Job summary

Gather and organize documents for a new startup: disclosures.org

Job description

Salary: $400,000 Hungarian Forint / month

Position Type: Full time

Length of job: 3 months, with the potential for full-time work

Join a brand new San Francisco based venture, disclosures.org.

We are taking all of the public disclosures from governments around the world and putting them online. We need your help to gather the documents, understand them, organize them, and write about them.

Disclosures.org is just a spec of the site to come — we just put it online this week, and it’s mostly a rough draft. Eventually we expect to offer millions of documents on here.

I am the founder of several successful VC backed Silicon Valley / San Francisco startups, mostly built on public data, on which I still work full time. (Here is my linked-in: https://www.linkedin.com/in/davidcpetersen/)

We’ll get the data by filing Freedom of Information Act requests with cities, counties, states, and the United States federal government. The real challenge of this position is organizational: You’ll have to keep track of all of the governments, find their emails, send them correspondence, keep track of the responses, and then organize the information they send us and add it to disclosures.org

Position Duties:

  • Review FOIA requests and provide deep analysis of information
  • Structure and execute sophisticated search strategies
  • Parse PDFs for interesting facts and summarize them in a few sentences
  • Write broad analysis of political data

Qualifications:

  • Experience with gathering, analyzing, and filtering information.
  • Excellent proofreading and analytical skills
  • Possess strong written and oral communication skills
  • Independent, able to self-manage and work with minimal supervision

Please email a resume plus short description about yourself / why you are interested in this position to david@disclosures.org

  • Writing in grammatically perfect English
  • Research
  • Creativity
  • Work ethic
