Annually an in-person affair,’s NET/WORK 2021 tech jobs fair will take place virtually on Thursday, March 18. We’re including all the communities we report on daily — and remote-only jobs too.

Better yet, as part of going all-virtual, the region’s largest annual tech jobs fair this year is free, and will let you snoop on companies throughout the region (not just your home city).

At NET/WORK, corporate teams, growth-stage companies and startups will be hiring for plenty of technical roles — in engineering, development, design and data science. You’ll also find openings in sales, marketing, product and operations. The commonality is the type of companies: those thinking about workplace culture and hiring a kind of professional who might read

You’ll have a chance to engage with 30+ companies hiring for over 200 roles available, all from the comfort of your home. The hiring companies specialize in the likes of ecommerce, big data, gaming, sports betting, software development, retail, marketing and sales. We have confirmed some of the biggest tech teams you already know such as Comcast (Philadelphia), Axios (D.C.) and CareFirst (Maryland), as well as growth-stage companies like Crossbeam (Philadelphia), Ordway (D.C.) and SmartLogic (Baltimore).

NET/WORK 2021, to be held on Thursday, March 18, will feature location-specific job openings as well as remote work opportunities. Exhibiting companies will be sourcing for positions that take on a variety of workplace formats: in-office, remote-first and remote-friendly.
