Crowdsourcing platforms are changing the way people can work and earn money. The population of workers on crowdsourcing platforms already counts millions and keeps growing. Workers on these platforms face several usability challenges, which we identify in this work by running two surveys on the CrowdFlower platform. Our surveys show that the majority of workers spend more than 25% of their time on searching tasks to work on. Limitations in the current user interface of the task listing page prevent workers from focusing more on the execution. In this work we present an attempt to design and implement a specific user interface for task listing aimed to help workers spend less time searching for tasks and thus navigate among them more easily.
