  • Create relevant documents and procedures to help identify risk within the Safety Operations team. Make recommendations for process improvement.
  • Mentor new team members/peers and train them on relevant policies and tools
  • Cross-training across other Safety Operations work. This may include: suspension appeals; content review; event moderation; deep-dive investigations and quality assurance work

You Have:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English and German
  • Relevant professional experience, preferably as a moderator or content reviewer in online communities or social media

  • Evaluate information and quickly/independently develop a sound conclusion based on an existing framework 
  • Mentally and emotionally able to handle offensive or disturbing behaviour, language, and content
  • Comfortable working remotely and independently as part of a larger team
