Editor’s Note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ (“twidge”) here at Technical.ly HQ). Below is this week’s edition. (Here’s the last one we published on the site (it’s meant to live in your inbox).)
Thanks! — @zackseward
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.
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.
