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.

Summer, summer, summertime

There’s no better time to enjoy the great outdoors than summer. And yet, at the same time, there’s no stronger gravitational pull than that of the couch, where you can crank the AC and binge movies for an entire Sunday (or Tuesday, but we won’t tell if you don’t).


We’ve got a pretty blockbuster lineup of jobs for you this week, so flip on the tube, dust off that VHS of “Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead” (or, fine, stream it like a modern couch potato) and peruse our list while you shun that sun.

The News

Chariot Solutions — which would have made a killer name for those horse-drawn carriage repair shops of yore — is packed with some serious employee perks (and not of the bean bag/ping pong variety). In-house learning, paid paternity, maternity and family leave, and, as the recent recipient of The Philadelphia Inquirer’s 2019 Most Charitable Award — Volunteerism, a deep commitment to the community. Chariot could write a pretty good book on how to put people first. But don’t wait for it to come out, as we have no idea if it’s writing one. Just head here and check out it’s open job sitch (hint: devs are in demand).

If watching hours (and hours and hours) of “Law and Order” has taught us anything, it’s that lawyer-ing is demanding. But on Sept. 20, the Delaware Lawyers Assistance Program will launch a podcast called “A Lawyer’s Wellness,” to help ease the stress. Contact the org about openings (@ bottom of home page), or simply take inspiration from this creative approach toward strengthening the wellness of an industry in need.

And, if you’re interested in breaking into or making moves within the Philly startup scene, here’s a mid-year update on our 2019 realList featuring the top 10 startups ‘round town.

The Jobs

This week features some unique roles, so grab some popcorn because “the hills are alive” with the sound of cool jobs.
