Lionbridge continues to recruit p/t Online Map Evaluators.
If you have a working knowledge of local and national geography, this might be a fit. “The tasks will involve determining the relevance and accuracy of information by performing online research and referring to guidelines provided to you,” the company says.
Pay can reportedly range from $10 to $50+/hr., depending on tasks. For example, a Reddit member posted, “I can average $10-20 an hour depending on the tasks I get. If I get a lot of address results where I have to verify if an address exists, those take a lot more time to research, which brings me closer to $10. If not, I hover between $15-20. If I’m getting pedestrian and routing tasks, I’ve got those tasks down to a science. I can break $50 an hour doing those, more if I get a lot of tasks that are short routes…” Your mileage may vary, of course.
Here’s what Lionbridge has to say about the role:
The position will allow you to work from home on a flexible schedule of up to 20 hours per week completing tasks in a web-based evaluation tool.
