Consider turning your passion into a CAREER!
ESPN is looking for people with diverse backgrounds, education, experience, and elite-level knowledge of professional team sports.
ESPN Statistics & Information Group
Areas within the Statistics and Information Group include: Bottom Line, Production Research and Stats & Analysis
If statistics, storylines, news-headline writing and editing are a big part of your sports game, then the Stats and Information Group is the place for you. We are a pressure-packed, exciting work environment specializing in information dissemination across ESPN. Our product is seen across multiple platforms -- television, ESPN.com, ESPN The Magazine, and ESPN Mobile Publishing.
S&I is three departments in one: Stats & Analysis Team, Production Research and Update Services (the Bottom Line).
The Stats & Analysis Team serves all of the company’s entities with real-time scoring, statistics, updates and all statistical information for pro and college sports, including Next-Level Statistics (Statistics that go deeper, or are more non-traditional, generated by the use of video tracking, mining in our data warehouses or through the use of websites that delve into more analytical statistics/processes).
Production Researchers ensure the accuracy of live news-and-information shows such as SportsCenter or ESPNEWS and sport-specific shows on baseball, football, basketball and other sports. Responsibilities include researching original content for full-screen graphics (including Next-Level Statistics), anchor lead-ins and original pieces, and providing live updates to talent in studio. Additionally, researchers need expert-level recall of sports history and current events to provide statistical or factual analysis of games, news stories and topical issues.
Update Services manages the editorial operations of ESPN's domestic "Bottom Line" services. Staff members are accountable for the accuracy and timeliness of all content, as well as editorial decisions and writing and editing headline bulletins in a real-time environment.
Members of these teams must be passionate about sports and statistics; in fact, they should possess elite-level sports knowledge. Strong communication skills are necessary, as is an affinity for detail. Accuracy is essential. They must thrive under deadline and be willing to work non-traditional hours (nights, weekends, and holidays). We have team members who come from all levels of experience and fill positions ranging from entry level to seasoned professional.
If you’re interested in a full-time position or internship with any of these departments, please email a copy of your updated resume, phone number and description of your sports knowledge to email@example.com AND create a profile through www.espn.com/joinourteam. You must complete both of these steps in order to be considered.
