The tech hiring scene is hot in Philly.
And while — like Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast as a whole — is not a jobs fair, there will be plenty of opportunities to find your next gig at Technical.ly’s Dev Conference, which is taking over the Drexel University LeBow College of Business on Wednesday, May 8.
Expect three rooms of programming, each with a specific industry focus. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from Philly CTOs, programmers and luminaries from local tech orgs that are making an impact on the city. Dev Conference is a great way for technology pros to network with their peers as well as the hone their technical skills.
We think of Dev Conference mainly as an opportunity for leaders to educate, companies to show off their culture and products, and technologists to build connections within their community. Nevertheless, we would be remiss to not highlight open positions for the companies attending:
