Want to Work for a Major League Team?

I’m sure there are more than a few FanGraphs readers qualified for this job:

Major League organization is looking for a motivated individual with significant (5+ years) experience in both web development and database application design/maintenance for a full-time position. Must have experience or working knowledge in all of the following areas: Linux (Ubuntu a plus), PHP, PostgreSQL, HTML, CSS, Unix Shell Scripting, Python, Ruby, and XML data importing. Understanding baseball statistics and player evaluation methodologies is also required. Love of baseball will definitely help but is not strictly required.

Please send your resume and a brief explanation of your experience to mlbprogrammer@gmail.com.

    It isn’t all that hard to get hired by a MLB team. My cousin briefly worked for the Mets in video. Apparently Rick Peterson is a bit of a jerk.

    But I’ve also heard others have great experiences.

    It’s enough to make even a robot wince.

    Huh! Interesting- pretty much what I do, plus the obsession with baseball. Odd email address and lack of specificity, but what the hey. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yeah, I don’t think this qualifies as an Fangrpahs’ reader’s “dream job.”

    But who knows. Work is work. And it would be pretty cool to say you work for an MLB team.

    I just think its great that this sort of opening would even be mentioned here, despite the fact that I meet none of the requirements and have a job I already enjoy.

    Why is this req sent anonymously with a gmail address? Why wouldn’t it be from a MLB team’s address or at least something @mlb.com? This seems kind of fishy.
