Four months ago, we launched the redesign of EveryBlock complete with a bunch of new features to encourage people to start connecting and sharing with their neighbors.
The combination of the redesign, increased marketing efforts and good old neighborly conversation has led to a significant spike in activity on EveryBlock, particularly in our largest market and hometown, Chicago. Now, we’re ready to build on our success and grow the EveryBlock community even more.
We’re currently looking for a community coordinator in New York City who can help build and manage the EveryBlock community in their area. The coordinator’s main focus will be New York, but they’ll be responsible for moderating conversations in several additional East Coast cities as well.
For now, this is a temporary job with a six-month timeframe, but it does have the possibility for extension. In addition, we expect it to take about 25 hours per week to start, but as the community grows, so will the time commitment.
So what does our ideal candidate look like? We’re looking for someone who already has an active social media presence and understands how to engage with people in an online environment while also building an audience. As with any community manager role, excellent judgment and strong writing skills are critical. And finally, this person has to be both knowledgeable and passionate about New York City.
We’re really excited about this first step toward building out our community management team. For more information or to submit your resume, check out the official job posting.
