This blog post is guest-written by Jennifer Griffin, Moderation Capacity Team Lead at Bazaarvoice.
It has been quite a month for Bazaarvoice! We were named Austin’s Best Place to Work, and our CEO Brett Hurt was just named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in Austin. In addition to these very prestigious awards, Bazaarvoice awarded our top moderators by inducting them into the Bronze, Silver, or Gold Club. Together, our moderators have read and moderated over 50 million reviews, with our three Gold Club team members moderating over 100 million characters each! To put it in perspective, that’s the equivalent of moderating War and Peace more than 32 times!
This is a world-class achievement — these moderators have read and moderated more reviews than anyone else in the world!
Bazaarvoice has always been proud to tout its unique culture, and this pride has spread to the Moderation Team as well. When Bazaarvoice does a service project, the moderators are quick to lend a hand. For our Teddy Bear drive last Christmas, the moderators brought in more teddies than any other Bazaarvoice team! And just as Bazaarvoice wears green to cheer on our Sales Team at the end of a quarter, so do the moderators. We meet regularly for happy hours and team events, and some moderators even meet in small groups to visit client stores they are curious about.
As a world-class organization, we hire only the best, and our moderators come from all walks of life. All of them have Bachelor’s degrees, and many have Master’s degrees and beyond. We have lawyers, teachers, flight instructors, and trapeze artists. Their backgrounds are eclectic and unique, but at the core is their passion for what they do. Our moderators take to heart that they are our “Guardians of the Brand.” If you know someone with the passion and dedication to join our team, we’re hiring!
