Data Engineer SERIOUSLY / Helsinki, Finland

PUBLISHED: July 12, 2021

Did you know that Seriously is Finland’s 4th biggest games company in terms of revenue? Or that our game, Best Fiends, has been played more than Game of Thrones has been watched? Best Fiends has become a worldwide phenomenon with over 100 million downloads and around 2 million daily players. The game universe has expanded to include thousands of levels, hundreds of Fiends, a growing library of animated shorts, a variety of original content, a dedicated community of millions, and much, much more. Together with Playtika, we’re working towards being the biggest casual mobile games company in the West.

What does this mean from a data engineering point of view? Well, there’s loads of data, to begin with. There’s also many kinds of data, not to mention the speed of actions based on the data. Volume + Variety + Velocity = that’s how we roll. As a Data Engineer, you will join our Data Science & Data Engineering team in the Helsinki office. Some of your fellow engineers and scientists are based in our Los Angeles office. As a global team with a time zone difference, please note that some of the sync up happens around 6 pm.
