The Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity

Office Logo

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 supported our portfolio of products on many aspects of their lifecycles, including strategy, scoping, research, development, delivery, and management. Much of the office's focus is to broaden the reach of city-based programs and services that drive down poverty. They 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, that information is published formats such as marketing sites, communication materials, open APIs, datasets, and other digital products for New Yorkers. Below are a few products that I worked on with specific project examples for each.
