Language & Culture Specialists (Temporary, Full-time)

About Us

Our goal? To protect online communities from high-risk chat, comments, and images. Why? Because we believe in fostering an online world free of harassment, hate speech, and child exploitation. For the last six years, we’ve built systems that detect and remove dangerous and abusive content for online games, social networks, messaging apps, and more, all in real time. We created Community Sift, a powerful risk-based content filter and moderation tool that empowers the biggest brands in online entertainment to protect their communities, their reputation and their bottom line. Using the latest technology and advances in artificial intelligence, we help our client’s online communities reach their full potential — and become spaces where everyone can share without fear of harassment or abuse.
