Senior Data Analyst

Twitch, Irvine, CA

Video platform and community for gamers

Data is central to Twitch’s decision-making process, and analysts are a critical component to evangelize data-driven decision making in all of our operations. As an analyst at Twitch, you will be in on the ground floor with your team, shaping the way product performance is measured, defining what questions should be asked, and scaling analytics methods and tools to support our growing business, leading the way for high quality, high velocity decisions for your team.

For this role, we’re looking for an experienced data analyst who will help set the strategy for our web, desktop, and mobile clients by helping us measure, interpret, and experiment with product features.

You’ll also take on tactical work to measure the effectiveness of product releases, and you’ll help develop self-service reporting tools to support the entire team. We’re seeking an individual who has the vision and follow-through to make analytics best in class at Twitch.


  • Be the point of contact for your team’s data needs: manage communications with your stakeholders and other internal teams, and collaborate with others to influence the direction of data analysis, tools, and platforms.
  • Establish analytical framework for your team: partner with product and engineering teams to define measurement approach, quantify and evaluate success, and develop KPIs and guide tracking efforts for ongoing measurement and reporting. 
  • Tackle complex and ambiguous analytic projects: resolve ambiguity as much as possible in all stages, comfortably flex among various tools to answer complicated questions, and accurately identify the trade-offs between speed and quality and apply or route work as necessary.
  • Efficiently prioritize and execute what’s important: prioritize for both speed and impact, and aggressively optimize for return by focusing on work output that scales well and is reusable. 
  • Be an effective mentor for both your team and the company through your deep domain and process expertise, and your broad understanding of our data structure  and stores, increasing the data literacy of your team.
  • Maintain a culture of high quality output and exceptional customer service:  effectively communicate at all levels, ensure that work gets done well and on time, respond effectively to unexpected obstacles and reallocate resources as necessary.


  • 5+ years of domain experience, preferably in a high-velocity, high-growth product or business unit.
  • Expert SQL skills. Your ability to tap into our data pipeline will be key to your success.
  • Proven track record of using data to generate insight and drive business results.
  • Fluency in data analysis and communication around data, including time series analysis, experimentation, data visualization, and defining KPI strategy for your business.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
