Senior Community Strategist at Nextdoor
San Francisco, CA, US

Nextdoor’s mission is to leverage the power of technology to build stronger and safer neighborhoods everywhere. Every neighborhood in the U.S. now uses Nextdoor to publicize local events, find lost pets, recommend local service providers, give away or sell household items they no longer need, share information about neighborhood safety, and discuss local issues.


Community is central to Nextdoor's mission. Today, Nextdoor supports more than 250,000 neighborhoods all over the world. Nextdoor neighborhoods are run by dedicated neighborhood leaders, who start Nextdoor neighborhoods, invite their neighbors, welcome new members, encourage conversations, educate members about new features, moderate discussions to keep them civil, keep Nextdoor organized, organize events to bring neighbors together in real life, and more.


As a Senior Community Strategist, you will be responsible for developing systems and communities to recruit, train, guide, and inspire these local leaders on a global basis. You will help improve our systems for selecting these leaders, develop training programs to enable them to be effective as possible, create and execute a communication strategy to encourage and inspire them, and manage communities (online and potentially offline as well) to support them.
