You: a Greenpoint/Williamsburg resident who knows all the local goings-on. Your local cafe makes your coffee order by heart before you’re completely in the door. While waiting, you’re on your phone checking for the latest updates.

Cinch: a local app looking to make the leap from Long Island to the Big-Indie-Brooklyn-Hood known as Greenpoint/Williamsburg. Community building is in their DNA, as this app is about keeping it local and supporting small businesses and organizations. Sounds like something you’re into? You’re in luck, since they are looking for a Community Leader.

Cinch is an app for your phone or tablet that connects to local business specials within the area. It’s kind of like LiveSocial or Groupon, but better. Businesses get more of the money from your purchase, and you donate to a local charity of your choice every time you use it. Additionally, you can save up to 30% with the businesses you normally shop with anyways. Way to build your community while getting those Holiday gifts!

What you’ll be doing for Cinch in this position is signing up local businesses and helping them create enticing offers. They provide a monthly event budget, marketing kit, and online support. Many current Community Leaders are also local bloggers, managers of local community groups, and active members within volunteer organizations.
