Job Title: Russian Language Annotator

Job Rank: Annotator; Researcher

Specialty Areas: Translation

Required Language(s): Russian (rus)


HERE Russian Language Annotator

Summary of the Position:
Annotation is how we at HERE measure the success of our HERE mapping software. As an annotator, you will complete a variety of Annotation task-types. Collectively, your ratings will allow the HERE Team to make informed changes to the HERE mapping software and quantify our mapping database’s quality. Without annotation, we cannot measure the quality impact of HERE maps software development.

As a HERE Russian Language Annotator, you will mainly work on Middle East-based mapping data. You will need reading and writing literacy in the Russian language. You will also need to perform detailed on-line research, utilizing official websites, review sites, web searches, mapping street view, etc as part of this annotation position. You must be able to clearly explain your thought process behind your annotation rating choices and provide quality research in support of that.

To apply for this position, please submit your resume or CV to Albert Lin at the application email provided below.

Work Environment:
All annotation work is done remotely through an online website with an English user interface. All Annotators will follow task-specific annotation guidelines and you will receive annotation training when you start the position. Your normal work will be reviewed by higher-level annotators known as mergers, who will offer you direct feedback on your annotation work. There will be in-depth personal assessments every quarter. Every month we’ll have team-wide webinar meetings with specific media channels and e-mail groups to discuss annotation with your peers. However, your day-to-day work is largely done independently. This position requires 20 hours each week with flexible work hours that you personally determine.

After high-performance assessments, you may be trained as a merger who performs higher level work. This includes reviewing other annotator’s work, providing final ratings, and providing feedback to other annotators as necessary. High performance on your assessments comes with yearly raises and the potential to reach higher-level annotation positions. Other benefits include paid-time off and family and health leave for all annotator levels.

Position Requirements:
We require a high school diploma at a minimum. Higher education is desirable. Reading and writing literacy in Russian is required. Language proficiency in more than one language, particularly Japanese, Arabic, and/or Chinese, is very desirable, but is not a requirement.

You must have proficiency with a variety of web resources and computer usage. You must have access to a computer, internet, and be able to work 20 hours a week. This position is only available to those who can legally work in the United States of America.

The above statements are intended to describe the general nature and level of work being performed by people assigned to this classification. They are not intended to be construed as an exhaustive list of all responsibilities, duties, and skills required of HERE Annotation employees.
