let's take it online

Social distancing doesn't mean social isolation! Organizations large and small are postponing and canceling in-person events as the world grapples with the COVID-19 Pandemic. While networking face to face is best, if there's anything tech-savvy groups do well, it's online collaboration.

We open this seventh issue of the Hawaii Slack newsletter with an open invitation to you to bring your team, club, meetup group or social circle into our 'ohana. We would be happy to set you and your friends up with a dedicated public or private channel where you can focus on your mission, but meanwhile interact with the broader innovation community!

While you can share our sign-up form on social media, you can use this special link with your organization to bypass the sign-up form and bring them into Hawaii Slack right away!



Open positions shared in the last month include:

▪ Events and Production Designer at Hawaii Opera Theatre
▪ Software Engineer at National Security Agency
▪ Oracle Package Consultant at IBM
▪ Lead Shopify Developer at Hidden Gears
▪ .NET Developers - Entry Level at Decision Research

Hawaii Tech Jobs

With the retirement of the HTDC's TechJobsHawaii board (RIP!), I added a simple job board to HawaiiTech.com at jobs.hawaiitech.com. Feel free to list any positions you have, and if the UI annoys you, just email me the job posting and I'll get it listed.


Hope to see you on Hawaii Slack, and out and about in the community!
