About the Role: 

We are looking for a talented individual to work on the team that keeps content flowing at RealSelf. As a Content Moderator, you will be responsible for ensuring that user-generated content (including reviews of medical procedures and doctors, questions, and discussion forums) is moderated and published in real time, allowing RealSelf community members to make smarter, informed decisions about their healthcare choices.

In this role you will:

  • Moderate user-submitted content for adherence to RealSelf guidelines
  • Contact customers and help them clarify or revise incomplete or inappropriate content
  • Maintain empathy for the customer experience, providing guidance to ensure they have an easy, personal and trusted experience on RealSelf
  • Meet and exceed personal and team metrics for processing times, quality, volume, and more
  • Categorize and tag content so users can easily find what they need
  • Safeguard the community from spam/scams and content that violates RealSelf guidelines
  • Find and advocate for efficiencies and product improvements that make RealSelf easy, personal and trusted for consumers
  • Troubleshoot and report bugs
  • Support customers through chat and email support channels
  • Summarize and escalate complex issues to the management team
  • Stay up-to-date with modern beauty, treatments, conditions and healthcare trends

Other duties, responsibilities and activities may change or be assigned at any time with or without notice.

About You: 

This role requires an individual with a unique passion for working quickly and efficiently through a volume of work. You are intrinsically motivated by quality and quantity in your work, without sacrificing empathy for every customer you contact. If the best part of your day is putting your headphones on and tackling a to-do list, this is the role for you.

Customers on our site are taking a highly personal journey to improve how they look and feel. You’re the person at RealSelf who will help them share their experiences and find their voice in the community.

The ideal candidate will have prior experience in a detail-oriented environment focused on efficiency, like data entry, inventory or other data processing environments. A demonstrated ability working with customers and/or data in sensitive areas like healthcare or finance is a plus. The successful candidate will also be able to work collaboratively within the operations team and across the company.

You may be the right fit if you have: 

  • The ability to focus on a repetitive task for several hours without sacrificing quality or speed
  • Fantastic time management skills and a drive to “get things done”
  • Fast and efficient reading and comprehension skills
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Excellent typing ability and data entry skills
  • The ability to retain information and pivot quickly when processes change
  • Diplomacy skills that you use to convey difficult information to others
  • Discretion around sensitive content on the site (e.g. nudity, medical conditions)
  • Strong prioritization skills

Work Environment:

This fully remote role is open to candidates in most states. Working remotely from a primary residence outside the United States is currently not permitted.

We believe in inclusiveness, equal pay, and giving back. With COVID-19 we have become a more remote and distributed workforce that understands the value of internal connections and collaboration across all teams.

An Insider's view of RealSelf

What are some social events your company does?

Despite being a #remotefirst company, RealSelf continues to put people first with frequent and unique virtual events like family-friendly zoom visits to the zoo, Pride-themed trivia, guided cocktail/mocktail mixing, and company speed connecting (similar to speed dating, minus the dating).

Vijitra "Vivi"

Recruitment Coordinator & People Team Admin

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

We're increasing trust on our platform in a time where people are less trustful of what they read online. Our goal is to give everyone the information they need to make strong, confident decisions about their medical care.


Community Operations Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Curiosity and drive to make a real business impact. On Analytics, we spend time building automated data products to scale ourselves. This creates time for investigating large-scale optimizations throughout the business. Curiosity and business acumen are key components to finding actionable and relevant insights to implement.


Director of Analytics

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our People Team strives to support the understanding that work-life balance should no longer be considered a benefit but should be an expectation of a company. Not only do we stand behind this, we have transitioned to a remote-first culture creating more opportunities for our people to have a better way of life.


VP of People

How does your team reward individual success?

During our sprint retros, we discuss which RealSelf Business Operability Principles the team demonstrated well & we can mention the member/s who were instrumental in that success. This is so rewarding because it provides us a platform to recognize the efforts of our fellow teammates, value their contributions, & in turn, keeps everyone motivated.
