“I wanted to let you know that Stitch just passed 100 paying clients less than 6 months from launch,” CEO Jake Stein told me in an email. “It took RJMetrics more than 5X as long (3 years) to reach that milestone.”
(Of course, it’s important to note that the two companies got off to a very different start: while RJMetrics was a bootstrapped effort from a pair of ex-venture capital guys in South Jersey, whereas Stitch began its life with a staff of 30 in an ample Center City office.)
Still, business seems to be moving along, which means there are some open spots at Stitch. Namely: a developer evangelist, a senior software engineer and an operations manager. Now, as you may have noticed from that staff picture up there, Stitch seems to have a diversity challenge.
“Yes, we have a lot of room to improve on that front,” Stein acknowledges. “I’m confident there’s no explicit biases but, are we unconsciously biased toward people who have had the same experiences as us? We’re talking about that.” Those open spots will be a good opportunity to see how those talks are going.

WebLinc’s lead dev Joe Giambrone shared this gig on our Slack channel. The Old City ecommerce shop is on the market for a Ruby On Rails developer to join its team. The gig comes with plenty of perks, including a solar-powered office (well, partly), a discount to National Mechanics and Lucha Cartel (both owned by WebLinc CEO Darren Hill) and access to an axe-throwing league (!) spearheaded by Giambrone.
