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. Candidates should: 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.

I need a open source python app, preferably DJANGO framework with a MongoDB data repository for historical storage to replace a tool I've been using for a very long time, but will no longer serve my purpose. The tools is the CATZ program. http://cyclesresearchinstitute.org/cats/ This tool creates a spectral analysis output file for data that is imported into it. I want a simpler application that only executes spectral analyses for two types of data: day and minute. The source data sets will be market data at either a day granularity or minute (intraday) granularity. The deliverables of this project will be tested against my CATZ program outputs to ensure the application is creating the exact same results. Here is a set of definitions from an analytical perspective to which this app must perform (note for this app, Frequency should be defaulted to 1 always): Spectral Analysis determines the amplitude of cycles present at regular frequency intervals from a single time series. If the interval is 1 then the result is similar to a Fourier Analysis. If the frequency is more than 1 then it has finer measurements than Fourier Analysis. (Note for this app, frequency will be defaulted to 1) This output has six columns of data. Firstly the number of cycles fitting into the full period being analysed. It goes up in steps of the value of the inverse of the & Frequency parameter (which might be set by default of 1) and usually. Column 2, the cycle period in units of the step of the selected folder. The next three columns are the sine, cosine and combined amplitudes found for that cycle period. The last column contains the Bartels test value which is the chance that such a cycle arose by chance. In general if this is less than 0.05 the cycleis probably real, and if it is less than 0.001 then it is very likely so. For moreinformation on Bartel's test seehttp://www.cyclesresearchinstitute.org/dewey/case_for_cycles.pdf Here is the workflow the application must support: 1. select CSV (file will dictate whether min or day is in play - note all data is trading data; therefore, min = 0930-1600 then gap to next day + non-weekends & non-holiday. Day is non-weekend, non-holiday) 2. Take logs of each value to the base 10. Values must initially be positive 3. Execute spectral analysis as defined above 4. Create .csv flat file saved to desktop having the six columns described in speclog.csv, and also store to historical data repository for future reference Data Storage: The application should store all previous studies, and make them available for recall via a simple webpage with hyperlinks to open and download to CSV. Naming convention for storing historical cycles: TickerSymbol_DateOfStudy_TimeOfStudy_Type(i.e. Day or Min). Mock up UIs will be provided once a resource has been selected. The final deliverable of the project is to load the application, all code, & database onto my private AWS environment and facilitate my testing of the app to satisfaction. Handover requirements: ALL code must be documented with psuedo code for each stance of code using English language. A data model diagram must be provided that matches the data repository. All data elements of that model must have a definition and laymen name associated in a separate dictionary document. The model & dictionary can be basic (i.e. excel, powerpoint, word -- not visio). ALL SERIOUS Resources must type Mickey Mouse in the subject line of response in order to be considered - those that don't will be automatically tossed out.

This project is for a web site designed for personal and professional development. Users will be able to take a variety of self-assessment surveys to help them become more self-aware, and to discover and better understand their strengths, weaknesses, predispositions and opportunities. I am looking to collaborate with one or more Psychometricians to design and help monitor these instruments via the web.

I need to create a Form 5500 database where I can have a script to import files like the one attached and load them into a database. Form 5500 files are able to be pulled by querying this site https://www.efast.dol.gov/portal/app/disseminate?execution=e2s1 It would be good to have multiple years form 5500 files imported into the database. The database initially will be a .xlsx file. Please provide a summary of your approach with your response. Looking forward to your proposal.

When Starbucks hit the scene in 1987, recently purchased by Howard Schultz from the original 3 owners the model disrupted a market cluttered with gas town 'frappacino's' and coffee that could be better described as 'blue collar' coffee (Folgers, etc.) Starbucks spun an already established European model of coffee, whipped up in its ancient traditions progressed through not a desire to make things better, or evolve in the way we know it 2016, but in a way to make something taste better. I'm looking for some qual and quan data and research that paints an overarching story of how Starbucks disrupted an industry, where it is now, and what innovations or disruptions are being made by smaller coffee shops. THE RESEARCH SHOULD ANSWER: How Starbucks revolutions hot coffee and lattes (vanilla, 3 sweet and low lattes) and now where new regional (hipster) coffee shops take the wheel and build on a concept? HOW IS THE STARBUCKS MODEL WANING – ARE THERE ANY REAL COMPETITORS? A COMPREHENSIVE GEOGRAPHIC BREAKDOWN OF STARBUCKS LOCATIONS COMAPARED TO COMPETITING COFFEE SHOPS AND ALL OF THE INFORMATION THAT GOES WITH IT: GEOGRAPHIC BREAKDOWN FOR RACE, HOUSEHOLD MEDIAN INCOME – ETC AND WHAT THE SMALLER COFFEE SHOPS DO TO BUILD CULTURE. Beverage selections: To Fraapaccino or to Not Frappacino? How the regular mold of coffee to wake up went to a treat? What's the break down of this data? When did it first start?HOW MUCH PROFIT WAS MADE FROM COFFEE TO FRAPPACINOS AT STARTBUCKS THROUGH THE YEARS? WHAT'S THE AVERAGE PRICE A CUSTOMER SPENDS AT STARBUCKS COMPARED TO A SMALLER (HIPSTER) COFFEE SHOP? HOW HAS STARBUCKS PURCHASE OF LA BOULANGERIE INCREASED ITS MARKET VALUE? WHAT PERCENTAGE OF STARBUCKS SALES ARE ATTRIBUTED TO PASTRY (BREAKFAST) ITEMS. WHAT ITEMS ARE SAVORY? WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? WHO MAKES IT? WHAT FACTORY? HOW OFTEN IS IS SHIPPED? IS IT REALLY FRESH? WHAT IS THE CALORIE COUNT? IS IT FROZEN? WHAT CURRENT COFFEE SHOPS IN 3 MAJOR CITIES IN NYC, LA, SAN FRAN, DOING COMPARED TO CINCY, INDY, AND NASHVILLE? WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO COMPETE? WHAT PRODUCTS ARE THEY SERVING, ETC? HOW HAVE THEY GROWN AND DO THEY HAVE A CULT FOLLOWING? FIND OUT WHAT PROGRESS WAS MADED FROM THE FIRST ESPRESSO MACHINE/THE BEGINNINGS OF THE TRATTORIA OR COFFEE SHOP (FRANCE, BELGIUM, ITALY, GREECE, NEW-AGE ISRAEL) COMPARED TO WHAT THE AMERICAN COMPANIES (LARGE AND SMALL) ARE DOING TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH THEIR AUDIENCE. HOW MUCH MONEY IS MADE FROM THE COFFEE BUSINESS IN AMERICA?
