Gaurav Acharekar – The Head of Analytics of Games2win.com
Age & Experience
2+ years work experience. We are open to the level of experience you bring along.
Working in line with
The already existing analysts team in the Company (Approx. 5 people).
As a practice, we have typically matched candidates with their existing salary packages and throw in lucrative performance incentives; and of course ESOPs.*
*In the exit of mobile2win China to Disney, and when Nirvana Venture Funds invested into Games2win – the group has now a proven track record of demonstrating how valuable its company ESOPs can be.
The idea is to make you take an ownership role and then provide additional compensation on performance.
Note that we do not want people to join us just for a better salary. We don’t bribe people to join us. Instead, we want people to join us for the love of what we do and the opportunity to shine professionally!

We want someone who can come in and make our games go a 100x further just using the power of data and analytics.
If this role interests you, then we have some homework for you:
Play our game Parking Frenzy (available on Android or iPhone/iPad) and tell us what would you measure inside the game and WHY. Just make a list of your suggested data points and describe them in one line on why you think that data item is important. How can the data you measure make the game better?
