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.

And if you’re in the “Fall is elite” camp, we hear you, and it will be the season of sweaters and spooky nights before you know it. Rain or shine, snow or not, TWIJ will be here with the latest on tech happenings and job openings.
