As a Gaming Moderator you will protect our client’s brand and make sure their reputation is kept safe at all times; in this position, you are the key in providing a positive gaming experience for all users, while being aware of any potential issues on the gaming platform.

As a core part of the opportunity, you will be reviewing strong graphic images, sound files and written content that may violate the guidelines of the community.

All candidates will have to agree to a criminal background check and provide details for 2 professional referees at the point of accepting an offer of work.


Excellent Japanese and English level: As you’ll be moderating content in both languages, it’s a must to have superb reading skills.

Background experience: either engagement, social customer care, localisation, translation, copywriting, moderation, and/or community management, either with a brand or digital agency.

Social Media knowledge: Experience in using either Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, TikTok, LinkedIn and/or YouTube.
