About Sports Info Solutions
Pioneers in the Sports Data Industry
SIS was founded on the belief that decision making in sports could be improved and that we could help teams win more games through the use of better data, analytics, and technology.
That belief has been validated repeatedly since our founding in 2002 as we continue to revolutionize the way the game is played on and off the field.
Our mission is to enrich and optimize the decision-making process for sports teams, sportsbooks, and sports fans.
We are proud to have been leaders in collecting, analyzing and distributing the deepest data sets and insights to professional sports teams across the MLB, NBA and NFL.
In the beginning, John Dewan set out to change the way baseball was played, by taking on Project Scoresheet alongside Bill James, bringing about a new wave of baseball statistics that have become common in today’s vernacular. That deep passion and understanding of sports and data has remained central to the core at SIS, as our organization has evolved to include former professional and collegiate athletes, coaches, scouts alongside our best-in-class technology and research analysts. Simply put, we go deeper.
We are now doubling down on what’s made us successful by further advancing our data, technology, insights and partners as we drive forward the next innovations in Sports Data and Analytics.
SIS is looking for highly motivated individuals with a desire to work in the baseball industry and/or in video production. Video Editors will have a chance to make an immediate impression on the company and clients during their time with us. Each Video Editor will be using video that is directly used by SIS clients (including major league teams) for advance scouting and evaluation purposes. Not only will the Video Editors become more familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of hundreds of minor league players, but they will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the baseball statistics industry.
We take pride in making our internships great development opportunities for those looking to get their start in the baseball industry. In addition to gaining invaluable experience reviewing thousands of players across different levels, we offer introductory classes that cover creating scouting reports and using the database management language, SQL. We also provide insight and advice from previous SIS Employees who have branched out into a variety of areas in the sports industry.
