If you’re anything like the average internet user, you’re already logging in 10 hours or more online each week.

Put your screen time to good use and earn money with Lionbridge, a company that provides business services to organizations all over the world.

Lionbridge Is Looking for Part-Time Map Analysts

We’ve written about various Lionbridge opportunities in the past (“like” The Penny Hoarder Jobs page on Facebook to stay in the loop!), but this time the company is hiring contractors who’ll work as online map quality analysts.

This role involves completing tasks related to online maps and routing. You’ll also be investigating the geographical accuracy of queries and ranking or rating related information.

The job description is a bit vague, and the company you’ll be contracted to work for wasn’t named, but the online evaluation applicants must complete to get this gig may give you a better idea of what this work entails.

It’s important to note: This job is a temporary one and only requires up to 20 hours a week on a flexible schedule.

I reached out to Lionbridge for information regarding pay and will update this post once I get additional information.

Here’s How to Land This Job

According to the job description, online map quality evaluators will need to have:

  • Good research skills
  • Understanding of local and national geography
  • Knowledge of how to use online maps, including route planning and identifying points of interest
  • High-speed broadband internet access

Job applicants also need to be fluent in English and have lived in the United States for at least the past two years.
