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.”). 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.
Act your age (re: things not to do)
Hey there, friends!
It’s your weekly job hunting pal here (or nag, depending on your feelings about finding a new job), reminding you to stop whatever you’re doing right now, refresh your coffee or grab a Fla-Vor Ice Pop (depending on how much you’d rather be a kid right now) and take a looksie at this week’s hottest tech jobs on the market.
Awww shoot, why did we bring up ice pops? Now we’re gonna need to go Slip ‘N Slide-ing.
The Philadelphia Inquirer is on the brink of a digital transformation and it’s on the hunt for technologists who are ready for an adventure. Not like a safari or a hiking adventure. More of an indoor, seated, digital adventure where you can create newsroom technology, platforms and products from scratch, and bring a legacy industry into the future. So, a mental adventure where you get to work comfortably in an air-conditioned environment. The best kind, really.
We’ve waited for a story like this since the 1993 classic, “The Sandlot.” And if you aren’t familiar with that good clean fun tale about a ragtag team of neighborhood kids that become baseball buddies, we will feel old. So just don’t tell us. Anyways, LeagueSide — a four-year-old adtech platform that helps youth sports leagues get regional and national sponsorships — has raised over $1.5 million so far and plans to hire eight more team members by the end of the year. Sure sounds like a home run for technologists who like sports! (Sorry.) Here’s the link to its career page.

Well pals, that’s it for this week. If you make it to Friday unscathed, be sure to treat yourselves to something the kid in you really wants. Like a root beer float. Or a Super Soaker. Or maybe just a nap. Yep, there it is … that’s the ticket.
See you next week!-30-
