2019 Football Video Scout
Sports Info Solutions (SIS) is looking for highly motivated individuals with a desire to work in the football industry. Video Scouts will have a chance to make an immediate impression on the company. Each Video Scout will be collecting data that is directly used by SIS clients for advanced scouting and evaluation purposes. Not only will the Video Scouts become more familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of hundreds of amateur and professional players, but they will also learn about the ins and outs of the football analytics industry. Numerous Video Scouts have gone on to succeed in jobs with professional sports teams, collegiate teams and with SIS in a full-time capacity.
Strong candidates will possess great attention to detail, strong knowledge about NFL and NCAA rules, and be able to work in a collaborative team environment or independently, as needed.
