The Big Apple is looking to hire its first Chief Digital Officer (CDO) to assist them in leveraging social media to the city’s advantage.

Once on board, the CDO will also “help to develop forward-thinking policies on social media, digital communication, Web 2.0 initiatives, and other tools to better serve the public.” The CDO will be expected to develop new ways to keep residents informed and engaged, ensure that the city sends consistent messages and makes all of this information accessible.

To do this the CDO will work with the Mayor’s office of operations and the Press Office as well as the NYC Law Department in order to integrate existing multimedia content from various city outlets with the city’s website. There’s alot more to this role so click here for more deets. Good Luck!
