In a unique move among Maryland locales, the City of Westminster is building out its own municipal fiber broadband network. But the opportunity for tech gains doesn’t stop with the infrastructure itself, as a nonprofit was formed to create connections around the tech feature.

Called Mid-Atlantic Gigabit Innovation Collaboratory, Inc. (MAGIC), the nonprofit’s board is currently seeking an executive director. This search comes following the announcement that Amy Rupp, who joined in 2017 and has led growth at the organization from healthcare pilots in a pair of homes to an international reach for its Capture the Flag competitions, is resigning, effective Sept. 14.

Rupp and her husband are set to travel around the country as full-time RVers.

“Tech entrepreneurs question the status quo,” Rupp said in a statement. “They find better ways to solve problems, and they take calculated risks, knowing that the process, even if they fail, will enrich their lives. The passionate people that are a part of the MAGIC tech ecosystem were the catalyst for making our ‘one day’ dreams a reality. After over two years of working alongside tech entrepreneurs, I couldn’t help but take action on my own passions.”

Now MAGIC is seeking a leader to “attract, nurture, and retain tech businesses to the local community as part of collaborative efforts to enhance economic development in Westminster and Carroll County.”

With Labor Day and summer camps behind us, back-to-school time has officially arrived in Baltimore. As the year begins, Code in the Schools (CITS) is seeking instructors for its computer science education programming, which takes place in schools and community centers around the city. The full- and part-time roles for the 2019-20 school year involve planning and instruction, centered on the Code.org curriculum. It follows growth for CITS of late via partnership with the City of Baltimore.

“Are you a pet lover and a DevOps Engineer?”

That’s a question currently being asked over on the Technical.ly jobs board by VitusVet. The mobile pet health company that makes a platform bringing digital tools to pet practices is seeking an experienced engineer to play a key role in providing tools within its software development life cycle. The opening is one of a number of tech hires the company is making after relocating from Columbia to Baltimore’s Canton neighborhood, and receiving investment from Nationwide Insurance.

We’ve seen a few openings in Baltimore lately from Ad Hoc, the software agency that grew out of an effort to rescue healthcare.gov upon its launch. The company is still focused on building government digital services, and we first saw signs of its a connection locally via partnership with Fearless on a search engine for the federal government. Now Ad Hoc has postings for a trio of Baltimore-based roles, including design and product management.
