Ever dream of working for your favorite NBA team? Well now might be your chance. The 76ers have listed a number of entry level jobs that could let you live out your professional dream.
Player Development Staff
This is an incredibly rare opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the 76ers rebuild. Good candidates should have coaching experience and be able to assist with practice. That’s right. You’d be helping mold the careers of rookies Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams, as well as be able to get up close and personal with the Royce White Show. An opportunity like this is rare, and is likely only available because there is a new coaching staff and front office. Check out the listing here.
You would be working as part of the Sixer’s ticket sales staff, and it is most likely the highest paid public job opening of all the 76ers jobs. The team’s attendance has been struggling since Allen Iverson left town, and this would be your way to help the team fill those seats. Good attendance is vital to luring potential free agents and being able to afford them. Check out the requirements here, but this is definitely the most accessible job to the everyday fan.
Video Coordinator (or Assistant)
This job actual gives us fans some insights into the kind of front office Sam Hinkie will be running. He will be using everything available, including new video technology like Synergy, to improve his understanding of the team. Candidates need to know basketball software, but if you can land this job, you will be in Hinkie’s orbit. Check the opportunities out here.
There are a wide range of internship opportunities available, including New Media, Video, and Analytics. Don’t be fooled though, you still need some heavy skills to land one of these, but it could be a great entry point to the close-knit league community. You can view these and all of the job listings here.
I realize I might sound like I’m working for the Sixers, but fear not, The Sixer Sense is independent from the team (making sure that we can bring you objective analysis). I just got excited by the long list of available opportunities, and wanted to share them with you.
Not interested in any of the 76ers jobs but still want to be more involved than your average fan? Consider writing for The Sixer Sense. Trust me, it’s awesome.
