In the past, professional sports were all about the gut feelings and collected wisdom of coaches leading the way to victory, but as analytics have become all but essential in the world of pro athletics, SportekJobs is a platform that speaks to a hole in the market. The site is a job board specifically for people with tech knowledge who are looking to get into the sporting field.

Sports analytics began with the pioneering work of Bill James and others in baseball, which made sense considering that even in its earliest days, baseball had always been broken down into relatively detailed numbers. Over the past decade or so, though, more and more organizations across different sports have embraced the power of computing and mathematics to find optimal strategies (rather than having to defer to the coach as sage and guru.) SportekJobs is a way to help more tech professionals get involved in professional sports.
