Santa Monica, Calif.-based Inspire has a livestream at their Center City Philadelphia satellite office that lets workers peek into what the West Coast camp is doing.
The energy company, founded by Patrick Maloney in 2014, has a staff of about 40, evenly split between the West Coast and a 6,000-square-foot space in the Graham Building inaugurated in September. (The Graham Building is also where coworking space Pipeline is.)
“We started out of my house but it didn’t work because my kids kept creeping in Google Hangouts,” said Philly-based CTO Michael Durst.
The company offers customers in deregulated states (like Pennsylvania and California) opt for wind-based renewable energy in their homes. So if you switch to Inspire, PECO will remain your energy provider but Inspire will buy renewable energy certificates from wind farms in the amount of energy you consumed.
Fresh off their mention in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, the cofounders at goPuff are looking to hire a social media associate to help build up the company’s online presence. From the looks of the brand’s Twitter feed, you can expect to a) RT a lot of goPuff love from late night cravers and b) look up tons of food-related GIFs. They’re also hiring a backend developer.

“If you don’t think data has gone mainstream, keep in mind that I’m now competing with PGW for SQL talent,” Moore tweeted, quoting in the same tweet PGW’s post on our jobs board for an SQL analyst. “This makes me super happy.”
You can see this competition go down IRL at NET/WORK, our tech jobs fair at The Fillmore on Feb. 7, because both PGW and Magento, where Moore became head of analytics after the company acquired RJMetrics, will be there.
Speaking of NET/WORK, there are now 35 companies confirmed to be at the event, including StratIS/Bulogics, CardConnect and Susquehanna International Group. Free stuff? A bunch: free headshots, workshops and resume reviews. Not to mention some pretty serious swag game. See you there.
