The Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity
The Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity works to reduce poverty and increase equity for New York City residents. As a digital product designer and lead user interface (UI) engineer on my team, I support our portfolio of products on many aspects of their lifecycles, including strategy, scoping, research, development, delivery, and management. Much of our focus is to broaden the reach of city-based programs and services that drive down poverty. We do this by engaging other agency stakeholders to collect and standardize up-to-date information on services that provide employment, housing, health, cash assistance, and more. In turn, we publish that information in formats such as marketing sites, communication materials, open APIs, datasets, and other digital products for New Yorkers. Below are a few products that I have worked on with specific project examples for each.
