The Philadelphia Phillies are a Major League Baseball club based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in 1883, the Phillies are the oldest, continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional sports.
The work of a Software Engineer (SWE) at the Phillies extends well beyond merely coding. As a SWE you contribute fresh ideas in a variety of areas, including information retrieval, networking and data storage, security, machine learning, natural language processing, UI design and mobile to shape the evolution of the Phillies baseball analytics systems. You are not necessarily an expert or even familiar with all of these areas but you do have a growth mindset and a passion for learning from and sharing your knowledge with your colleagues.
Our ideal engineers will have a versatile skill set, be enthusiastic to handle new challenges and demonstrate leadership qualities. You will work closely with end-users across Scouting, Player Development and the Major League Coaching Staff while building software tools from the ground up. By identifying appropriate design specifications through collaboration with those end-users, you will build applications that conform to user needs.
Specific areas of focus may include, but are not limited to, the draft, free-agency, player valuation, player development, in-game strategy, and injury prevention. As a SWE you will have the opportunity to use your technical expertise to create software solutions that impact decision-making at the Phillies.
Interested applicants should submit both their resume and an answer to the following question:
What is your favorite programming language to use and why do you like it? (There is no right or wrong language; we’re interested in how you think critically about the tools you use)
Tip: Again, there’s no defined right or wrong answer. Responses are used to get some insight into how you approach problem solving and technology in general.
Please submit your resume and question response no later than Sunday, October 31, 2021.
Interview Process: Resume Review -> Take home questionnaire (Tests your ability to review code and your familiarity with and ability to implement software engineering fundamentals) -> 1-3 video interviews:
