In this paper, we describe the „Neighbourhood Networks‟ platform, a platform that allows residents in an area to create and to join a network based on place, and with the objective to post and to apply for casual household jobs in their neighbourhood. We describe the architecture and implementation of the platform, the website and the smartphone user interfaces that residents use to post and to apply for jobs, and the results of a pilot usability study that has been conducted. We expect platforms like this to become an integral feature of digital cities in the future.
