Background

In less than two years YouthfulCities has taken the world by storm. Our goal is to build more connected, active, explorative, vivacious, open, creative ... youthful cities to live work and play in. We are well underway in 60+ cities covering the globe en route to 100 by 2015. More than a hundred Urban Decoders -- our youth on the ground -- are working hard to illuminate and decode whats going on in their cities. We are shining a light on how valuable youth are to cities and the companies and organizations within them. 

In November 2013, we launched the inaugural YouthfulCities Index which ranked the biggest 25 cities from a youth perspective. The global interest was amazing. 100+ media hits from the likes of Time, The Huffngton Post, MSN, Yahoo, The Financial Times, CBC, Globe and Mail and even a 45 second hit on Jimmy Kimmel Live. But that was just a start. There is a new global urban youth survey launching in October 2014 and the second annual 

YouthfulCities Index in January 2015. Plus there is a steady stream of great content coming in from our Urban Decoders around the plant. 

We want more. We want YouthfulCities content to blow everyone away, impress potential sponsors, grab the media's attention and connect with urban youth. Are you up for it?

 

The Specs:

Experience Level: 3-5 years content experience 
3 month probationary contract, with opportunity to become full-time employee.
