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). Below is this week’s edition. Here’s the last one we published; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.
Dwight: “This morning I knocked myself in the head with the phone.”
Jim: “That actually took a while. I had to put more and more nickels into his handset until he got used to the weight, and then I just took them all out.”
— Dwight K. Schrute and Jim Halpert, The Office
Pranks for nothin’
Well, we hope you got all of your pranks out of your system yesterday, because we have some very serious news.
As part of his passion for Philadelphia and his lifelong yearning to be a mascot, we can finally, exclusively reveal that the man inside the Philly Flyer’s Gritty costume has been Technical.ly’s own CEO, Christopher Wink, all along.
“Nothing brings me greater joy than to feel the soft caress of Gritty’s feathery orange fur against my skin as I skate with abandon across the icy utopia inside the Wells Fargo Center,” said Wink. “The honor of looking out at the city I love through Gritty’s big, beautiful bug eyes is all mine.”
OK fine, so we had one more prank in our system. Chris Wink is not Gritty. Regardless, to us he’ll always be the big, beautiful mascot skating through the halls and hearts of Technical.ly.
Alright, enough with the nonsense. Back to business! Let’s check out the jobs this week!
TWIJ had a baby! Not a prank. While we will continue to publish TWIJ for Philly and Delaware jobseekers as usual, we will now be offering an additional jobs newsletter specifically for our friends in DC, Maryland and Virginia called TWIJ DMV! If you’re still interested in opportunities in Philly/Delaware, you’re in the right place. If you’d also like to subscribe to TWIJ DMV, click here for the localized experience!
You know how frustrating it is when you only overhear one side of a juicy conversation and you’re dying to know what the person on the other end of the line was saying? Now you can. Introducing our new editorial series 1on1 in which two technologists interview each other about programming languages, professional development, team workflows, technical challenges and more. It’s a chance to learn what your peers are doing and thinking as they navigate their way through their technical careers.
And finally, Comcast Labs Connect is kicking off its annual conference series with its first event: Security by the Schuylkill on April 16. Buckle up for some groundbreaking conversation on innovative data security and privacy issues, led by keynote speaker Christin McMeley.
