When Apple came out with their new Maps app for the iPhone, a lot of people said that it was a terrible app. The app is actually pretty good–the problem is with the data behind the app. When One Day One Job was just a collection of my daily posts, it was pretty useful. But when I added in Indeed.com data to bring up to date job listings to every post, our archives and job search engine instantly became far more helpful. Good data (or content) is the key to good apps and websites. That’s where Factual comes in. They’re a Los Angeles, CA based company that “provides access to definitive global data for powering web and mobile apps, mobile advertising, and enterprise solutions.”
Factual believes that the “world would be a better place if more good data was made available, unencumbered and affordable.” I agree. A lot of apps and websites need the same data, but there’s no reason for each new startup to build their own dataset of every company in the world’s location or every product’s physical dimensions. Factual provides that kind of data through an API that allows their clients to focus on what they do best–making the data useful. That’s why companies like Yelp, Foursquare, LivingSocial, and Trulia are all getting data from Factual. If you want to get a feel for how some companies are using Factual data, just look at the company’s App Gallery. If you like what you see, take some time to look at Factual’s Jobs page. They have some jobs worth investigating including:
And if you don’t see a job that fits you, you can apply for an unlisted position at Factual.
