The Los Angeles Dodgers Baseball Systems team is committed to building and maintaining the technological platforms for baseball data, analysis, and decision-making for the Dodgers, and to providing technical expertise and advice across Dodger Baseball Operations. We focus on both the tools needed to put a winning team on the field today and those we need to ensure a winning future. The data engineering group within Baseball Systems operates the data platform used throughout Baseball Operations. We design, implement, and maintain the processes that bring in game, tracking, and scouting data, make them available to the rest of the Dodgers, and in turn re-ingest output from analytics to make that available as well.

You will be responsible for implementing new ETL services and working with combining baseball data sources to create a cohesive view of games and plays. You will support the health of our data platform across relational databases, non-relational stores, and cloud file storage. You will collaborate with the rest of Baseball Operations to make sure that the data we provide them is complete, accurate, and meets their needs.

We work together to build and maintain a winning, industry-leading team. If you are also enthusiastic about baseball and want to see your work reflected on the field and in the box score, please contact us!
