You will also be interacting with customer inquires via email in potentially high-stress situations.

Working closely with the Engineering team, your role will be to further develop and optimize internal processes to help scale moderation operations and workflows. The company is growing exponentially and this will be a key role to support quality content growth. You will work with our product team and software engineers to organize the data, analyze it, and create a plan of action for product and feature improvements as well as supporting the marketing and sales team to leverage insights from your analyses.
