The varied contribution in the community of now more than 10 million SoundClouders around the world keeps blowing our minds every day. We’ve seen so many different ways you’ve all made an impact in one way or another: whether they’re through meaningful connections formed, experimental collaborations, offline or online evangelists and supporters. The spirit of community has always been at the heart of who we are. In the past, some of you have stepped up as leaders within the community. To us, you are heroes and we’ve got something for you. Welcome to our new Community program: The SoundCloud Heroes. With the SoundCloud Hero program, we’re building a global network of local offline & online volunteer SoundCloud ambassadors.
Who are we looking for? You’re an inspiring connector, communicator and leader in your community who gets things done. You understand SoundCloud’s mission to unmute the web with all forms of audio. You see sound as the missing element on the web for expressing yourself. You’re enthusiastic to support SoundCloud’s mission on a local level with a global impact.
What you’ll be doing:
- Local user collaborations
- Speaker series (e.g. spoken word nights at your favorite local cafe)
- Sound theme events and “missions” that can be collaborated with the other local SoundCloud heroes
- Or simply grabbing some brews with other local SoundClouders at a meetup
Whatever great and impactful ideas and goals you have in mind that are specific to expanding the SoundCloud community in your city, we want to help you! We’ll provide you with guidance to help you on your way. To say thanks, we’ll hook you up with some sweet swag, some of which includes:
- A trip to meet and work with our team in either San Francisco or Berlin
- Limited edition t-shirts
- Official cards with your name on it
- Supply of pins, stickers and t-shirts
- More surprises to be added throughout the year!
Where? We’re starting our search for heroes in US metropolitan cities like Austin, San Francisco, New York City and Chicago. If you’re not in one of these US cities or outside of the US but think you can still bring the SoundCloud game to your city, let us know where you’re at and why you’d make a great hero. Don’t worry! We’ll be in touch when we’re ready to expand the program throughout the year.
How do I apply? Apply here. The SoundCloud Community Team will review all applications and choose people we feel will best represent SoundCloud in their local communities. The program will be ongoing and we’re not limiting the number of SoundCloud Heroes in each city. Good luck! If you have any questions, reach out to heroes[at]soundcloud[dot]com
