The Eviction Defense Collaborative is looking for a Data Migration expert to assist us in the preparation of EDC data to be migrated to a new database system. The Data Migration Expert will spend their time sorting over 10 years of data in Excel through cleaning, deduplication, and re organizing. It will require that the individual be able to understand and separate data from complex logic. It will require someone who has an eye for detail and can make assessments of the data based on detail review and familiarization of the data.

This is a contract position that ends on December 30, 2016. If the data migration is completed accurately and sooner than the performance deadline, a bonus incentive is provided. This job opportunity must be performed onsite at the EDC office.


The Eviction Defense Collaborative (EDC) provides legal assistance and advocacy to low-income and indigent tenants in San Francisco who are being evicted. We assist by educating tenants about the legal process, advising them of their options, drafting responsive legal documents, providing referrals to assist them in fighting their evictions, negotiating legal settlements, and representing clients at court hearings and at trial. The EDC also administers one-time rental assistance grants and loans through our RADCo Program to help tenants who are behind in their rent to pay the rent and stay in their homes. The work at the EDC is made possible by a small staff and many volunteers from local schools and the community. The work environment at the EDC is collegial, rather than having a rigid hierarchy of job positions, and we work as a team to assist the tenants who seek our help. Please see our website, for more information.
