Zynga is looking for a skilled Data Analyst with a behavioral orientation to help us improve our games. Like you, we know that understanding the user leads to making the best products. As a Data Analyst you will help us understand user behavior by leveraging the substantial information available in existing systems as well as help shape the future form of systems used for behavioral data tracking. Regardless of the specific activity, your general goal will be to use data to paint a picture of behavior within the leading social games on the Internet—games like FarmVille, Mafia Wars and FrontierVille.


  • Design, develop and produce weekly user experience dashboard mapping quantitative and qualitative trends
  • Retrieve and analyze data from server logs, online experiments (A/B testing), instrumented products, etc.
  • Model user behavior based upon previous findings and the most relevant available data.
  • Meaningfully contribute to the evolution of tools for tracking and understanding user behavior.
  • Interface with key internal clients and project stakeholders to ensure available data is applied for its best use to the organization.
­­ Required Skills:
  • Advanced statistical training and thorough practical experience modeling behavior from data. A thorough understanding of the associated strengths and weaknesses of different statistical analysis approaches.
  • A working knowledge of SQL, SAS/SPSS or programming languages useful to data retrieval and analysis.
  • Excellent data reporting and presentation skills.
  • Motivated self-starter
  • Able to prioritize and deliver at high speed
  • Strong project management skills
  • Preference for practiced (3 years) or experienced (5 years) researchers with demonstrable success in applied settings. Preference for those with web and/or games research experience.
  • Sound research judgment developed through practice, i.e., the ability to appropriately match research or analysis methods to questions of interest.
  • A background in experimental psychology, cognitive science, anthropology, human computer interaction, computer science, information science or related field. Advanced degree a plus

  • Data Analytics

    We believe our ability to track and test our games is an important factor in Zynga’s tremendous growth. Our data analytics group develops and manages world-class data warehouses and large-scale web systems that help us improve our games on a daily basis.
