What We Do

Big League Advance, LLC (BLA) is an investment fund that provides minor league baseball players with the resources they need to help make their dream a reality. Players receive capital - not loans - and a player keeps the funds whether or not he ever makes it to the Major Leagues. For players who make it to the Major Leagues, we share in their success. We are currently exploring new opportunities within the world of sports where we can utilize our analytic capabilities to make an impact. 

We are looking to hire a data engineer with significant experience in building data pipelines—extraction, automated cleaning, data modeling, and storage. Candidate must be comfortable working in a modern, cloud-based ecosystem, and adept with relational databases and at least one general purpose programming language.

  • Build and maintain data pipelines
  • Manage ETL processes
  • Scrape, clean and store data from various different sources


  • Bachelors or Masters Degree in Computer Science, Statistics, or quantitative field
  • Proficient in at least one general-purpose programming language
  • Significant experience building and maintaining relational databases
  • Experience working in a modern, cloud-based ecosystem
