iFixit is growing and we’re looking for an enthusiastic, motivated individual to join our team as a Data Specialist.
Our team members are at the core of a global community dedicated to showing people how to fix the things they own. We believe that we can make the world better by empowering people to repair. iFixit is the world's foremost expert on Apple repair, and we've set the gold-standard for online repair documentation. Through iFixit.com, our team has helped hundreds of millions of people fix their own devices, and we plan to help millions more. In addition to teaching people how to repair, we also ship replacement parts and repair tools to customers all over the world.
As Data Specialist you’ll be responsible for collecting, updating, and maintaining various pieces of data related to the products iFixit sells. This will include things like part numbers, device/model numbers, prices and competitor information. Data accuracy is a must so you’ll be tasked with developing a good system for ensuring good data integrity with the various projects you’ll be working on. It will be a mix of ongoing, routine responsibilities and specific project-based work so good self-direction and prioritization is important. An example project would be compiling part compatibility information (part numbers and computer model numbers/names) by looking through service manuals and putting that into iFixit’s database.
It will be a fair amount of copy and paste type work as well as formatting outside data to match our format. Be prepared to put on your headphones, and copy and paste for hours at a time!

Entry-Level position, No experience is required. You must be very good with spreadsheets and figuring out how to efficiently work through collecting and organizing large amounts of data from a variety of different sources and formats.
