Job description:

Dear freelancers,

We are looking for additional Data Coders (categorising data) to add to our database, as we are expecting many assignment of this nature in 2018!

If you are not entirely familiar with what Data Coding is all about, please read the description below:


Data Coding is the assignment of numerical codes to questionnaire answers recorded in text form. It is typically used to analyse answers to open questions. In order for answers to be evaluated, they must be in a format compatible with relevant statistics programs. Purely textual answers such as 'very positive', 'generally positive', 'generally negative', 'don't know' and 'no answer' are replaced with symbols or numbers.
Where open questions are involved, coding/categorising has to be carried out manually.

You do not have to have past experience with data coding in order to apply for this role. Data Coding is something that is relatively quick and simple to learn.

If you are interested in applying for this opportunity please send a copy of your CV to [HIDDEN]

If you offer any alternative language services please feel free to mention this in your email to us as well.

Please let us know if you have any questions or queries.

We look forward to hearing back from you soon!

Kind regards,

Tomer Eini
