BP Job Postings

Two Technical Positions Available

by Rob McQuown

Baseball Prospectus is hiring. There are currently two positions open for detail-oriented people with SQL expertise and strong written communication skills. Familiarity with advanced baseball statistics is a big plus. The work will be remote and the hours very flexible, with a minimum expectation of about 20 hours/week.

TECHNICAL

The following skills will be the primary requirements:

  • MySQL or other SQL experience.

  • Extensive Technical Writing experience (samples highly recommended), ideally including code documentation.

Strong candidates will also offer some of the following:

  • Experience as a technical trainer, with a focus on communicating advanced concepts in a manner that can be understood by people unfamiliar with the concepts.

  • Use of graphical props in technical writing (such as graphs, flowcharts, data diagrams, etc.)

  • Experience working with Retrosheet and PITCHf/x data.

  • Experience with UNIX

  • Experience designing web applications in PHP (or another similar language) using MySQL.

Please submit resume and portfolio to jobs@baseballprospectus.com with email subject "Baseball Prospectus Technical Applicant." Only independently productive individuals need apply. If applicable, send a portfolio with samples or links to the work you've done (both technical and writing/documentation). It doesn't have to be professional or about baseball.
