fiveonenine games is seeking a smart and energetic behavioral economist or consumer behavior expert to join its quickly growing social games team! Dedicated to quickly becoming one of the top social mobile/web publishers, http://www.fiveoneninegames.com, fiveonenine games, is the social entertainment joint venture of two leading media companies, The E.W. Scripps Company and Capitol Broadcasting.
The position will develop and refine in-game economies while collaborating with key decision makers on new game features. They will be responsible for working with our product development teams to decide how the virtual economies are structured and optimized in every mobile and web social game.
I'm hoping games will develop demand for in-game economic policy commentators to complain about the performance of the economists running the in-game economies.
