* I am a Technology Recruiter with a company called YohIT in Portland, Oregon. I have a position that is open with one of my clients. They are looking for someone with Native Brazilian or European Portuguese speaking skills to work with their customized software package to do manual testing for bugs. They are looking for someone that is computer savvy and knows how to use the Windows operating system.
This is a 5-6 week contract position. Pay is $15-20 and hour, full time in the Portland Metro area. Would like someone that is local to the area.
I am having some difficulty finding people with the specific Brazilian Portuguese skills. I also have a need for someone with European Portuguese skills. If you can direct me to anyone that may be a fit, I would be very grateful.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon! They are looking at a start date of June 8th.
