Description

Do you like doing online research? Are you the best at finding info online on any topic?
DESCRIPTION
Wonder (wonderlib.com) is a fast-moving tech company committed to re-humanizing online search. We want to put curious learners in league with bright minds who can quickly find the highest quality resources scattered across the web in order to facilitate a more guided learning experience.

To that end, we're looking for intrepid children-of-the-Internet researchers to connect users with the best information on the topics they're looking to learn about. The best researchers are those who love to consume Internet media already, those who, when they have a question, can quickly ferret out the answer online within a couple of minutes.

For each search you claim, you'll be tasked with finding 5+ links to high-quality sources -- from big picture New Yorker longreads for general subject searches to nitty-gritty answers for challenging, specific user questions.

Pay is $4/search. Most searches take about 15 minutes, so... you do the math. If you're efficient, you can make great pay.

* Work from home

QUALIFICATIONS

* Strong/grammatical writing a must
* Ability to create lean, high-level summaries
* A wide breadth of general knowledge (scoring well at Trivia Night bodes well) and insatiable curiosity
* Critical analysis and logical reasoning skills
* Bonus: those with a narrow, deep understanding of a STEM field/prior study in a technical subject are also encouraged to apply
