About the Role

Data is central to Twitch's decision-making process, and data scientists are a critical component to evangelize data-driven decision-making in all of our operations. As an data scientist at Twitch, you will be on the ground floor with your team, shaping the way product performance is measured, defining what questions should be asked, and scaling analytics methods and tools to support our growing business, leading the way for high-quality, high velocity decisions for your team.

For this role, we're looking for an experienced data scientist in analytics who will help develop the strategy and evaluate/improve product initiatives within our Community Experiences product team. You will be responsible to define and track KPIs, design experiments, evaluate A/B tests, implement data instrumentation, and inform on investment. Our ideal candidate is a full-stack data powerhouse who uses data to drive decision-making to make the best products for our creators and their communities. Your input will be core to decision-making across all major product strategies and initiatives that our team builds. You will work with product managers, technical program managers, engineering, data scientists, and organization leadership within and outside of the Community organization.

You Will:

  • Inform product strategies by defining and updating core metrics for each initiative
  • Establish analytical framework for your team: ad-hoc analysis, automated dashboards, and self-service reporting tools to surface key data to stakeholders
  • Evaluate and forecast impact of product features on creators, viewers, and the entire Twitch ecosystem
  • Design A/B experiments to drive product direction with iterative innovation and measurement
  • Drive the team's analysis roadmap and prioritize the most valuable projects
  • Dive deep into the data to understand how creator and viewer behaviors change with the evolution of our product
  • Act as our team's thought leader on best practices and move towards long-term vision of sustainable and thriving data processes
  • Own data collection and product instrumentation implementation and quality assurance

You Have:

  • 3+ years of domain experience in a mobile or consumer internet business, or in a high-velocity, high-growth product or business unit
  • Expert fluency in SQL-based data manipulation
  • Experience designing and running randomized experiments or A/B experiments
  • Experience working directly with software product teams
  • Independence in determining and establishing data analysis priorities to balance ongoing projects with requests from various stakeholders

Bonus Points

  • Technical background and programming experience–especially R or Python
  • Experience building data products
  • Passion about online communities, games, and Twitch

Perks

  • Medical, Dental, Vision & Disability Insurance
  • 401(k), Maternity & Parental Leave
  • Flexible PTO
  • Commuter Benefits
