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.
Trade that Lunchables for an Equity Stake
If WeWork offers kombucha on tap and The Wing free rosé, will The Lane provide juice boxes? A sprawling new family-friendly “social club” is set to open in D.C. this January, and it’s already accepting applications for membership.
While your kids learn the basics of networking and circling the room in chaperoned play areas, you can send emails, browse Twitter, polish off that pitch-deck or build that Reddit karma, free of distractions in one of the club’s two cafes. Memberships start at $80 per month; it’s unclear if they include parents-only access to the ball pit.
If you and your fellow startup cofounders have started signing contracts without consulting a lawyer, now’s a great time to start. George Nemphos of Nemphos Braue Law specializes in startups, venture capital and entrepreneurship — and he knows how to keep clients from giving up “the keys to their kingdom.” Read about some of his recent work, or better yet, meet him at person at “Technologies of the Future,” a panel he’s moderating this Wednesday afternoon at Harbor Designs (1100 Wicomico St.) for Baltimore Innovation Week.
Meanwhile, executives at SmartLogic and Backroom recently reflected on their hiring practices and offered six ways to make your recruitment more thoughtful and intentional — and your office (or coworking space or table at the coffee shop) more diverse.
- Nava is hiring an Infrastructure Engineer. You’ll be heavily using tools like Docker, Packer, Terraform, Jenkins and Statsd/Graphite/Grafana. The position is also available in NYC and San Francisco.
- Quorum, which builds software for the public affairs sector, is seeking a Full-Stack Engineer. Quorum has repeatedly been named one of the District’s “startups to watch,” including by Technical.ly in 2017.
- Arc Publishing, a product engineering and services group at The Washington Post, is hiring a Professional Services Engineering Lead.
- SmartLogic, a web and mobile product development consulting firm, is hiring a Developer in Baltimore.
- If the acronyms MEAN, ELK and LAMP mean anything to you — and not as a new woodland-inspired item in the West Elm catalogue — Asymmetrik in Annapolis Junction is seeking a Full Stack Developer.
- Protenus in Baltimore is looking for a DevOps Engineer.
- Skynet isn’t just for the Pentagon: The U.S. Patent and Trade Office in Alexandria is seeking a Senior Level Artificial Intelligence Technical Expert to find opportunities to implement AI infrastructure and architecture.
- LeagueApps, which is working to build “the largest community around youth and local sports,” is hiring in Arlington for a Senior Software Engineer.
- If you like mystery, a self-described cofounder of AngelsList is seeking a Founding Engineer for an “Untitled VC Software Project.”
- Jack Henry & Associates is hiring a Remote Senior Software Engineer.
- HOMER, which builds learning products for children ages 2 to 8, is seeking a Remote Senior Software Engineer, Content. The position is also available in NYC and Los Angeles.
- Formstack is hiring a Remote Junior Software Developer.
The Lane will apparently include a rock-climbing wall, allowing kids to experience firsthand the struggle of climbing the business hierarchy, only to find a fleeting flash of joy at the top and an empty void that can be filled only by their own internal sense of fulfillment. Good luck on the job hunt!-30-
