About the Role
We are seeking highly motivated individuals to join our research team. Successful applicants will work within new and established multi-skilled teams to develop novel statistical and mathematical models with applications to sports analytics, including probabilistic forecasting of future events.
Our story began back in 1998 when Mark Dixon, a university statistics lecturer, decided to set up a one-man-band consultancy offering statistical modelling and research services. Featuring near the top of the Yellow Pages listings was a priority at the time and led to Mark opting for the name “Advanced Training and Statistical Services” - or ATASS for short. Increasingly, his love of football led him to take on more and more sports-related work, and by 2001, he and a handful of colleagues were working under the new identity of ATASS Sports.
Fast-forward 21 years, and the company now boasts one of the largest commercial statistical research teams in Europe and is a leader in the field of applying statistical and mathematical modelling to sports. We have created and continue to develop a collection of state-of-the-art models that allow sporting outcomes to be predicted with unparalleled accuracy.
About Oxygen House
ATASS Sports is based at Oxygen House, our award-winning headquarters in Exeter, where we have a range of on-site facilities that are available to everyone in the Oxygen House team. There’s an outdoor all-weather pitch for netball, football and tennis, a gym offering regular fitness classes, a café serving delicious local and organic food, and a break-out area for playing table tennis, darts, pool and table football. We’re also constantly organising events and activities throughout the year to socialise as a team and to support our charities. Our work is serious business - but we’re all about having fun while we do it.
