Here’s to getting what you need just in time, especially if it’s on the job hunt.

If that sounds good to you — especially the company’s strong emphasis on supporting employees — checkout the openings at cloudtamer.io below.
We won’t tell you how we built Technical.ly’s 10th annual Philly Tech Week (trust us, the details are painfully boring), but know that Guy Raz, host of NPR’s smash hit “How I Built This” and, previously, the TED Radio Hour, will be the keynote speaker at Introduced by Technical.ly on Sept. 25, our daylong conference focused on ideas for building better workplaces. Tickets are $100, and the first 300 registrations will get a signed copy of Raz’s brand-new book shipped to their doorsteps.

McDonald, the man pulled from Lake George, is apparently a substance abuse counselor and in recovery. “I’ve been sober for seven years,” he told NBC, “and I get saved by a tiki bar.”
