Most remote data jobs are either for data entry clerks or database administrators / engineers. A data entry clerk enters information into computer databases for effective record keeping. Speed, accuracy, and attention to detail are their most important qualities. A database administrator (DBA) is responsible for maintaining the performance, security, and integrity of a database. They are usually also involved in the development and planning of the database structure. Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server, and MS Access are some of the most popular database platforms. DBAs will need to also have a command of the SQL language.
