Contact Name: Simon Owens

Description:
MyCityWay is a real-time, user-driven, location-aware suite of urban reference apps for mobile devices designed to help you navigate and explore the world’s cities like never before. We are looking for a freelance journalist who can blog about city-related, open data-based news and research. The blogger will essentially be mining open data sources and using them to craft articles about urban trends. Here’s a good example of the kind of content he/she will be producing:

We are looking for content creators who have a background in online journalism and an interest in urban studies, social sciences, and open data. Candidates must be familiar with common blogging platforms (e.g. WordPress), be an avid social media user (e.g. Twitter and Facebook), have experience performing online research, be able to use simple photo editing tools, create slideshows, create basic tables and graphs, and have the ability to meet fast turnaround times and deadlines.

Besides blogging, there will likely be some data collection via 3rd party sites as well as internal data collected by MyCityWay. The plan is for the blogger to work 10 hours per week to produce 2-3 blog posts on a weekly basis at $20 an hour.

Please submit resumé/CV and 2-3 examples of your work to simonowens@jess3.com.
