Hey—the 2nd-best team in baseball is looking for a Bayesian!

We are currently looking to hire a Bayesian Statistician to join the Houston Astros’ Research & Development team. They would join a growing, cutting-edge R&D team that consists of analysts from a variety of backgrounds and which is involved in all key baseball decisions at the Astros.

Here’s a link to the job posting on Stack Overflow; if anyone in particular comes to mind, we’d appreciate your encouraging them to apply. They’re also welcome to reach out to me directly if they want to further discuss the role and/or working in baseball.

They just need one more left-handed Bayesian to put them over the top.

    May be called on to model the value of illegal sign stealing?

    Generating sign stealing algorithms actually seems like a pretty interesting statistical problem.

    Reach out to me. I have a burning passion for the love of baseball, a Mechanical Engineering degree from UT Tyler, am very analytical and detail oriented and would love to hear back from you on this!
