New Era 3.0’s First XFL Job Post

XFL super fan Jake Henry found this post interesting on the XFL LinkedIn Page. The XFL is looking for a Controller. This would be the first job posting of the XFL 3.0 era.

The post was posted by SVP People Operations at XFL Cindy Wagner. Her name was on the XFL’s new hiring batch, but she was one of the few people to make it into the league when it went bankrupt.

Spring 2023 kicks off.

For more details on the position

One thing to note in the job description. “Please note that the station will operate remotely, preferably in the tri-state area. It appears the position is based in New York. Most likely in the offices of RedBird Capital.
