Location: Kent, WA

Benefits: Healthcare, profit sharing, opportunity for work-related paid travel (all after probationary period).
Start Date: Mid-January, 2019
Full-time salaried and exempt on-site hours of ~50 hours per week. This is not a remote position.

Minor financial relocation assistance is offered in the form of a one-time cash payment to assist with travel.
Description: Driveline Baseball is looking for a skilled full-stack integration engineer to join their growing Research and Development team in Seattle. Driveline Baseball secures contracts with multiple MLB teams year-round, providing external amateur draft reports, player development assistance, and on-site implementation of the physical products they manufacture and develop in-house. Driveline Baseball also trains hundreds of elite collegiate and professional hitters and pitchers in their three building complex in Kent, Washington, 20 minutes south of downtown Seattle.
The ideal candidate will have interest in both sports science and sabermetrics, with a desire to broaden their horizons into other fields Driveline is pursuing, such as logistics, manufacturing, and rapid prototyping. Candidates will not be judged based on their formal education background, or lack thereof; the best candidates to come through Driveline Baseball have a varied and colorful history with a portfolio of failed, half-completed, and blocked sports projects of all types. Self-starters, initiative-takers, and those with a healthy skepticism of authority fit in well in the R&D department of Driveline Baseball.
Unlike MLB organizations, at Driveline Baseball, the members of the R&D team work directly and regularly with minor and major league players. You will be communicating directly with big leaguers who will depend on your statistical and quantitative reports to improve their training methods and their pitch selection. You will also deal directly with front office executives and will be expected to take a leading role in directing interns and organizing third-party vendors within months of joining the Driveline team.
This isn’t your average software developer position where you’d be siloed in the front office and seen but not heard – you’ll be on the lines of battle, integrating APIs at a standing desk, standing up servers, figuring out why the network is configured incorrectly, and documenting all the processes you’re in charge of. Bonus points for those who can throw batting practice and have fungo skills.

Wage: DOE; Full Time, Hourly
Benefits: Healthcare, 10 days PTO
