Greece Engineering

Workable makes software to help companies find and hire great people. We get recruiting and its role in building healthy workplaces — which is why we’re proud more than 20,000 teams around the world use Workable to do exactly that.

And while we take recruiting seriously, we don’t take ourselves too seriously. At Workable, you’ll find smart people who have fun, learn and innovate, and help others do the same. We brainstorm, we laugh, and, occasionally, we party (there’s a lot to celebrate), but we also appreciate people’s need for quiet time and focused work. We respect everyone, we hire the best, and make sure every experience is special.

We’re growing fast, in both headcount and revenue, and we’re looking for a remote, project-based Data Annotator to work with our data science team and perform annotation on large textual data sets.

It is an opportunity to join a world-class software company and a great team that passionately believes in what it does, and to work on challenging tasks that impact thousands of enterprise users.
