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.

Let’s get virtual, virtual.

The Emmys may be over, but the 10th annual — and first-ever all-virtual — Philly Tech Week 2020 presented by Comcast has just arrived on the red carpet. It’s truly a who’s who of the tech industry out here this week, people — and they’re serving us looks and innovation.

One thing is for sure: Fleece hoodies are officially back. And it looks like the Apple Watch Series 6 may be tracking just about everyone’s oxygen levels these days — you can almost taste the wrist rainbow up in these virtual panels. Incredible stuff.

As the week goes on, prepare to be dazzled by impeccably designed Zoom backdrops, star-studded talks and conferences, and exclusive access to exciting networking opportunities you will only find here at PTW20.

Back to you, Ryan Seacrest.

The News

We know you aren’t here for the bad jokes. You’re here for the jobs. The bad jokes just happen to be a surprisingly delightful bonus … right?

… Right, everyone?

To maximize your virtual PTW20 experience — and avoid missing your favorite speaker or chance to connect with your tech shop of choice — take a scroll through these links featuring conference schedules, speakers and companies looking to hire.

The Jobs

We’ve given you a lot to digest already, so we’ll serve up these jobs in fast-absorbing liquid form. In other words, no funny business.

Remote jobs. Minimal funny business.

  • Double hitter. SmartLogic is hiring a remote Product Designer AND a Developer – Ruby on Rails.
  • Agilis Chemicals sounds like a fun start to a magic spell, but is involved in no such activities. It is, however, looking for a Remote Senior Software Engineer with 5+ years experience.
  • Sparrow Vision is looking for a Remote IOS Developer. Are sparrows known for having superior vision? If so, it shouldn’t be looking for long.
    • Follow up — we Googled, and it does indeed appear that sparrows can see way better than us measly humans. Carry on.

The End

This section is called the “end” but it’s actually just the beginning. Get out there and work the heck out of this week-long virtual learning and networking event. Opportunity is knocking — so put on some pants and answer the door.
