Success Stories From Our Crowd

I have been working from home for about 4 years. Currently, in these difficult times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, having the opportunity to access extra income is very helpful. In addition to this, collaborating on the different types of tasks on the platform helps to invest time, and gives you something remunerable to do during quarantine. That’s one of the great benefits of working from home, and Appen is definitely an excellent platform to do it, with a wide variety of work to do.


I thought I’d be alone when it came to learning my job, but I found that the community is great! I use the chat feature all the time whether I’m asking questions or answering them, everybody answered my questions when I was new and I like to think I’m giving back now. (…)I love working from home, and I also get to learn a lot of new things that I would never have learned otherwise, even sometimes while wearing pajamas!”



I run an urban agriculture business, and I need as much flexibility as possible to run my farm and to market my product outside whenever I need to. Plus living in Tokyo, I hate riding a packed train to get to work. Working from home removes stress from my life, while staying time-efficient. (…)I love the fact that I can work anytime I want, and also knowing that I’m helping the online community have a smoother interaction and experience on the internet.



I was looking for some extra jobs to do when I have free time from my little jewelry shop. This work sounded so interesting that I decided to apply for it. Now that I have been working remotely for over a year and a half, I really love the flexibility and the ability to study at the same time and work when I can. And I love not having to travel two hours a day to get to work.



I was an undergraduate Engineering student back when I first came by Appen, formerly known as Figure Eight, but back then it was even called CrowdFlower. It fit my need for extra cash perfectly and the jobs were super interesting, not everyday I get to contribute to training/building cutting edge technologies. It worked so well for me that I told everyone I know about it and it has been part of our lives for years now.
