Kano is looking for a Data Analyst to help us create meaningful connections through lasting social games.  To reach our goal, we need to be able to understand what our players want, and to make sure that our products and games deliver that experience. We learn a lot about our players through human interaction, but also try to understand them better through their behavior with our products. We gain that knowledge through data mining, analysis, and machine learning.

To do so is easier said than done; data is often messy, missing or even incorrect.  We need someone who is committed, highly meticulous, creative and passionate enough to pursue only the very best work possible. We not only need an individual who can clean and analyze data, but can also turn the results of that analysis into actions that can be implemented to improve our experiences. You must be outcome oriented, a relentless problem solver and unafraid of failing one hundred times to find a single success.
