Data Entry Specialist

Shmoop - Phoenix, AZ (30+ days ago)


Shmoop (www.shmoop.com) is a digital curriculum company that makes learning, teaching, and test prep materials that are—dare we say it—awesome, thrilling, spectacular, magnificent, unforgettable, and smart. Really smart.

Who We’re Looking For

Someone who can send us an amazing cover letter and is a smart college grad with 2(ish) years’ experience. Deep knowledge for how to work Google Docs, Google Sheets, Facebook, and um... Gmail. Must be stone cold fluent in English. The job? QA, data entry, working in a fast-paced creative environment with deadly accuracy. An appreciation of 1970s classical rock music a plus.

If you have the fastest mousing skills in the West (or, uh, anywhere) and a love for the English language, look no further. To help carry out Shmoop’s mostly benign plans for world domination, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and detail-oriented individual.
