My company is in the field of tabulation / data processing and other market research related business. We have the need to find qualified freelancers who can create tabulations using Quantum. Using Quantum is a strict requirement as Quantum is the system we use in-house.
This work would be on a per-project basis. We intend to have projects on a routine basis, possibly on a full-time basis.
1 - Be proficient in Quantum:
We need freelancers who can be provided a tab plan and data and get started on their own. We do certainly want you to ask any valid questions when they arise and will support you, and we understand that certain projects may be beyond your skill level; however, we do require freelancers that can work on their own and communicate issues efficiently.
2 - Be dedicated to meeting schedules:
We will always provide as much notice and time as possible and we will never expect unrealistic turnaround, but once a project begins and the work starts, we need to rely freelancers who take adherence to schedules very seriously.
3 - Be looking for a long term working relationship:
We would like to develop a mutually beneficial relationship where we can further your career and financial well-being, while also providing exceptional service to our clients. There will be an upfront investment in time and money on my end, and we are not looking to outsource just a specific project - we want to find quality team players.
4 - Be open to expanding the tools and methods you use for creating Quantum specs:
My company has proprietary in-house tools that help us to create extremely consistent Quantum specs very efficiently. We may share these tools with you once we have a strong relationship. We have other areas that we can use quality freelancers for, if you have the willingness to expand your knowledge base.
If you are interested in this opportunity, if we choose to move forward with you I will provide you with a paid trial project. After successfully completing that project, we will move onto real client projects.
If the above interests you and you would like to move forward, please answer the following questions and provide any other information you would like to. I understand your time is valuable and limited, so feel free to provide short, informal answers - I am looking for your knowledge and understanding, not to judge your writing skills or English skills.
1 - Please describe your access to Quantum (such as is it shared with other users, do you have your own installation on a machine you own and control, etc.) and whether it is Windows or Unix / Linux.
2 - Please describe your data security, such as how you would keep any data or materials provided to you secure, your backup procedures, etc.
3 - Please briefly describe the tools you use when programming for Quantum, in terms of what software you may use to help with creating your Quantum specs, etc.
4 - If you have any references, example tables, work history, etc. that you would like to provide please do so.
I look forward to hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.
