Webster Pacific is looking to hire a Data Entry Specialist who works in an expeditious and yet precise manner. The main areas of responsibility for this position include: entering and testing data in excel, researching information on Google, and maintaining Google My Maps. This position will run five to twenty hours a week for 1 month, with a possibility of extension based on performance. Ideally, the analyst will be available during most of the Pacific Time Zone business hours.
In our analytical endeavors we work closely with our clients to determine their exact data needs, both organizational and visual. Then, we research where data, public or private, is available to supplement our client's internal data. Finding this data, however, is only the beginning. After gathering required data sources, we use information architecture to design how the data will be presented and navigated for consumption by the client. Finally, we visualize answers using a combination of maps, tables, charts, graphs, and descriptive text, always being mindful of coloring, layout, words and other aesthetics, with all due deference to Tufte.
Our firm works at a fast pace with a variety of tools, but the process is careful and orderly. We are at the cutting edge of organizational and visualization methods and we spend significant time thinking through how to clearly present an answer as well as research it.
We currently use a variety of tools including: Tableau, ArcGIS, Excel, Relational Database Systems (SQL Server, FileMaker, etc.), as well as written prose to reflect our careful research and conclusions. Candidates should have strong excel skills, but be willing to quickly learn any and all of these tools.
Specifically, job duties will fall in a few areas:
• Create, format, and work with data in spreadsheets in Excel
• Create, modify, and publish maps in Google My Maps
• Build reports, analyze and present data in Excel
• Other work as capacity and aptitudes allow
