On the Market is a column where we highlight noteworthy job openings and the people who are lookin’. Got a submission? Email us and tell us why you belong in the roundup.


We’re always interested in unique on-ramps into the tech sector.

Like Tonic Design’s “minion” program for those without any coding experience, or the way Jarvus used the School District’s Urban Technology Project as a talent pipeline.

Here’s another one that caught our eye: Leadnomics, the University City lead generation company, is hiring what they’re calling an engineering support specialist. They’re looking for a person with a technical background, like an information systems degree, who wants to get into coding but doesn’t have the experience to land a job in the field just yet. You’d work on technical documentation and manage products and get to learn to code on the side (you’d work with software engineer Mariam Talebi, who makes a mean baklava).

The company is also hiring two leadership roles: a director of product and a chief revenue officer.

Leadnomics was just one of more than 70 companies at our NET/WORK jobs fair at The Fillmore yesterday. You can check out a top-level view of the jobs offered that day, but we also scanned the room for newsworthy gigs.

Here’s what we found.

Comcast is building out its five-person Android team for its Xfinity TV apps. (Their counterpart iOS team is about twice the size.) They’re looking for senior Android developers or an experienced Java developer who’s interested in learning Android — they’ll teach you. Reach out to engineering manager Shannon Moores at Shannon_Moores@comcast.com if you’re interested.

MeetMe is building a big data team for a new recommendation engine. The New Hope-based, publicly-traded social network just hired Drexel Ph.D. Anton Slutsky to run the team. Slutsky was most recently Sidecar’s director of data science. They’re hiring a big-data engineer and two data analysts. You’d join the company’s 120 employees.

"My mom's been asking for a photo of me with this 3D printer," said Information Assurance Specialists systems engineer Ben Ehrlich.

South Jersey-based Information Assurance Specialists makes routers, among other things, for the U.S. government. They get a shoutout for using a 3D printer to attract people to their booth as well as a big ol’ stop sign that said, “LINUX ENGINEERS WANTED.” (We didn’t see many other booths looking for Linux engineers.) If you’re interested, contact the company here.
