Do a quick internet search for tech start-ups in nyc and you’ll get a lot of hits. New York City, known to many for food, fashion and finance (and obviously so many more industries) also has a healthy and growing technology scene.
Instead of a general search you can check out this site of smaller companies based in the city: Made in NY. Not only is there a fun list to peruse but if you are looking to get into this field, the site mentions if a company is hiring.
I also just joined Meetup which offers speaking events and venues for people interested in digital media, development, content etc. to come together and discuss their craft.
Since I have been building out a few websites, I recently came across a company called Mezzobit and had the opportunity to work with them. They were incredibly professional and a great example of the burgeoning tech industry found throughout the city. I included a little blurb from the company below and I would encourage you to check them out.
Mezzobit works with digital publishers and marketers to simplify and optimize everything related to internet data collection. The Chelsea-based company, which is part of the Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator and was founded by former Newsweek and XM Satellite Radio executives, now has more than 30 customers, including several major media brands. Its free cloud platform manages data collection tags that slow down website performance and burden IT budgets. Its visualization tools help digital publishers and marketers get a handle on the data they’re sharing with third parties and stem the flow of data leakage that now costs billions each year in lost advertising and sales revenue. And through an innovative partnership with the data privacy non-profit DataNeutrality.org, the company is curing the distrust of consumers and enterprises by bringing new levels of transparency to how data is handled.
