Game Economy Designer

Mobile games dominator Gameloft, worldwide publisher of mobile and social games, is looking for

a talented Game Economy Designer to start a new Studio in Seattle!

The Game Economic Designer requires a mix of strong economy and marketing knowledge with passion for analytical game design and the emerging free-to-play business model.

The Game Economy Designer is responsibility for how the game works as a service for its customers, how the customers behave in it, identify and develop the purchase drivers in the game economy context, and provide constant data-driven recommendation on design, tuning and pricing in order to improve the game’s financial performance.



You will design the virtual products a game will offer, define metrics that allow you to individually measure their impact in a given title, and work closely with the development team to see those design refined and metrics implemented.



Once the game is launched, you will analyze the collected data and reports which are the performing/underperforming aspects of the game’s economic model, understand why, and provide solutions to Gameloft management.

You are the person that understands what users are doing in a game, why and how a game is making money, and the person we ask what to change so it makes even more money.


Responsibilities:

Define the virtual products and their statistics with the development team, and understand how each of them contributes to the game dynamics.
Indentify the potential sale drivers for the different product categories in the game economy, defining the key points of exposure for those drivers.
Balance the needs for those virtual products, their relation, life cycle, and their streams of availability.
Manage pricing as to create specific price point roles, implement selling strategies for higher price points.
Regularly provide user feedback and stat/price point tuning to development team based on play-testing, both during game development and post-release.
Analyze the evolution of the metrics you defined to spot monetization bottlenecks and facilitators. Report suggestions for the game design or strategy accordingly.
