Hi! You’re reading the Pittsburgh edition of This Week in Jobs (TWIJ), a weekly newsletter written by our team at in partnership with InnovatePGH and the Pittsburgh Innovation District. 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.

Let’s face it, we need to be entertained these days, and it’s not easy to pump out new content for TV studios while social distancing. Yet the heroes at “Supermarket Sweep” did just that, shooting episodes of the reboot last spring in order to give us joy and stocked-shelf drama in time for the fall season.

Producers found food and products when supply chains were interrupted; “Saturday Night Live” alumna Leslie Jones hosted an entire season in just 10 days. This is dedication, people. At TWIJ, we know it’s that kind of determination to succeed you want in an employer. You expect high-ticket job postings, and we have ‘em. You’ll want to throw these opportunities in your cart immediately.
