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; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

Do you even bake, bro?

We’re more than a year into pandemic-normal, and while the end finally seems to be in sight, we’re also getting some indications of which COVID practices will stick with us.

While Zoom drinks and sudden surges in demand for toilet paper will be out (thank goodness), the ecommerce analytics platform Profitero says hand sanitizer, bread-baking and sweatpants seem here to stay. Look, as long as I can keep saying “Arise, Loaf Vader” each time I take the latest no-knead out of the oven, that’s all good with me.

Onto the jobs:
