Lionbridge Gaming is looking for a motivated, imaginative Data Engineer to join our team working on some of the biggest franchises in gaming, helping us to build high quality products that delight our customers.
This is a remote-based role, but you will need to be in the Reading area as weekly site visits will be required.
A successful candidate will design and build solutions to objectively measure the progress and status of various key quality metrics as our gaming products mature during development and their integrity once released to production. The candidate will work both collaboratively and alone to understand available data sources & models, define and construct datasets for analysis applying ETL/ELT principles, and build reporting/insights to communicate status and observations to consumers. As a team we work end-to-end with our customer game development studios and quality teams to define the questions we seek to answer via data, identify appropriate methods to accurately & reliably measure confidence/risk, author & instrument required data points to support analyses, to ultimately build a product that delivers on the requirements.
The use of data in our industry to measure product quality is an emerging and fast evolving area, and as such there is great opportunity to develop new and innovative solutions to the challenges presented. The nature and subject of our work is inherently varied as we explore efficient & effective applications of data to assess quality, but is focused on the following core areas:
Product Health: Measuring the functional quality of our gaming products against key targets
Software Development Lifecycle: Measuring our own and partner team's activity during development and the artifacts that contribute towards release confidence
Customer Value: Understanding what is of most value to our end-users, so that we can recognise and articulate those quality factors that influence a successful product
Data Quality: Ensuring that the data we leverage can be trusted to serve our derived insights.
We prioritize high quality and reliable solutions, with a focus on scalability and ease of maintenance as we continue to expand our capability in this area. We typically use Azure Data Explorer (ADX), SQL Server, Azure Data Factory, R/Shiny, Power BI, SSRS, C#, PowerShell, Visual Studio, Azure DevOps, and GIT. Skills Essentials
