FanGraphs Is Hiring! Seeking Site Contributors

FanGraphs is now accepting applications to join our staff as a contributing writer.

Contributors typically write two to three times a week. Familiarity and comfort with the data here on FanGraphs is a requirement, but just as importantly, we’re looking for writers who can generate their own ideas and questions while providing interesting analysis or commentary on the game of baseball. From free agent signings to statistical analysis, teams’ top prospects to in-game strategy, highlights to lowlights, we want to cover it all. Sometimes we do that with a bit of silliness; other times, we’re more serious. But what all of our work has in common is a commitment to asking interesting questions and using rigor, creativity, and the latest analytical tools to find the answers for our readers.

This is a part-time, paid position. Prior writing experience is strongly preferred, though the bulk of that experience doesn’t necessarily have to be of the baseball variety. We know 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, and encourage writers of all backgrounds and identities to apply.

If you think you would be a good fit at FanGraphs, please send us an email at wanted@fangraphs.com with your application materials, using the subject line “FanGraphs Contributor 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 wanted@fangraphs.com email address, simply fill out a contact form with the same subject (“FanGraphs Contributor 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 3. 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.

Can’t recommend the site enough as someone who contributed for multiple years a while back.
