Data Migration Specialist & PHP/JavaScript Developer


ContractProgrammingAmericas Only
We are a cloud based database company serving non-profits, mostly Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault support providers.  We are looking for a person to help with two tasks:



Data Migration

Many of our customers are switching to us from some other system.  We get data in every shape, size, format, level of complexity, and level of cleanliness that you can imagine.

We have built a special data import tool to help facilitate the data migration process.  So there's minimal writing code to teach the system that "Female" should be code 1, "Male" should be code 2.  Etc...  The tool that we've built makes that process incredibly easy.  Although knowledge of PHP, JavaScript, and MySQL are needed to understand how that tool is working and help fill in any gaps.

What's NOT incredibly easy is being able to look at the source files coming in, understanding what that data is actually describing... looking at the way our database is structured, understanding what our database is describing... and figuring out how to get the various pieces from the previous system to ours.  It takes a lot of creativity, problem solving, and training to work out how to properly import all data with the least chance of data being lost or duplicated.

We are already fully versed in how this process works and are simply looking for additional support.  We are looking for people who are open to learning our tool and adapting to our ways of accomplishing this incredibly important task for our customers.

Strong communication skills and English ability is a must.



PHP/JavaScript Developer

The Data Migration piece is our top priority, but there isn't quite enough of this work to sustain a part-time position.  Thus we would also be looking to hire someone who could also help out with our general product development and debugging.

We use PHP (no framework), JavaScript, jQuery, NodeJS, CSS, and HTML.  That's basically it.  We try to keep it simple.  There are a variety of development areas we could use someone's assistance, so we would be looking to take advantage of whatever skills and experience you have.



Job Structure

You would be an independent contractor.

We are looking to fill between 20 and 25 hours a week.

You would work full days Monday, Wednesday, Friday  OR partial days all week.  Schedule is flexible if you have other commitments that come up from time-to-time.

We strongly prefer working with people in North and South America.
