About the role
The Tennis Analyst department creates bespoke tennis data using our own software solutions which inputs directly into our Research department. Successful applicants will work in a specialised Tennis team delivering superior scoring information, learning the processes of data collection, and taking an active role in the quality assurance and development of the product. A passion for all levels of tennis is a must, as well as attention to detail, self-motivation, and a willingness to learn on the job. The role will include contracted hours over weekends, Bank Holidays, and occasionally overnights.
Our story began 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 a Yellow Pages listing was a priority at the time and led to Mark opting for '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 20 years, and the company now boasts one of the largest commercial statistical research teams in Europe and is a leader in the field of the application of statistical modelling in sports. We have created and continue to develop a collection of statistical and mathematical models that allow sporting outcomes to be predicted with unparalleled accuracy.
