So what does all this mean for your day-to-day? In the Senior Content Analyst role, you will be working on a computer each day reviewing content such as videos, news stories, still pictures, and social media profiles. You will tag this content on areas such as age-appropriateness, level of violence, sexual content, and political transparency. This is a research oriented program, meaning that you won’t necessarily be trained on client related content but rather will help understand the Safety landscape and work with minimal guidelines. You need to have a prior experience in Safety and be able to understand context and interactions.

As a Senior content Analyst it is important for you to know the potential risks related to this type of work. While TaskUs is focused on employee wellness by having counselors on-site, resiliency programming, and other wellness initiatives, exposure to graphic and disturbing content is unavoidable. Some individuals with a sensitivity to viewing graphic or disturbing content may be at risk for developing distress, mental health symptoms, or, in rare instances, Secondary Traumatic Stress based on the content they are viewing.
TaskUs reserves the right to reassign Analysts to other TaskUs projects based on staffing needs, employee performance, and other considerations.
In order to help create a community that is safe for all employees, the Resiliency and Wellness Team takes an active role in the primary prevention of mental health concerns through direct practice efforts, e-learning, skills training, and outreach efforts to the TaskUs community. Our programs seek to raise awareness about psychological issues, challenge ideas that contribute to social inequity, disempowerment, and discrimination, as well as the underlying structures that support them. In addition, our programs empower employees to find and use their voices in a healthy and productive way.
