FanGraphs Is Hiring! Seeking a Full-Time Writer

FanGraphs is now accepting applications to join our staff as a full-time writer.

We’re looking for someone who can provide daily insight about the ins and outs of what is happening in the game. From free agent signings to statistical analysis, teams’ top prospects to in-game strategy, highlights to lowlights, we want to cover it all. Familiarity and comfort with the data here at FanGraphs is a requirement, but just as importantly, we’re looking for a writer who can generate their own ideas and questions while providing interesting analysis and commentary on the game of baseball.

This is a full-time, salaried position with benefits. As FanGraphs is a web-based company, relocation is not required; this job can be completed from most geographic locations, as long as you have reliable internet access and are willing to work during the hours that readers in the United States are awake. We encourage writers of all backgrounds and identities to apply; baseball analysis is more interesting and complete when diverse perspectives and voices are brought to bear on the questions and trends in today’s game.

If you have a passion for writing about baseball and think you’d be a good fit for the site, please send us an email at with your application materials, using the subject line “FanGraphs Full-Time Writer Application – 2022”. The subject line is important, as it helps us keep all of the applications organized and ensures that yours does not slip through the cracks. When applying, please include samples or links to work you’ve published previously, or some new, original content you feel best demonstrates your writing abilities and interests. You may also include a resume, but it is not required for the initial application. If for some reason you are unable to submit your application using the email address, simply fill out a contact form with the same subject (“FanGraphs Full-Time Writer Application – 2022”), and you will be provided with an alternate email address for submission.

However you send us your application, please do so by Friday, June 10. We can’t promise to respond to every application we receive, but we will make sure every applicant receives serious consideration.

We look forward to hearing from you.

David Appelman is the creator of FanGraphs.

This is welcome news. Hopefully hiring is an indication that some of the covid related financial distress is behind you. Looking forward to the addition of new voices and ideas!

It’s thanks to the continued support of readers like you! I know I’ll never forget how the community had our back in 2020 and then again when it looked like 2022 was in jeopardy.
