Job Description

We are looking for an agency or an individual with experience in automated data extraction from all types of data files (PDF, excel, word, web scraping, csv, html, xml, text files, etc.). We have numerous data files and websites that we will need parsed and then placed into an excel spreadsheet.

The work is usually simple but it requires a person or company that can quickly and inexpensively create custom parsing scripts, run them against the data source, output in the format we need, and make sure that the resulting data was correct.

Speed of script creation and accuracy of data are of prime importance. So people monitoring the extraction will also be in charge of QC. We will pay per project and have a number of them available.

More details about the jobs and payment will be discussed while making a hiring decision. Please only apply if you have dealt with a large volume of automated jobs AND have a great testimonial on oDesk from the employers.
