Analyst, Business and Gameplay Insights - Hearthstone
Global Insights Irvine, California

A lot more goes into the creation of a Blizzard product than the work of developers—and we support our games for years after they’re in the hands of gamers worldwide.  Blizzard Entertainment is seeking an Analyst to lead strategic analysis focused on identification, evaluation, and execution of opportunities to drive growth and operational excellence for the Hearthstone franchise.
