New York’s tech scene continues to gain some serious momentum, as even Mayor Bloomberg admitted at SXSW last week. Here at Betabeat, we like to be especially servicey, so we’re compiling another list of the tech VIPs that startups in New York are dying to hire.

As we wrote last year:

Who’s really good, but working at a really bad company? Who are the allstars who could kick ass anywhere, any time, at any gig, and even be fun to be around? Who would we want to hire, if we had an infinite pot of gold? How likely is it they’ll leave? Are they bored, underpaid, or underutilized? And who is in line, or should be, to score a raise?

They’re no newbies: many of these players have extensive track records in startup success, which makes recruiters especially eager to poach them. They also might be unhappy at their current gig, or work at a company that’s struggling. So help us help you: whether they’re talented engineers, biz dev whizzes or UX designers, who are the most poachable players in the NYC tech scene? Send them to tips@betabeat.com.

In the meantime, let’s all brush up on our poaching etiquette.
