Some people are tired of hearing about the lack of engineers in New York City. Developers, developers, developers! Product designers are in high demand too, you guys. And now they have their own organization.
Betabeat got a tip in our inbox this week alerting us to a new site for New York Product Designers or NYPD. Under the tagline, “New York’s Finest,” the site features the names and Twitter links to the top product designers from local startups like Codecademy (Allison House), Kickstarter (Andrew Cornett, Zach Sears, Jessica Harllee), Etsy (Kim Bost, Randy Hunt, Magera Holton), Forrst (Kyle Bragger), Svpply (Allan Yu), and more. Three more names have been added in just the past few days.
The tipster, who signed off “911 operator” (okay, let’s not get carried away here), said that for now, “It’s just a list to help ourselves because there are so few of us compared to the devs in NY. But we’re looking to grow into hosting meetups, sharing design resources, and posting jobs at startups.”
