RT @Neil_Paine: Thanks, everybody! I'm really excited about joining the 538 team!
Neil (@Neil_Paine) combines outstanding writing, statistical, and technical skills--and crosses over many sports. An A+ candidate for us.
Ben (@skepticalsports) is an amazing thinker and writer who understads both the power and the limitations of sports analytics.
FiveThirtyEight is also hiring two sports writers/analysts. (We are owned by ESPN, after all). Every bit as excited about them.
Mona will be the lead writer for EveryData, our bloglike/streamlike product, engaging with the news and our readers on a daily basis.
We'll have three more FiveThirtyEight hires to announce in a few minutes. Especially excited about this group.
Data visualization and interactive graphics are central to 538's mission. We're working with @ascheink to hire a team & will post jobs soon.
Andrei (@ascheink) is also a former colleague of ours at NYT. His 538 title is Deputy Editor and Director of Data and Technology.
