What is your name and what do you do at Ludia?
Bonie Carine Noufele Ntanke, Analytics Developer
Tell me about your career path
I have a university degree in information technology with a focus on database programming. It's my passion for data that led me to analytics. Before joining Ludia, I worked for other companies where I produced reports and did data extraction. This is what led me to what I do today.
Tell me about your day to day at Ludia
At first glance, my work may seem abstract to those who don’t know what an analytics developer does. Basically, I do data analysis, extraction and transformation which allow me to get useful statistics that directly benefit our games. With my training in programming, I create codes that transform data so that it can be interpreted. If data is not transformed, it can’t tell us a story so, the magic lies in the transformation. For example, data can tell me what our players like or dislike which allows the development team to adapt the games as needed.
What part of your job do you like the most?
I'm a very analytical person so I love the side of my job that allows me to investigate in depth. I love digging to find relevant information to help us improve our products.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced on the job?
Ludia is a rapidly growing company, which means that I have to adapt quickly to the increasing volume of data, new concepts and new technologies.
What is the most enjoyable part of working at Ludia?
What's really great is that I have the opportunity to explore new ways of working. I am encouraged to push myself and explore new things, which I really like.
Do you have a hidden talent?
Outside of work, I trade in my analytical side in favor of my creative side. I like to embroider all kinds of motifs on cushions, pillow covers, sheets and table runners. Embroidery is truly one of my favorite hobbies.
