Our first attempt to use freelancer was a real learning experience. Now that we've made some mistakes we are providing a more precise description.
We are looking for someone to go into LinkedIn and mine data from 3 groups. The first 2 groups have around 2000 names each, the last group has around 20,000 entries. The data we are looking for is first name, last name, company, title, location, linkedin url. Additionally, if you can obtain email addresses we will pay a premium for this. The groups are open LinkedIn groups, but you may need an upgraded account in order to access this data. We are currently able to access this data as group members, but do not have the resources or time required in order to harvest all of the information. In every case, we are members of the groups and have executive accounts and can see this info. If you are awarded the contract, you would be responsible for accessing the groups from your own account. We will provide payouts upon completion of each group, with the smaller groups coming first. We will select bidders based upon bid price and prior experience / reputation on Freelancer. We will not be providing payment in advance of any milestone deliverables be ing met (eg initial work start milestone).
