  • Personal Windows computer or laptop that runs Windows Vista or above
  • A high-speed Internet connection
  • Basic aptitude for installing applications, and troubleshooting and addressing software issues with limited support

The hourly pay rate is not stated in the job description...But when I worked for Appen, I earned $13.75 per hour. And Web Search Evaluators were paid once a month (the last day of the month) via direct deposit.

Please note if you are hired for this position, you must keep an active anti-virus software program on your computer! As a Web Search Evaluator, you will visit many different Web pages on a daily basis, which means you may come in contact with a computer virus. Also, it is a good idea to have at least two reliable computers at home while working on this project (just in case one breaks down or becomes infected with a virus).
