As WRAL TechWire reported last week, the new norm of remote work has led many outside companies to flock to the Triangle searching for a highly-skilled tech workforce. At the same time, the region’s existing startups are boosting the size of their workforce to meet the increased market demand for tech-enabled services.
Recognizing the heightened demand for tech talent across the Triangle area, WRAL TechWire is introducing a new weekly feature to keep our readers posted on local job and internship opportunities.
Every Monday, we will round up the latest information from the region’s top job boards, offering a breakdown of how many jobs are posted, which companies are hiring and for what positions.
We’ve also included upcoming job fairs, student-centric resources from local colleges and universities, and a list of Twitter accounts that track local job openings.
