About the Sharing Cities Alliance  
The Sharing Cities Alliance is an independent foundation that connects cities from all continents, and fosters city-to-city learning, empowering city governments to continuously address the sharing economy. We do this by co-organizing a yearly summit, organizing quarterly online seminars and one-on-one meetings with city officials from participating cities. Right now, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Dallas, Ghent, Gothenburg, Malmö, New York City, Norwich, Seoul, Singapore, Tel Aviv, The Hague, Toronto and Washington have joined officially and multiple other cities are in the process of joining (including Vancouver, Madrid, Johannesburg, Tel Aviv, Tapei, Tokyo, Adelaide and Quito). Knowledge-wise we have created the 'Alliance Lexicon', which is a constantly evolving database with case studies, research and policies for and by the cities. In a monthly magazine we update all cities on the latest developments.

You will be part of a small passionate team who are constantly interacting with city officials all over the world to empower, connect and keep them up to speed with the latest in the sharing & platform economy. Our office is located in the centre of Amsterdam. We share our office with shareNL and the building with other start-ups. So you will work in a dynamic and inspiring start-up environment.
