My company is advertising for a position working in football analytics. We help clubs assess player valuations, team performance and squad composition, among other things.
The modeling team is just me at the moment and everything is done in Stan. Football is a fascinating problem from a statistical point of view. There are 22 players on the pitch, but an average of only 2.5 goals per game. There are also several leagues around the world at very different levels, and competitions between national teams, so the sport is crying out for people interested in hierarchical modeling and feature engineering.
If you are interested, please apply, and if you know anyone who might be interested, please get the word out! Here’s the a link to further details.
