The Butler Hill Group has an immediate need for Russian Data Annotators to review and evaluate internet search results, in the Russian language, based on specific search terms and provide either a favorable or unfavorable rating depending on the relevance of the result to the search term.  The evaluation work is done according to specific guidelines using an automated tool.
