Editor’s Note: Lionbridge has confirmed they are experiencing some issues with the application for this job listing, and they are working to resolve those issues as soon as possible.

You use your computer and smartphone to watch Netflix, chat with friends on Facebook and check out the latest political news — or celebrity gossip.

Why not use those devices to make a little money?

Lionbridge, a company that provides business services to international organizations, is hiring for work-from-home data validators. This is a part-time opportunity, with the ability to work up to 24 hours a week.

You’ll need to use a desktop or laptop and a smartphone to perform the following tasks:

  • Analyzing and rating the quality and accuracy of different data sets
  • Answering general questions from provided text and articles
  • Transcribing audio

The company is looking for job applicants who:

  • Have a high school diploma or equivalent
  • Can speak, read and write proficiently in English
  • Know how to use Gmail’s email platform
  • Can pass a project-specific test

You’ll also need to have access to broadband internet connection, a smartphone and a computer with Google Chrome and Windows 7 or later.

The pay for this position was not included in the job listing, but I’ve contacted the company and will update this post once I learn more.

One great benefit about this job is that you can work flexible hours and set your own schedule.

That’s making money on your own terms.
