Location: Kent, WA or Remote
Compensation: Seasonal, $2500/mo. No additional benefits.
Start Date: As early as September 15, 2021
End Date: Approximately March 1, 2022, but exceptional applicants may be offered an extension
Candidates will be expected to work ~40 hours per week.
If a candidate decides to relocate to Kent, WA, no financial relocation assistance is offered. However, Driveline will put you in contact with a number of affordable short-term housing options upon accepting the role, if offered.
You will spend your time helping collect, organize, and integrate the various data sources under the hood at Driveline Baseball, working with their various stakeholders (Baseball Operations Analysts, the Data Science Team, their Software Engineers, etc) to provide optimal data solutions for various processes, models, and dashboards. These solutions will directly impact training floor operations and data collection systems, special research projects that expand the sphere of baseball knowledge, and aid in consulting with professional players and organizations.
This position will plug straight into production-level projects and platforms (including Driveline’s API suite of software tools and endpoints, EDGE, and their enterprise software platform, TRAQ) and be expected not only to help shore up data pipelines and databases, but also be ready to approach and identify new data sources and automation opportunities as they come. Driveline is a growing start-up constantly looking to push the boundaries — taking initiative and thinking critically around data problems is a must for this position.
Essential Duties and Responsibilities:
This isn’t a front office “hidden” position where you crank out data and no one is counting on you – you will be interfacing daily with professional athletes and coaches.
A Great Candidate Demonstrates:
What Is Not Required:
– Any form of college education. Driveline cares more about the skills you have in the present rather than where you learned them from.
End of Internship:
Full-time roles are not guaranteed at the end of the internship. Candidates will be evaluated on an individual basis for full-time roles or internship extensions.
To apply, please complete the form found here. Applications are due by September 15, 2021.
