10 Game-Changing NYC Startups Hiring Tech Talent

There’s no shortage of NYC startups hiring tech talent, but you talented, passionate, experienced engineers out there don’t want to work just anywhere. To help you find a job working on something awesome, we compiled a list of some of the most exciting companies developing technology in VR, cryptocurrency, 3D imaging, and more.

Body Labs

Funding stage: $11M Series A
Job opportunities: Full-Time Scanning Projects Assistant, Lead Platform Engineer, System Administrator, Software Development Test Engineer
Why it’s a game changer:

“When depth camera (RGB-D cameras) are integrated with everyone’s phone, the first scans will be bodies. From there, we have the AI algorithm to make sense of the data. Dream of the impact.”

3D imaging utilizes bleeding edge scanning and modeling technologies, and at Body Labs, they’re pushing it even farther. They just launched the Soma Shape API, which can generate 3D models based on 2D photos. The future is now!

3d imaging jobs


Funding stage: Pre-Series A
Job opportunities: Bioinformatics Analyst, Bioinformatics Scientist, Software Engineer
Why it’s a game changer: Envisagenics is making biomedical data actionable. But don’t take it from us:

“Envisagenics’ breakthrough technology, SpliceCoreTM, is a cloud-based platform that is experimentally validated to predict drug targets and biomarkers through splicing discovery from RNA-seq data. The company will use its software to identify new splicing errors causative of the disease, identify the right drug-targets and develop RNA therapeutics through partnerships and collaborations with Biopharma. Envisagenics’ in-silico RNA therapeutics discovery platform replaces expensive drug-target selection and lead design with efficient computer simulations, decreasing time, cost, and failure risk of drug development programs.”

Whew. I think I need a nap.
