Want to work in Silicon Alley? Internet Week New York introduces interactive job posting map

Made In NY Digital Map screencap

This morning at Internet Week New York, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne, and Internet Week New York Chairman David-Michel Davies addressed the audience with an announcement of a new online interactive map that will highlight all the tech startups, investors, and incubator spaces to help those at home find job postings in the Big Apple.

Named the Made In New York Digital Map, the visual job listings can be sorted to show businesses that are looking to hire new employees so those interested in a job in tech no longer have to sort through Craigslist or manually sift through their favorite startups’ Careers sections. The project was created by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment in partnership with Internet Week NY and the New York Tech Meetup to promote the large tech community in New York that is quickly growing past “Boston, MA as the second-highest ranked U.S. city to attract venture capital.” The map is also color coded to show where congregations of businesses are more closely located in sections of the city.

“The Made in NY Digital Map is a visual testament to the vibrant state of New York’s digital industry – showing a powerful constellation of over 500 homegrown startups, investors and coworking spaces across the five boroughs,” the official site states.”The City recognizes that a growing digital sector is crucial to a healthy and diverse economy and seeks to facilitate a vibrant environment by supporting the needs of technology entrepreneurs.”

If you own a startup and want to be highlighted on the map, you can also contact the site to get your business on the records. At the time of publishing, Made In NY Digital Map currently lists 324 tech companies on its server with the hopes of expanding more once the word gets out about the service. Whether you’re looking for a career in tech or just curious about the companies in your neighborhood, the map is a true visual support of why New York deserves its colloquial nickname as the Silicon Alley.
