The HERE Chinese Annotator position performs detailed web research for geographical points-of-interest (POI), using resources like official websites, review sites, online search, etc for HERE Corporation. Annotation is a measure for how well our HERE mapping software is performing. If there are any HERE map changes being implemented, Annotation informs us if those changes are better or worse for the User. As an annotator, you will help to: 1) determine the possible intent of user-entered map searches, 2) determine the value of the POI being returned as a map listing, and (3) confirm information about POIs using web-based research. This position is for anyone who lives and can legally work in the US.
All work is done remotely through an online portal website. Annotator work is then reviewed by Annotation mergers. All Annotators follow task-specific annotation guidelines. Within that structure, workers must be creative and open-thinkers in terms of web-based resources needed to perform their work. All data is displayed through specific task templates through the online portal website.
An Annotator is an Individual contributor. Annotators work independently and remotely. Some workers, after high-performance assessments, are trained as “mergers”, doing higher level work than normal Annotators wherein they review previous Annotator work, provide final ratings, and provide feedback to Annotator as necessary. All Annotation work is done anonymously through username on the online portal website– no Annotator knows the personal information of other Annotators.
IMPACT DECISION MAKING
Workers make decisions based on the utility provided by the search responses, or the correctness of the attributes associated with a POI. Collectively, this data allows the HERE Team to make informed changes to the HERE map software and for database quality.
