Join the SoxProspects Team!

At SoxProspects.com, we are always looking for new members to join our staff. At times, we post specific job openings for positions of need, and for some positions we accept applications on a year-round basis. Below is a list of our specific open postings for positions of need and those positions for which we are always looking for new teammates. If you are interested in joining our team and believe you're qualified, please read the below and apply!

Joining the SoxProspects staff is a great opportunity to gain experience in the field of sports media. Members of the staff have gone on to write for MLB.com, MiLB.com, the Baltimore Sun, Newsday, and Baseball Prospectus, among other outlets! Some staffers who have distinguished themselves over an extended period have been given other multimedia opportunities such as writing for ESPN Boston or making appearances on podcasts or radio. Others have gone on to become part owners of the site.

Please note that all positions on the SoxProspects.com staff are volunteer positions. If you are interested in applying, please email info@soxprospects.com, preferably including a resume and a basic overview of your relevant skills and experience. Apologies in advance that we might not be able to personally respond to every applicant. Thanks to everyone for their interest!

The following are basic requirements for all positions on the SoxProspects staff:
 • Professional attitude and approach
 • Some experience (direct or analogous) related to the position for which you are applying
 • Strong attention to detail
 • Basic familiarity with SoxProspects.com and the Red Sox minor league system
 • A perfunctory understanding of baseball statistics
 • Ability to work independently without much hand-holding or oversight. To be upfront - we all work remotely, there is minimal face-to-face interaction, and we all have full-time jobs or school separate from the site.
 
Current Open Positions

Staff Writer. We are looking to add a new Staff Writer for 2002. Responsibilities of the position will generally include writing our Cup of Coffee daily recap once or twice a week, taking a regular turn compiling our Weekly Notes, and writing other recurring articles on SoxProspects News such as our weekly and monthly off-season features. Strong performance could lead to expanded opportunity to contribute to feature series. We estimate that the time commitment for this position is roughly 2-4 hours per week.

Graphic Designer. We are hiring for an immediate opening for a Graphic Designer to help supplement our social media channels. Most importantly, we would love to hire a designer to produce content for our Twitter feed. Secondarily, this role could also contribute to our Instagram and Facebook pages. We estimate that the time commitment for this position is roughly 2-3 hours per week.

Web Editor. We currently have two immediate openings for the position of Web Editor. The position’s primary responsibility is to update the stats and news links on the SoxProspects.com home page 2-3 days per week during the season. Other responsibilities may include updating the rosters, transactions, and related pages after transactions occur in the Red Sox system. The main requirements are web editing experience and availability to make the stat updates in the mornings 2-3 days per week during the season. We estimate that the time commitment for this position is roughly 2-3 hours per week.
 
Year-Round Hiring

Scout. We are always open to accepting resumes for the Scout position. Prior experience in scouting, playing the game at a highly competitive level, or working for a college or professional baseball team is required. Unfortunately this is not an entry-level position for someone who wants to learn about scouting from the ground up. A successful applicant will have demonstrated some competency and/or experience in player evaluation prior to hiring. Applicants must also have the ability to attend games played by Red Sox affiliate clubs, and therefore should live within a reasonable distance from parks at which Red Sox affilaites play.
