How we created Jobs NYC

Jobs NYC was created by the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, Housing, and Workforce Development, the Mayor’s Office for Talent and Workforce Development in collaboration with the Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity, and the NYC Office of Technology and Innovation. It was developed through a user-centered and iterative process with input from City agencies, provider organizations, and the New Yorkers it aims to serve.

Version 1 of the site launched in August 2020 as Working NYC, and version 2 in May of 2023 as Job Ready NYC. In February 2024, we launched version 3 of the site with additional resources and services for employers, and rebranded as Jobs NYC. The website will continue to evolve to include new features and programs in future iterations.

Jobs NYC promotes and supports web accessibility standards and meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 Level AA standard compliance.

Technology Powering Jobs NYC

Jobs NYC is developed on WordPress, an open-source content management system, and hosted on WP Engine. We leverage the robust community of plugin developers to manage content, some functionality and custom themes.

Jobs NYC’s front-end is based on the NYC Opportunity’s Design Patterns and the Office of Technology and Innovation’s MyCity Digital Services Design system. Content is developed and managed through Airtable and Gather Content.
