Description

Experience Level: Entry
Estimated project duration: less than 1 week
I have an Excel file list of 2100 companies broken into two sections/tabs (attached).

The first tab is simply a list of URLs - this will be the simpler process - you will go to the URL, browse a few pages quickly and determine if the company is a data vendor or provider.

The second part is a list of Company names and their corresponding profile URLs on the website craft.co, which is similar to Crunchbase or Owler. In this case, you will first navigate to the Craft.co profile page for the company, click the website link to the company's home page and then just like with the other list - browse a few pages quickly and determine if the company is a data vendor or provider. For this list, I will ask that along with saving whether the company is a data vendor/provider, you also save the company URL in the output file for me.

I know that a good portion of these companies won't match what I'm looking for so I'm hoping to find an efficient and data industry-savvy freelancer to visit each site and quickly screen them for me based on easy-to-identify indicators.

I will then be personally visiting all of the URLs marked "yes" to measure the accuracy of the determination. If there is a 90% or higher accuracy according to my criteria, there will be further similar work for the freelancer with more lists like this. If the accuracy remains high, I will offer higher-paying jobs with more in-depth screening in the future. I anticipate that 10-20% of the 2100 companies on this list will match my criteria.

The determination that I'm looking for is whether or not the company being screened is a data vendor or provider - that is, if they sell their data in some form - whether that be as a feed, as part of an analytics platform, as part of a monitoring dashboard or in some other format. This won't always be obvious based on the first glance from the home page since companies can be a bit discreet about what their actual product or service offering is. Usually it can be determined within 2-5 clicks through the company's product/service, solutions, technology and about pages.

Some examples of types of companies that would be considered data vendors:
- Social media monitoring platforms
- Social media or news sentiment engines
- Satellite/geo-spatial monitoring platforms
- Credit Card or eCommerce transaction reporting/analytics
- Organization data repositories (company financing, bankruptcy, regulatory filings)
- IP tracking platforms (patents, trademarks, pharmaceutical trials)
- Geo-location tracking (GPS, WiFi, Cellular, SDK/App usage)
- eCommerce product/price tracking
- Commodity reporting (oil, gas, crops, minerals)

Further examples of the type of companies that I'm looking for can be found on the database listed at http://www.alternativedata.org
