Talk Digital Strategy with Etsy and Huge – May 16th
Want to know how a company surpasses the $1 billion mark in sales? Find out when DUMBO-based Huge hosts its first Digital Strategy Meetup featuring Etsy’s Director of Search and Personalization, Dr. Jason Davis.
Just last August Etsy changed the default sort order of its online marketplace from recency to relevancy. While, at a technical level, this change involved only a single line of code and a few altered pixels on the site, it introduced a fundamental shift in the dynamics of the marketplace and helped the company surpass $1 billion in sales.
Etsy’s success is just a small example of the huge growth in NYC’s tech industry. But as the industry grows, the talent gap for web developers is widening. Something, long-term resident Huge is fully aware of, which is why the company is committed to creating more knowledge-sharing opportunities in DUMBO.
So join Huge for a chat with Etsy’s Dr. Jason Davis about the development, planning and goals of their search transformation, and discuss everything from business strategy and product development to marketing digitally.
May 16th 6:30pm. 45 Main Street – 2nd floor.
