Technical.ly Coverage

Technical.ly helps professionals navigate their careers through our independent newsroom, events and services. We report on local economies in change, convening the smartest people and organizations in industries that matter to help communities thrive in the future.

We see our local newsroom as a unique business strategy for building and maintaining trust, while providing a civic good. From our 10 years in local reporting on, and convening of, the innovation communities of Philadelphia, Delaware, Baltimore, Washington DC, among others, we have become the natural meeting ground of future teams. We are here to serve growing organizations, technologists, entrepreneurs and people who care about technology’s local impact.

To that end, we have identified our product market fit to be within what we’ve come to recognize as talent services for growing companies: (1) providing a company culture and job search platform (2) empowering hiring organizations through employer branding services such as third party storytelling and (3) serving as the conduit for direct placement through our Match program.

We want to transform lives by connecting them with the career opportunities that fit their dreams, and we use a local newsroom to build the relationships that matter most.

Technical.ly is published by Technically Media, the company that also organizes Philly Tech Week and publishes Generocity.org.

ABOUT YOU

You genuinely care about the futures of our clients and how they are to evolve their technical programs to compete locally and globally.
