Freelance part-time job opportunity for speakers of GUJARATI
We are looking for native speakers of Gujarati to help us localise our product.
what3words is a global addressing company that has given every 3m x 3m square on the planet an address of 3 random words – for example, our London office is located at ///filled.count.soap. 3 word addresses are more accurate than street addresses or postcodes, but much easier to remember and communicate than 16 digit lat-long coordinates. Please read more here: www.what3words.com/about, and do follow the links to have a look at our map too. You may also be interested in this example of a current project using our technology in South Africa: https://vimeo.com/207430031.
We are currently working to launch a Gujarati version of our map, so that every 3m x 3m of the globe will have its own unique 3 word address in your language. The job focuses on two main areas:
1) making sure that the best, most common Gujarati words are used, and
2) making sure that there are no unsuitable words in the 3 word addresses.
Work: Freelance from home (computer and internet access needed). Compensation: Fixed amount of £45 for training, then £15 an hour after that. Duration: Successful candidates will be accepted for 3 hours of online project training (fully paid). If successful with the training, then they will be offered further work for up to 3 months, which will be on a part-time basis around 5–10 hours per week.
You must be able *read and write in Gujarati* and communicate confidently in English. The work that you will be doing requires great attention to detail. It is also helpful if you are passionate about language and/or technology.
If you are interested in working with us, please apply online at https://what3words.workable.com/jobs/934088. You will be asked to upload a copy of your CV.
In your cover letter, we want to see that you understand what3words and are enthusiastic about what we do. We expect you to explore the map thoroughly (https://map.what3words.com/) and you will be required to provide an English 3 word address for the Taj Mahal in Agra.
The deadline for applying to the role is Sunday 17 March 2019.
We look forward to hearing from you!
