Title: Junior Quantitative Analyst

Department: Quantitative Analysis
Status: Full Time
Reports to: Director, Quantitative Analysis
Deadline: November 20, 2020

The Quantitative Analysis team is responsible for researching and developing data-driven metrics and tools that enhance decision-making throughout baseball operations. The Dodgers are seeking to hire a Junior Quantitative Analyst to join the team. As a member of the team, you will work with and learn from experts in statistics, computer science, biomechanics and other disciplines. This position offers growth potential and the opportunity to see the impact of your work on the field.

Job Functions:

  • Maintain models and products previously developed by the Quantitative Analysis team
  • Review new code and models developed by the Quantitative Analysis team
  • Perform ad hoc data analyses to answer urgent questions from front office leadership and other groups within baseball operations
  • Prepare presentations and reports to communicate model results to the front office, as well as staff from coaching, scouting and player development
  • Learn about industry software tools and advanced statistical models as guided by other members of the Quantitative Analysis team
  • Assist with and manage personnel-related manners, such as reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates and overseeing intern projects

Basic Requirements/Qualifications:

  • Relevant experience in data science (such as a bachelor’s degree in a STEM field, programming experience, and/or past statistical analysis/research)
  • Experience with R or Python
  • Ability to communicate effectively in speech and in writing about technical and non-technical concepts

An Ideal Candidate:

  • Has passion for data science and may be new to the field
  • Brings additional experience from a field outside of data science which could be applied to baseball (such as physics, psychology or design, to name a few)
  • Is eager to learn from the Quantitative Analysis team and grow as a data scientist, taking on greater responsibility in the future

Additional Information:

  • The start date is flexible; the Dodgers will consider candidates who are unavailable until summer
  • The candidate will need to work on-site in Los Angeles once the Dodgers’ offices safely re-open (they do not know when this will be)
  • Visa sponsorship is unlikely for this position

When you apply, please submit a one-page resume and a data science work sample (PDF strongly preferred for both). The work sample might be an old class project, or a hobby project, or a link to something you published online. The work sample need NOT be related to baseball. If you are able to include the code you used for the project (e.g. as a GitHub link), that is a plus.
