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.

We need help summarizing results from surveys and reporting results. These surveys typically have 20-25 questions, and 100-200 responses. We’d like someone to work with the data in Excel, creating a workbook that generates simple tables and charts for results for each question. Wed like this done in a way that allows for charts/table to auto-update if we adjust the original data. In the past, we’ve done this by staging the data in one worksheet, then building separate sheets, one for each question, for the various questions. The results will be used by our designer to create charts and graphs, so they don’t require a high level of formatting. We will have one or two projects like this each month.

We're engineers and are really good at creating machines that turn waste into energy sources. What we're not good at however, is making a business plan to show investors and the like that we mean serious business and we're passionate about cleaning up the waste and recycling that waste into energy we can use. What we need is an expert in making business plans come to life where investors and other key stakeholders will understand what we're trying to accomplish and how we plan on doing it. I don't know what skills and experience this person must have in order to help us but I can imagine you'll need some form of experience dealing with start ups, VCs, creating and writing business plans, asking the right questions, understanding the market, etc. If you believe you can help us out, please fill us in on how you can add value to our company. I'll check out your profile for the other stuff (e.g. education, work history, etc).
