Ring Ding Dong

This week, dare to make your dreams as big and shiny as those Eagles’ Super Bowl Championship rings! Treat each job listing like a 10-karat white gold opportunity, lined with 219 diamonds and 17 green sapphires, that literally has your name written all over it. Go forth confidently, like a 300-pound linebacker flaunting precious baubles heavy enough to break his own hand.

You got this, sport.

The Headlines

Back in high school, “I don’t like labels” was cool-people code for “I don’t want to be exclusive.” Today, it saves businesses. Starting next month, Google Chrome will slap a “Not Secure” label on any site that isn’t using HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure). But fear not, South Jersey-based marketing agency Orpical Group is swooping in to help businesses beat the deadline and migrate securely to HTTPS. Not all heroes wear capes, guys. Some wear — well we don’t know what they wear, they don’t have many pictures online. Find out when you go in for an interview and report back.

Bainbridge Health has confirmed the fears that nearly every medical drama on earth has surgically implanted into our imaginations: medical errors are not just last-resort plot points for shows that have been on too long; they actually are a leading cause of death. The CHOP spinout just raised an additional $1.6 million to continue developing its data-based, medical error–reducing platform, and are looking to hire health techies interested in doing the same.

There’s real estate, and then there’s “Real” estate. Linode has finally moved into its new digs in Old City, previously home to the cast of Philadelphia’s “The Real World” on MTV. The 15,000-square-foot, neoclassical building set the cloud-hosting company back a cool $5 mil. But after a bumpy two-year renovation period, CEO Chris Aker was all smiles as he finally welcomed his 150 employees (and growing) into, undeniably, the coolest new office in Philly.

The Jobs

UX/design folks, today is your very own Philly Special:

  • Visit Philadelphia is hiring a Website UX Specialist to guarantee a dynamite experience across their sites and
  • Fintech startup Perpay is looking for a Product Designer who can bring creative UI/UX ideas to the table, and who likes dogs and the Jackson 5. Mostly the first part, though. Don’t go in if you only like dogs and the Jackson 5.
  • Digital shop The Message Agency wants a UX Designer to serve its nonprofit, university and foundation clients. As a B Corporation, it’s been awarded the status “Best for the World” three times. Guess they took Melania’s advice!
  • Ecommerce site ShopRunner is looking for a Lead Product Designer to join it’s Experience Design Team and give Amazon a run for its money.

Dwight Shrute’s dream job:

  • The Director of Alliances at Stitch reports directly to the CEO to develop a partnership strategy from the ground up. Would Dwight kill for this job? Absolutely he would.

The Rest

Remember, if the Eagles can carry those epically oversized rings on their fingers every day, you can carry your equally grand career hopes and dreams in your hearts. Visit us next week, share this resource with friends and stay up to date on daily job listings here. Happy job hunting!
