NYG&B Labs is an innovative space to leverage the latest trends in technology and digital services to assist in telling the stories of New York’s families.
This is an exciting opportunity for aspiring digital professionals seeking to advance their expertise in technology and its applications for the fields of history and genealogy, while gaining practical, hands-on experience. Projects created in the NYG&B Labs will have an immediate positive impact on the genealogy and history community.
How does it work?
Each quarter, the NYG&B will welcome up to two members of the NYG&B Labs team.
As a team member, each participant will work on a designated, pre-approved project. Once completed, projects may be added to resources at NewYorkFamilyHistory.org or elsewhere.
The NYG&B is specifically seeking team members with an interest in technology, geo-coding, mapping, social media, website development, digital services, history, and other topics.
Members of the NYG&B Labs team will benefit from one-on-one interaction with experts in the fields of genealogy and technology as they work to creatively apply technology to traditional genealogical methods relating to New York’s history.
A minimum of 10 hours per week is required during the quarter and a stipend of $1,250 will be paid to each team member, each quarter. Team members can work from anywhere in the world, though it is preferred that they are able to work out of the NYG&B offices at least 10 hours per week.
