Software Engineer Intern

Primary Purpose
The Cleveland Guardians are seeking an intern to join their Baseball Systems Engineering team this coming summer. The team of engineers builds software and data products that directly impact the organization’s ability to acquire, develop, and deploy players. The products you help build will facilitate operations and enhance decision-making across all areas of the organization, helping to answer questions such as “which trades should we execute,” “who should we select with our next pick in the draft,” and “how can we show players their data from yesterday’s game?” The position offers the unique opportunity to work with a variety of emerging technologies that span the entire applications stack. From data warehousing to web design, you will have the opportunity to work alongside veteran software engineers as they craft innovative solutions to challenging problems in the pursuit of the organization’s ultimate mission – winning the World Series.

We recognize that applicants will have differing dates of availability between their academic periods over the summer, and we therefore want to remain flexible with timing so that we can best accommodate each applicant’s specific start date and end date. That said, our expectation is that the internship will last ~10-14 weeks.

As a Software Engineer Intern with the Cleveland Guardians, you will:
  • Get hands-on experience writing impactful software
  • Participate in cross-functional team meetings and Agile sprint work
  • Have regular opportunities to engage with, and learn from, our Baseball Operations leadership group

Base Requirements Needed, you should have:
  • Some experience in a field such as Computer Science or another STEM program
  • Demonstrated experience writing application code
  • A proven ability to work within tight timelines
  • Effective communication skills and the ability to collaborate within a cross-functional team
  • A desire to learn and grow not only as a software engineer, but also as a person
  • A passion for baseball/sports, or a willingness to learn more about the game

Standard Requirements
  • Represent the Cleveland Guardians in a positive fashion to all business partners and the general public
  • Ability to develop and maintain successful working relationship with members of the Front Office
  • Ability to act according to the organizational values and service excellence at all times
  • Ability to work with multicultural populations and have a commitment to fairness and equality
  • Ability to work in a diverse and changing environment

About Us
In Baseball Operations and Baseball Systems, our shared goal is to identify and develop diverse players and front office teammates who contribute to our mission. By working together effectively and collaboratively, we create a family atmosphere that supports learning as we strive for excellence in everything we do. We believe that we will achieve our goals by making evidence-based decisions and creating environments that support our people and empower them to learn.

We know that people from historically marginalized groups and those who have not yet had direct experience in the sports industry are less likely to apply for a job unless they meet every requirement. That being said, we encourage anyone who meets some of the qualifications above to apply or reach out for more information.

The Cleveland Guardians are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
