WANTED: Content Moderators for oDesk

Job Description

oDesk, one of the leading global service marketplace for small and medium sized business to hire, manage, and pay remote freelancers or teams, is building a team of content moderators to review and assess web-based content. You will have the opportunity to work directly for oDesk, and strong performance in this role could lead to increased responsibility and opportunity, both within the Content Review team and other oDesk teams.

This will be a long-term opportunity with consistent hours.

Required Qualifications

Good command over English language demonstrated by high scores in oDesk tests.

Desired Qualifications
  • A Bachelor’s degree in any discipline but completed in English language.
  • Familiarity with various flavors of written and spoken English (US/UK) across the world.
  • Knowledge of one or more foreign languages preferably from your current resident country.
Additional Requirements
  • Must be willing to undergo a background check.
  • Furnish a Government issued ID matching your oDesk profile.
  • Must have webcam enabled computer with reliable internet connection.

The compensation will consist of two parts: an hourly rate and a payment for tasks completed. The targeted total hourly equivalent is US$ 4.00 an hour. The base hourly rate will be US$ 2.00 per hour. The task-based payments should approximate US$ 2.00 per hour, with the opportunity to make significantly more if you are efficient.

Save the Philippine Eagle!


The Philippine Eagle Foundaiton's long-time partner, Caltex, will be running a fundraising campaign for the Philippine Eagle Foundation (& other charities) at selected Caltex stations in Manila from December 13-24, 2010. For every P500 peso fill up, Caltex will donate P20 to a charity of the motorist's choice. One of the 5 choices is the Philippine Eagle Foundation.

Now, the foundation needs volunteers to charm the motorists and convince them to give to PEF. Will you be our princes and princesses charming? :)

At least 2 volunteers per station are needed, for a minimum of 4 hours a day, from December 13-24. Caltex will provide a cash allowance per volunteer per day.

KAAKBAY is supporting this endeavor. We are encouraging KAAKBAY members and supporters to volunteer!

Sign up is required, especially to avail of the allowance. Please send message to Ms. Tatit Quiblat at tatit@philippineeagle.org or 09177122895 to sign up and for your preferred date and time (you set the time, as long as it is between 8am to 9pm). You can volunteer as many times for as many days in as many stations as you want. Please see the list of stations below. You will be provided with a guide document (what to say, what to do, etc.) once you sign up.

For those unable to volunteer, you can help by convincing all your friends and family to gas up at the selected stations during the promo period and choose PEF.

Let's get Caltex to make a difference by helping the Philippine Eagle!
Thank you!
