and enjoy huge amounts of ownership
  • Set aside your ego and have wonderful arguments with your coworkers in order to create something better than any one person could individually
  • Challenge your own assumptions and use data to make decisions whenever possible
  • Be passionate about teaching others what you know and continuing your own growth every day
  • Not be afraid to fail, you experiment and learn from your mistakes
  • If you’re ready to make the next generation of top-grossing mobile games, we’d love to hear from you!
