Hey Grinders! We’re looking to add to our team of alerts/news writers for the upcoming MLB season, and we always like to open things up to our existing community. Details for the roles are listed below.
MLB News Writer – This role is dependent upon you being able to react quickly to news and create strong blurbs with a DFS spin. Note that at times this may take priority over updating your DFS Lineups. We’re looking for people who can be around a computer for the entirety of their shift – this is not a role you can take on if you’d have to do it remotely or on the go. Having a decent Twitter presence is also a plus here given that a large majority of player news is broken there. Our goal here is to be both quick and accurate when it comes to breaking news regarding starting lineups, lineup upgrades (e.g. a bench player filling in as the leadoff hitter) and general DFS MLB strategy. Prior writing experience is a huge plus.
MLB Lineups Page – This role is a little different in that it’s not centered around writing at all, but is dependent upon you being able to find confirmed MLB lineups/news via social media in a quick and accurate manner. If you’ve had experience tracking DFS news in the past, that is a big plus. We’re looking for people who can be around a computer for the entirety of their shift – this is not a role you can take on if you’d have to do it remotely or on the go. Looking for help on both the weekdays and weekends – this role works best for people who have availability during the day (roughly noon till lineup lock), but we can be flexible for the right fit.
If you are interested in either of the above roles, email firstname.lastname@example.org. — In all applications, please be sure to include the following:
1. Your availability in terms of days/hours that you could be by a computer (include weekend availability)
2. List of any prior writing/news reporting experience
3. Background as a DFS Grinder/Player (how long have you been playing, what sports do you excel at, etc.)
4. Your RotoGrinders Username
5. Your Twitter Handle (if applicable)
6. 2-3 sentences on why you’d be a good fit for the role you’re applying for
I’ll leave this post up till Friday the 15th!
