Contributor Spotlight: Steven

At Appen, our Crowd is global, and we love hearing from our Contributors how we became part of their daily lives. We spoke to Steven, from the United States, about how he joined Appen to give his life more flexibility.

Please tell us about yourself.

I live with my family in North Carolina. We enjoy exploring the nearby lake, rivers, waterfalls and hiking trails.

Why did you choose Appen?

I chose to be a Contributor for Appen because of the flexibility it offers. I worked for a large corporation and had a health issue which made it impossible to continue in that line of work. During my recovery, I found Appen and it is a lifesaver because it allows me to contribute as an auditor and a rater on many interesting projects while also juggling family life.

When do you do your work?

Steven and his family enjoying nature

I usually start in the very early hours of the morning. Depending on how many projects I’m working, I might continue throughout the day.

What is your favorite part about being a Contributor?

The best part is being able to work on a wide variety of topics over multiple projects. I also like helping explain things to fellow Contributors as an auditor.

What has Appen enabled you to do that you couldn’t before?

Working for Appen has allowed to me to spend more time with family and to work around our ever-changing schedule. It also helped me recover and get healthy again, which I couldn’t have the way I was workin before. It has been a lifesaver for me.

Thanks for chatting with us, Steven!
