• Wanted: Foodspotting Ambassadors

    We often feel that we have it all at Foodspotting. After all, who wouldn’t love spending the day browsing photos of food, hosting fun eat-ups, and consulting Foodspotting to help us decide what to eat next?

    Of course, our ambition to cover the globe with good food recommendations means that we have much more to do than simply salivating over delicious foods. That's why we're excited to announce we’re looking for ten creative, magnetic, motivated and inspiring individuals to join our cause as Foodspotting Ambassadors.

    We are already working with users who are taking part in these extracurricular activities to represent Foodspotting, but we want to turn this into an official program – one where these members are recognized both by our team and within the community as superstars. Do you consider yourself an above average food fanatic? Are all your friends hooked on Foodspotting because of you? Do you want to play a part in our success? Do you desire to build bridges between food and tech, restaurants and social media, strangers and friends? If you answered yes to everything above, keep reading...

    AS A FOODSPOTTING AMBASSADOR, WE HOPE YOU'LL...

    • Help organize and lead monthly eat-ups and food crawls.

    • Share Foodspotting with your social media networks and spread good news like wildfire online, at work, and to your friends, especially during major holidays and Foodspotting milestones.

    • Brainstorm ways to engage your immediate community by finding ways to work with restaurants, food writers, bloggers and local media companies.

    • Represent Foodspotting at important press events, demos, and parties in your city.

    • Keep up to date on upcoming events to see how Foodspotting can participate.

    • Identify great restaurants to collaborate with.

    • Identify super users and other potential Foodspotting ambassadors in your city.

    AS OUR THANKS, YOU’LL RECEIVE…

    • Foodspotting t-shirts and pins for you and for giving away.

    Foodzie.com gift box (6-month subscription)

    • Invitations to events, private parties, samples from partners, and more.

    • Earn gift certificates to your favorite restaurants.

    • Preview access to new Foodspotting features.

    • Become a suggested user in your city.

    • Guidance in the fields of food, social media, marketing, entrepreneurship, startups and mobile technology. We want our Ambassador program to be a success, which means we’re looking to extend introductions to our professional network for the right candidates.

    • The support of likeminded individuals who will be working toward a common goal from Sydney to San Francisco.

    If this sounds like you, join our cause. We're taking applications until Friday, July 8th, and you'll hear from us in a few weeks regarding next steps. We can't wait to meet you!

    7/17 UPDATE: Applications are now closed and we will be reaching out to potential candidates for phone interviews soon.

      @Amy, at first I read this line "ten creative, magnetic, motivated and inspiring individuals" as "ten creative, magic..." and I thought to myself, 'yeah, they should know magic!'

      The Apply Here link seems to be wrong, it takes you to a google app login page.

      Hi! This sounds really fun! Would you be looking for someone in London or only US?
    • about 3 years ago.
      This is probably not the right place to put it - but I'd love to hear about who the influential people are in the global foodspotting community .. here is an article (not a very good one) of something similar done on another website... http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0021202 "Leaders in Social Networks, the Delicious Case"

      I signed up! :) Is there a plan to have multiple ambassadors in one community?
    • about 3 years ago.
      Aaah can't believe I only saw this today and missed the deadline! If you need more people in the future I'll be sure to apply. I'm in Portugal, love Foodspotting and I'd love to help. :)

      Hi guys, we will definitely be looking for more ambassadors in the future. Keep in touch and remember to follow Foodspotting on Twitter, Facebook and here to get the latest news from our team :)

      Hello team, have you made any selections for ambassadors yet? Did I missed the announcement :(
    • almost 3 years ago.
      If you ever need a Rome, Italy ambassador for the next two years, consider your man found. I'm terrible at Italian, but I speak Foodie fluently! Just found your site for the first time today and already I know we are completely on the same team. - http://justvasgo.blogspot.com/

      What about in Canada?
    • almost 3 years ago.
      Hey guys, are you looking for ambassadors in Toronto, Canada at all? I would love to start something here!

      I think Foodspotting is a great idea, because it gives everybody (not only food inspectors) the opportunity to let others know what they think of the dishes out there. I have tried every Michelin Star Restaurant in London and some times was very disappointed. So I´m happy to have discovered this app. It also helps me to remember which dishes I have tried and were, since I eat out a lot, about 6 days a week, it can be a challenge to keep track at times.
