About datafix.io

Datafix.io is a new company that connects people and organizations that need data preparation and data cleaning tasks done to people who do data preparation and data cleaning. Some example cases of companies needing data entry tasks done are:
  1. A company comes to datafix.io with pdfs and non-machine readable excel spreadsheets containing company data, and submits a Dataset Request (uploading the pdfs and excel spreadsheets as Data Sources connected to the Dataset Request), complete with a detailed description on what the company needs done (in this case, they need a single (machine-readable) csv based off of the pdfs and spreadsheets). The company puts $300 into the reward pool.
  2. Company has unlabeled image and audio data and needs this data labeled for machine learning purposes. The company submits a Dataset Request to datafix.io, describing in detail how this data must be labeled. The company puts $1000 into the reward pool. A multiple data prep specialists want to complete this task
For each case, data prep specialists who wish to prepare/clean the data follow the detailed instructions provided by the company in their Dataset Request and submit Dataset Entries (one dataset entry per user per dataset request). Optionally, the company will hire a QA Analyst, or a QA Analyst who wishes to do QA for the Dataset Request will submit a QA Entry (one QA entry per user per dataset request). The company that submitted the Dataset Request decides which Dataset Entry (and optionally, which QA Entry) is best (with karma being a good heuristic for credibility), and once the company has paid for the full reward pool, Datafix adds 56% (or 90%, depending on whether or not there was an accepted QA Entry) of the reward pool to the accepted Data Prep Specialist's balance (optionally, 34% of the reward pool to the accepted QA Specialist's balance), and datafix.io keeps 10% (or 5% if the company had a referrer).

This is essentially how datafix.io functions.

We have a referral program in place. Users receive 5% of every reward for every Dataset Request submitted by anyone who has signed up using their referral link. Learn more at our FAQ.
