This Week in Jobs: Summer’s Still Here and so Are the Dev Jobs

Old Navy may say it's back-to-school time but we know better.

Back to school? No way!

Don’t Dream It’s Over

It’s about that time when “back to school” advertisers try to convince us that summer is already over. Well, excuse us, Old Navy, but last time we checked we had three full weeks left.

Don’t let the Macy’s of the world win. Summer harder in these remaining few weeks than you’ve ever summered before. Ride bikes, no-hands style. Play video games in your basement (or on the old-school Phillytron). Carelessly toss your wet swimsuit on the floor so that it’s damp and icky when you put it on the next day.

And then, after you’ve made your point, take a look below at what’s good on the tech jobs scene.

The News

Fueled by peanut butter toast and a visit to the gym at 5 a.m. every morning, Senior Architect Manager Dennis Becton shares how he’s remained physically and figuratively pumped up to work at Vanguard for the last 25 years. Becton’s take on why he digs Vanguard’s agile and lean processes, emphasis on employee engagement and a focus on constantly building new features might just change everything you thought you knew about working at the investment firm. Check out the many technical opportunities here. Please note: waking up at 4:45 a.m. not required.

Thomas Charlton is a hard-charging CEO who just can’t quit Philly. Charlton recently relocated his third business, Goliath Technologies, from Conshohocken right into the heart of our City of Brotherly Love, citing talent as his biggest motivator. A now-even-closer tech company looking to recruit? Get on it.


And in side-hustle news we’ve only dreamed about, Red Queen Gaming is looking for devs who want to make some extra cash building gameplay tools for its online marketplace. Here’s the sitch: You create tools called “Runes.” Whenever your Rune is activated by a user, Red Queen pays you a royalty. Ready to live the dream? Click “play” here.

The Jobs

Marketing gurus, please stand up:

  • Noticed — a digital commerce, optimization and marketing agency — is looking for a “diehard B2B marketer at heart” with 2–3 years experience to be its Agency Marketing Manager.
  • Mobile content provider ReachMobi is hiring a Content Studio Leader who can guide a team of four, “get sh*t done” and is ready to control their own destiny. You know, like a serious professional who also takes their horoscope to heart.
  • Stanley Black & Decker is looking for a Consumer Insights Lead to join its Infrastructure Innovation Team. Must be an independent doer ready to brainstorm, ideate, prototype and develop new disruptive technologies. In other words: not for nap-lovers.

Operations pros, these are for you:

Mid-Atlantic talent, try these on for size:
