Having one or more of the following skills and qualities will help you in your role and increase your chances of getting it:

  • Black belt in Excel
  • General data wrangling and analysis experience
  • BI Tools experience (Power BI, Tableau etc.)
  • General database and/or programming experience (e.g. SQL, Python etc.)
  • Experience with creating data visualizations, dashboards and reports
  • Writing and communication
  • Experience working with mobile games
  • A/B Testing or other statistical hypothesis tests
  • Telemetry or in-game analytics
  • Knowledge of the game production process

 

The Team

As a member of the growing Raw Fury Sales Team, you are an integral part of visualizing and optimizing the success of our games and platform partnerships, working closely with the team’s business developers and account managers. But \*cue X-Files opening theme\* we are not alone! As the Analyst you will constantly find yourself collaborating with other departments and people, with Brand, Finance, and Production as the usual suspects.

About 
Raw Fury

We’re Raw Fury, an unusual indie game publisher with heavy focus on individual autonomy and with an insatiable desire to sign magical experiences that move us. We’re just people. Just people with an abnormal interest in games. Okay, it goes beyond that. All of us believe that games matter. They are the marriage of art and craft. They can elevate, change, entertain, surprise, and move people. They’re the modern vessels for our stories – our imagination. They facilitate communication and communion.

What benefits do you offer?

  • Flexible hours
  • Remote friendly since 2015
  • 30 PTO days + national holidays
  • Gym reimbursement

The Tenets of Fury

Principles We Work by:

  • Treat People like People. Transparency, mutual respect, and trust are the basis of making this work.
  • For Happiness, over Profit. We work with people we like, focus on happiness, and believe money comes as a derivative of people feeling happy and motivated to do their best work.
  • Games are Art. They can touch people. To change minds and hearts. They can transmute an idea into something new.
Featured Game

Embark on a unique and unforgettable journey and guide Sable (Shedworks) through her Gliding; a rite of passage that will take her across vast deserts and mesmerizing landscapes, capped by the remains of spaceships and ancient wonders.

Townscaper (Oskar Stålberg) is an indie city builder video game. Build quaint island towns with curvy streets. Build small hamlets, soaring cathedrals, canal networks, or sky cities on stilts. Block by block.

Call of the Sea (Out of the Blue Games) is an otherworldly tale of mystery and love set in the 1930s South Pacific. Explore a lush island paradise, solve puzzles and unlock secrets in the hunt for your husband’s missing expedition.

👋 A note from Work With Indies: Rachel and Mai recently joined us for an AMA in our Discord server to answer questions about their then-open Graphic Designer role. While that role has been closed, they also answered questions about Raw Fury's culture, working remotely, and transitioning from outside of games into Raw Fury. You can read the full recap here.

"The #1 thing I love about working at Raw Fury (#2 being flexibility) is the people. Our coworkers and our developers. Our colleagues in a different timezone are SO NICE... There are meetings just to chat over coffee, biannual meetups to meet in person, and various chats to ensure team cohesion!" - Rachel
