Editorâ€™s Note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the regionâ€™s most exciting career opportunities. Weâ€™ve lovingly called itÂ This Week in JobsÂ (aka TWIJ (â€śtwidgeâ€ť) here at Technical.ly HQ). Below is this weekâ€™s edition. (Hereâ€™s last weekâ€™s.)Â
Thanks! â€” @zackseward
To borrow from the poetic verse of Phillyâ€™s freshest Prince, itâ€™s officially â€śsummer, summer, summertime.â€ť Time to â€śsit back and unwindâ€ť at the shore with a Ritaâ€™s water ice and your weekly guide to tech jobs that are as scorching hot as leather seats in a sun-drenched car.
You might think motivational posters are fluffy nonsense, butÂ Power Home RemodelingÂ literally â€śreached for the skyâ€ť last week during theÂ NBA DraftÂ with its #PhillyWantsLeBron campaign, and it was exquisite. The aerial marketing push flattered Mr. James, confused New Yorkers and successfully garnered attention for the city of Philadelphia and Power Home Remodeling (hiring tons of rolesÂ across the Mid-Atlantic). So live life to the fullest. Listen to your heart. And remember, nothing is impossible; the word itself says â€śIâ€™m possible.â€ťÂ ?
Some days it feels like Philly is theÂ geeky girl in the moviesÂ who simply takes off her glasses and is suddenly a total babe. Those close to her always knew she was special, but now everyone else can see it too! Case in point:Â After a yearlong experiment, Nebraska-based fintech firmÂ Orion AdvisorÂ has officially opened a new outpost in King of PrussiaÂ around CMOÂ Kelly Waltrich, who noted, â€śPhilly is the ideal locationâ€¦surrounded by world-class colleges, universities, and financial services firms, and we have one of the most vibrant and underrated tech scenes in the biz.â€ť Put those glasses back on and take a look at the growing officeâ€™sÂ job listings.
Looking for a challenge with coworkers that feel like family? Software consultantÂ Jack LazorchakÂ shared what itâ€™s like to work for Fort Washington dev shopÂ Chariot Solutions, and it sounds like the perfect dynamic of warm fuzzies and cutting-edge technology. Sort of like aÂ robot puppy, but less unsettling. ApplyÂ here!
