    OK, no 20 dollar job here. This is a credible paying job. Will discuss fair compensation with the right candidate.

    We are looking to scrape Google maps. Yes, we know.

    We need all categories in the US and Canada. We will cut the job into 3. There will be an upfront 2 city test to verify the veracity of your data. This has to be new. Not an old or 2nd gen list (unless you already have one completed in the last 6 months). This is a complex and difficult task. If we have to talk about Proxies, and the complexities of this, you probably are not the candidate for this. And no, we do not want Yellow Pages, Yelp, Foursquare etc. We want Google Maps and Places. Will need to know deep scanning and DB verification techniques as well.

    Please if this is your cup of tea reach out and let's talk. I will reiterate this is a gigantic scraping job so please only reach out if you have the experience specific to the monster that is Google. And on a very large scale. Thank you.

    Wundr.kid, please reach out via PM first. Maybe a little on your experience, time frame, expected number of results (we already know the number), cost estimate, and methods you plan to use. If it looks good we will reach out. Thanks for the interest!! :)

    FJtech, (and others), please just to make this an easier task to narrow the right candidate see the above msg. ^ Just message with that info and then after a day or so we will reach out to top answers directly. At least then we know that you have a base level of competency before we spend 20 mins with each person interested. Sorry I know it sucks doing it that way but us having a convo with a lot of candidates will take a ton of time. Thanks. BTW I will check in every few hrs today and tmr and try to answer or respond to any questions or PM's. Thanks again guys. Look fwd to chatting further with the right candidates!
