If anyone works in NYC, or knows someone who works in NYC in tech and is hiring please hit me up 👍
@moth good luck moth!!
@moth @firstname.lastname@example.org I thought you knew people in NYC?
@moth what is it you’re looking to be hired as?
@moiety Not many in my industry. I'm a software developer who's been working in high frequency routing, server-less architecture, and dev-ops for the last few years.
@moth does anything in this list interest you?
Most positions are available as remote too (even if not listed as such).
@moiety Assuming some of these can be remote I found some that look great
@moth if you want I could forward your resume to the appropriate people :)
@moth Do you know about TWC (Tech Workers Coalition)? They do labor organizing and leftist activism within the tech world, and they have a Slack which includes a job-board channel. They also have a branch in NYC (unlike most places - they're mostly just in NYC, SF, and Seattle)
@anomaly I haven't! do you have a link to any of their resources?
@hypolite I did I'll respond shortly, thanks!
@moth You have my empathy. I worked in NYC until early March. After being unemployed for over three months, I found a job in Rochester.
@FASA_Andrew_1879 For the time being I'm still employed in PDX, and that shouldn't change, but I need some good excuses to visit/potentially work around NYC
@moth There seem to be plenty of tech companies, but they're all looking for full stack developers or similar skillsets. Brooklyn has a number of dotcoms, including Makerbot.
@FASA_Andrew_1879 As far as full stack goes the experience I'm missing for that is front end development. At my current job we do our own tooling, devops, and architecture
@FASA_Andrew_1879 And even then I've slowly been working on learning React so I'm getting there
@moth Out of my reach. I'm a process guy - ITIL, incident/change management, service delivery, insourcing/outsourcing engagement. I've got Linux skills and a background in tech writing. I just don't have the ability to be a developer. Sadly, writing #ttrpg materials doesn't bring enough cash to make a living in a capitalist society.
@moth hi yes im in nyc and in tech
the place I work for isn't hiring tho :|
@moth You might check out angel.co - all (actual, not ten-year-old companies without a plan beyond slurping VC cash) startups, no recruiters, so the pain factor’s more tolerable. If you want/need, “remote” is a filter option as well. NYC’s fairly well represented.
