About Citizen

Citizen’s mission is to protect the world by building a global safety network of people protecting each other. The network is powered by technology that generates instant alerts about crime and other emergencies - as they occur. Each incident on the platform creates a temporary local network of people who use the Citizen product to protect each other, broadcasting live video, and communicating with others nearby.

We are looking for a mission-driven, tech-savvy self-starter to join our growing user safety & privacy team as a community moderator. All user-generated content is reviewed by this team of talented moderators who work closely with analysts in our Safety Operations Center to ensure the community is engaging in a safe environment.

Please note that we run a 24/7 operation and team members must have schedule flexibility to take on weekend shifts.
