Work from Home Jobs – Assist Blind and Low-Vision People Remotely, Part-Time – $15/Hr. — No State Hiring Restrictions – College Not Required – Training Provided

This is one of our favorite jobs, in the service it provides, and the company has reopened hiring. They also wrote us that there are no state hiring restrictions.

In a few words, Aira has developed technology that allows you to assist people who are blind or have low vision. Through this technology, they push a button and you see what’s in front of them.

As an Aira Agent you then assist them with the issue they’ve encountered — shopping, reading email, navigating walking routes, or other challenges.

Here’s what the company has to say about the job:

Do you have a passion for working with people, a knack for technology and an eye for detail?

We’d love to hear from you!

We’re people who love what we do – Our best days are when we’ve made someone else’s day better; that happens every day. We have a positive impact on the world around us.

Well trained and ready to assist – We’re selected from thousands of applicants and undergo a rigorous training program of self-directed online study and live sessions with experienced agents and Explorer Trainers.

More than a job. A mission. – We believe that access to visual information is a right, rather than a privilege. Our entire company shares a single mission: to make visual information instantly accessible to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

More about Aira

Aira was purpose-built for someone who desires visual information about their surroundings. Our community consists largely of individual people whom we call “Explorers”, who are blind or have low vision and benefit from live, on-demand visual information about their surroundings.

And world-class organizations – businesses, retailers, restaurants, grocers, banks, airports, transit systems, museums, universities and corporate employers – are providing Aira at no cost as a productivity tool for their employees, students, customers, visitors and travelers.

Anywhere a person who is blind or has low vision needs access to visual information or needs to navigate is where Aira fits.
