You will lead our Data team, working closely with our Data Analyst and Data Scientist to solve challenges across the business, primarily with our Game, UA and Finance teams.

  • Proactively develop new analyses, experiments and data tools to better understand the performance of our games;
  • Further develop our data culture; 
  • Manage multiple stakeholders and prioritise the team’s work;

  • Experience managing relationships with multiple stakeholders;
  • Experience understanding business problems, and ability to match them to the right statistical techniques;
  • Great communication skills, to clearly articulate your insights and develop our data culture;
  • Experience manipulating data with SQL and R/Python.


Nice to have:

Why join Trailmix?

This is an incredible opportunity for an enthusiastic, ambitious and proactive person to really make a difference and be a part of something amazing; joining a team that has a spectacular track record of making mobile mega hits. We are backed by Supercell - a mobile games company that is not only known for its outstanding commercial success but also for its focus on great teams, autonomy and excellent culture.
