SIS Seeks Research and Development Intern

Our charting partners at Sports Info Solutions are looking for candidates to fill a paid internship in their R&D Department in the summer and fall seasons. Ideally, the candidate will be available in early-to-mid June through the end of the year. The intern will work out of their office near Allentown, Pennyslvania. Recent R&D interns have landed internships and full-time jobs with major league teams.

The position requires a variety of skills including (but not limited to) an analytical mind, computer expertise, writing ability, and a passion for football and baseball.

Ideal candidates will possess:

  • Familiarity with contemporary football/baseball/sports analytics and research
  • Analytical/Mathematical ability
  • Proficiency working in Microsoft Office programs (or equivalents), especially Excel
  • Experience with MySQL, SQL Server, or similar databases
  • An ability to write and communicate effectively with a variety of audiences
  • An ability to work both collaboratively and independently
  • Experience with other statistical packages (e.g. R), programming languages (e.g. Python, .NET), and/or graphical visualizations (e.g. Tableau) would be a plus

You'll be working with projects associated with the Football Outsiders-SIS partnership, so this would be a great internship for a regular FO reader. But please only apply if you also know baseball as well as football.
