Each week we put together for you a slate of news and fresh job opportunities in the ‘burgh. If you’re not already subscribed, you can do so here.
Major League Baseball is on its way back, and it’s becoming a thing for ballparks to pipe out fake cheering from the stands so players can keep communicating strategy without the other team hearing, and not be left alone with just their thoughts next to 40,000 empty seats.
Yogi Berra said the game is 90% mental, and the rest you gotta use your head — and it’s no different in the business world. If you used to get into the swing of things at work behind people chit-chatting about how miserable the Pirates’ bullpen is in the break room, the podcasting world has you covered.
And if you’re looking to make moves career-wise, TWIJ is here to cheer you on with the latest job opportunities in Pittsburgh’s tech scene and beyond.
Technical.ly has launched a new weekly series, ”Technical.ly On The Record,” that takes a deeper look at our recent coverage of the entrepreneurial landscape across the Mid-Atlantic. The pilot episode includes a discussion on Technical.ly’s recent dive into the latest of Pittsburgh’s changing innovation economy (hey, that’s us!).
InnovatePGH Executive Director Sean Luther is set to moderate a panel Wednesday on innovations to address health inequalities, part of the Liftoff PGH In Motion ongoing speaker series.
You may have heard the news that the Trump administration announced last week that hospitals would now need to submit their COVID-19 tracking data to a private firm, rather than the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)? Well that firm, TeleTracking Technologies, is based in Downtown Pittsburgh (and hiring). The firm won a $10.2 million contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to collect and analyze COVID-19 data from some 3,200 hospitals across the country.
