We are looking for a quantitative focused researcher that loves digging through and analyzing data in order to understand our users. You should be prepared to mind meld with our data stores to gain user insights. If that is you, then you will be joining our existing analytics team but with a more data driven angle to help understand what motivates our users. This requires working with our Business Intelligence, Customer Service, and Design teams to help create relationships and a good workflow (don't worry, they don't bite). You will identify and investigate patterns in our data to inform, teach, and inspire product owners and design teams. So if you want the opportunity to further improve Blizzard's Shop and e-commerce, we would love to chat.

  • Define problems and opportunities through analysis of current behaviors combined with product goals.
  • Create and show solutions to create tagging strategies and work with engineering to ensure the right data is being measured.
  • Deliver and follow through using Dashboards, reports and data-driven recommendations to evaluate designs and inspire new ideas
  • Serious passion for user-centered design.
  • A minimum of 3 years' experience as an Analyst, Researcher, Data Scientist or similar.

  • Experience pulling data with SQL.
  • Experience running A/B tests.
