Types of Jobs
Whatever your interests are—social media, linguistics, research, data, or something else—Appen probably has a job for you. We have several broad categories of jobs for our contributors, depending on how much time you’re able to commit:
- Projects – These can be short- or long-term and can be a great source for more consistent work. You must pass a qualification process to be placed on a project.
- Micro Tasks – Simple tasks that you can start right away after your application is accepted.
- Surveys and Data Collection – Short projects that include taking surveys and providing data (such as voice recordings).
Within these categories, you can participate in a variety of valuable tasks such as:
- Data Annotation (for images, audio, video, and more)
- Search and Social Media Evaluation
- Translation and Transcription Services
- Linguistic Specialties
- Speech Evaluation
For example, you may qualify for a project that requires you to read tweets and decide what they’re about and what emotion they contain. Or, you could be asked to review videos and identify important objects in them. You can choose which jobs best suit your interests, skills, and time.
What We’re Looking For
Appen looks for individuals who are self-reliant, organized, and internet savvy. If you’re self-motivated and enjoy online research, our opportunities will likely be a great fit for you. We want candidates who have excellent research skills and analytical abilities, as well as advanced comprehension and written communication skills. If you fit these qualifications and have a range of interests in areas like research, data, or technology, we want to hear from you.
As far as general requirements, you must be at least 18 years old to apply. You must also have access to a computer with Google’s free Chrome web browser and high-speed internet access.
First, what we do: Appen collects and labels data to be used to build artificial intelligence systems for industry leaders all over the world. We have the industry’s most advanced AI-assisted data platform. Our work wouldn’t be possible without our crowd of over one million skilled contractors around the globe who speak more than 180 different languages.
If you’re interested in joining our crowd, we offer fair and competitive pay, as well as the ability to set your own hours and choose the tasks you’d like to work on.

We celebrate the valuable work our crowd does, which is why Appen stands for the ethical treatment of our contributors.

In it, we describe our pledge to fair pay, inclusion, communication, and privacy when it comes to contributor wellness. We stand by this pledge in our treatment of all of our contractors around the world.
Finally, as part of our company culture we center four key values: performance, or having the focus and ability to achieve quality outcomes; honesty, or taking accountability for your actions; humility, or not being afraid to ask for help; and grit, or not giving up and finding creative solutions.
