Data Lead Helsinki

Are you an experienced Data Lead up for building and improving our data practices?

Ready to join one of Europe's fastest growing game companies?

If yes, Metacore could be the right place for you

We are a Helsinki-based game company best known for our hit game Merge Mansion and our people-first company culture. Built on trust, our culture allows us to work autonomously, efficiently, and ambitiously. We have mutually agreed on five cultural norms to describe how we build trust and work as Metacore – you can find them here.

Our company’s mission is to entertain hundreds of millions of people for decades. Although we already entertain 35,000,000+ players worldwide and have grown into a team of 100+ game industry professionals in less than two years, we’re only getting started. That’s where we hope you come in: to make us even better at harnessing data analytics for better game development and business operations.

Data Lead plays a key role in developing scalable data practices to enable all teams at Metacore to make data-driven decisions. In practice, that means (at least) the following:

  • Work closely with development, marketing, operations and finance to build easy to understand game data models and analytical frameworks

  • Improve all aspects of our data practices to support game development and operations

  • Build thought leadership within the data domain by coaching and sharing best practices to data people working in game teams

  • Take ownership of our technical data platform and tools, used for collecting and analyzing data, generating reports and data visualization

  • Use data visualization to increase visibility of important key metrics to different stakeholders

  • Manage multiple projects at a time in a fast-paced, results-oriented environment


Every role is eventually shaped to match our unique passions, backgrounds and strengths. Here are some of the key skills and experience you should already have when joining Metacore as a Data Lead:

  • Several years of experience working as a game or product data scientist, preferably in a lead position working close to business operations

  • Understanding games and game development and/or B2C online business and consumer segmentation – to support our game teams across broad range of game development stages

  • Situation awareness to successfully support our game teams in data-driven decision-making

  • System thinking, so you can see the big picture and understand how to improve our games as well as support game teams

  • Our tech stack includes data analysis techniques, languages, software and systems, like R or Python, and SQL – so we expect you to have knowledge of these

Sounds about right? Then let’s talk!
