We’re working with a large a company that helps commercial property owners in major cities manage permitting and work approval. They have a database they’re maintaining that requires manually uploading and spot checking CSVs. They’re looking for someone who can come in and wrap their heads around the existing data set, help them manage this process of uploading documents, and produce reports on their data set. They’re currently migrating from kintone to salesforce and using a lot of salesforce uploader. They need someone through August at a minimum and potentially longer.

Would be great if you’re also comfortable doing interfacing with external stakeholders via email though that’s not a requirement here.

You’d be taking over the workstream of a previous contractor we had on the project who unexpectedly won visa sponsorship in canada and had to leave to pursue that opportunity. That person will continue to be available for 5 hours / week.
