Director, Technology

2-4 hours / weekly
We are a cities research and innovation nonprofit preparing neighbourhoods for the future. We inform the public, inspire action, and act as catalysts for creating collaborative solutions that guide cities through a rapidly urbanizing world.

We envision cities as vibrant inclusive spaces where engaged residents are informed and inspired to build smart urban solutions. These cities enable residents to contribute to the social fabric of their communities and foster opportunities, belonging and happiness. 

Our approach to neighbourhood change is rooted in technology. We have developed 3 digital tools in partnership with the University of Alberta. We have built and maintain a search engine (similar to Google), a digital learning guides platform (similar to Coursera), and Creative Community Lab (similar to Indeed).
