Community moderators are typically in charge of overseeing online communities. This could be on forums, Facebook, Twitter or any place where a group of people communicate together online.
In today's post, we've listed many legitimate companies with regular openings for community or social media moderation work from home.
Note that the requirements to apply will vary — some of these companies will require extensive experience while others will be more lax. Pay will vary as well.
However, according to Glassdoor, most social media moderators make around $27,000 per year.
Below is your list of several reputable companies that hire moderators. Please keep in mind that not all of these companies are hiring right now.
If you have interest in one of the companies below but do not see jobs in the moderation field posted, just check back periodically. The companies on this list are here because they either are hiring for moderation or have hired for moderation in the past.
Good luck! Your list of jobs is below.
