For decades, Wizards of the Coast has connected people around the world through play and imagination, with core games that have defined their genres - Magic: The Gathering® and Dungeons & Dragons®. We want to offer more ways to connect and play as the company grows. And that’s where you come in.

What is this role all about?

We are looking for an extraordinary data analyst to be the voice of data and analytics in the design and live operations of our digital products. You will partner with game designers, product managers, and strategic leadership to analyze complex problems and recommend data-informed solutions. You will combine your analytical and statistical skills with your love of games to make recommendations and find opportunities that make our games better for our players and for Wizards.

  • Identify Opportunities – At Wizards, we are always striving to make our products better, and this will be especially true in the competitive digital marketplace.

You will be the “voice of the data” in identifying where we can be doing better and in quantifying the potential impact.

Your magnificent execution and effective communication will earn the trust of the game teams and executives, and, in return, they will look to you for analytical guidance and impartial analysis.
  • Publish Important Reporting – You will empower others by developing reporting that answers key questions in understanding and running our business and games. You will understand user needs, anticipate their questions, and provide meaningful on-demand reporting for our partners.

What you'll bring:

  • 2 years of work experience in data analysis with a gaming company
  • Proficiency in SQL language (Postgres, TSQL, etc.) and other analytic programming languages
  • BS/BA degree in a quantitative discipline (e.g., statistics, economics, computational biology, computer science, mathematics, physics, etc.).

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
