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