Data Engineer Position

Spry Fox is looking for a smart, well-rounded engineer/analyst to build new systems for analyzing our games. We’re a small company with big needs, so we need someone who is eager to wear many hats, and is self-motivated to seek out and tackle our biggest problems.

Our goals:

– instrument our games to report back interesting facts

– collect these facts in a Big Database

– answer ad-hoc questions about game balance, tutorial effectiveness, and common player confusion points (etc) using the database

– produce dashboards and regular reports for common/overall stats

We’re looking for the right engineer/analyst to help us build and perfect the systems and techniques we use for data analysis. Help us choose technologies, hook up software, develop statistical techniques, and in general have your fingers in every aspect of how we do things. Get rid of our overly-manual processes, try building new things for needs we didn’t even know we had, and have a big hand in defining your role in general. And if you happen to have time left over, contribute to other aspects of our games’ development!

About Spry Fox: We’re an innovative little company whose goal is to increase the world’s happiness through original gameplay. Our organization is largely flat, and we mostly work from home. Every member of the team is trusted to be effective, honest, and proactive, and has the freedom to make (hopefully good) decisions.

Familiarity with the following technologies would help: Hive, MySQL

    My brother-in-law follows your company and asked if I would be interested in this position. I have reviewed this posting and thought that we might be a good fit. I am currently a Sr Application Developer for DeVry inc, working primarily on the force.com platform: but I also have experience with MySQL, php, Ajax, JSON, and other web development technologies. If you are looking for a way to automate your internal processes and reporting, I would recommend that you take a look at the force.com and database.com options.
