Ask HN: Is there a NYC AI startup job list anywhere?
15 points by time_management on July 15, 2008 | hide | past | web | favorite | 17 comments
I'm in New York, having recently left a job as a program trader at a hedge fund. I'm 25 and have no advanced degree, though I spent a year in a top math PhD program.

I'm looking for jobs at startups, but I haven't been able to find a comprehensive list, and I'm looking for something fairly particular. Ideally, I'd like to be in an AI/research role, though I know how small companies work and I'm willing to "wear different hats" and expand from my comfort zone.

What sorts of networking resources and job lists are available in the NYC startup community?

VCs usually list job openings at their portfolio companies, so for NYC, check out the Union Square Ventures jobs page (http://www.unionsquareventures.com/jobboard.html).

Silicon Alley Insider also has a jobs page with some startups listed (http://jobs.alleyinsider.com/).

And you can use "Reg D" to find out about startups which have just gotten funding that may not be listed anywhere else (http://redeye.firstround.com/2008/06/the-death-of-st.html).

The nextNY (http://groups.google.com/group/nextNYdigital) and NYC Tech Boosters (http://groups.google.com/group/nyc-tech-boosters) boards also list jobs from time to time.

Also, even though it's not a jobs board, you should subscribe to Jay Sulzberger's mailing list (http://lxny.org/correspondence.html) to find out about tech events in NY.

Boston is a wonderful town. You can bond with all the former New Yorkers -- just talk about how annoying it is that the trains stop running at 1am and the conversation will be off and running. Don't bring up the Yankees. ;)

I know that isn't a useful suggestion, but I don't know much about NYC.

You know about the upcoming Fog Creek Open House? That might be a great networking tool, one way or another: Either you will get along with the Fog Creek folks, or you can chat with all the people who secretly despise them but have turned up for the free food and the gossip value.

Anyway, I wish you good luck!

Is the Fog Creek Open House open-invite, or do I have to register or be invited? That sounds like a great idea.

Join NextNY, sign up for the email list, start going to events and start networking. http://nextny.org/

Interested in another job as a program trader?

Program trading is fine, if the environment is better. My problem at my last job is that I had trouble getting work done because the environment was extremely loud.

I am starting up a new fund (with backing), what is your email?
