Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge.”). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.
The first half of 2019 is over. Don’t panic — you still have plenty of time to set and meet your goals, but you only have a couple months to enjoy the summer. It can get pretty crowded with tourists around D.C., so here is a list of drivable getaways perfect for this time of year.
If you love us too much to leave us, then get on the music train, because there are a ton of festivals going on around here. Capital Jazz Fest is this weekend, and tickets are still available. You gotta go see Gladys Knight!
If the sound of music hit a nerve (we hope it did), check out this local Client Solutions Partner role with Spotify.
Rockville-based software company Motionsoft has announced a fundraising round that secured $17 million. Creating products that serve the health and wellness industry, Motionsoft says that the new round of funding will help grow its products and people, so be sure to check out its jobs page.
Peering and internet exchange points (IXP) are new concepts for the area, so we spent time with the network engineer making this happen in Baltimore. Deven Weaver, founder of BaltIX, gives us a quick lesson on the technology and its benefits to the city. If you’re into this concept, or want to hear more about IXP (and possibly some job opportunities) RSVP to BaltIX’s workshop on June 13.
Accessibility Month just ended, but the concept of an inclusive digital age will definitely continue to be a major push for organizations. In order to help you talk the talk, we built a glossary based on local experts’ suggestions of the terms they think everyone should learn.

“Hello, Dolly!” is now playing at the Kennedy Center, and in honor of the iconic musical, we’ll leave you with this popular quote:
“Money, pardon the expression, is like manure. It’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around, encouraging young things to grow.”
We hope you are well on your way to spreading this metaphorical manure around, and if these jobs weren’t enough, check out our jobs page 24/7. Until next time, stay winning!-30-
