Today we offer up a tasty jambalaya of news and jobs announcements that have been simmering on the stove that is our email. Did I take that metaphor too far? I think that was too much. First up, some news.

We were pumped to see that Cairn is a finalist for the Oregon Entrepreneur Network annual awards in the development stage category. We’re meeting with CEO Rob Little next week and we’ll bring back an update on one of our first #50startups.

Bend has a new, membership-based technology incubator called E Space Labs, focused on advancing the high tech electronic hardware device industry. E Space will celebrate its official grand opening next month, however, it’s already offering short courses on high-tech hardware topics. In fact, Capacitors, Resistors and Diodes Oh My is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Also your October is booked. If you read our previous post, you’ve heard that Swivel (previously Webcam), the new Bend Design Conference and the Bend Venture Conference are all the second full week of October. Tell your boss that you’ll be doing some learning in Bend and come on over.

Odysys hires again. This time, the Bend tech company snagged Ben Lloyd, to lead its customer success team. Lloyd is no stranger to startups: He founded Portland-based Amplify Interactive in 2003 The company was acquired in 2013.

Hiring people? Let us know and we’ll embarrass them right here on this very blog. For free.

And not to toot our horn but ICYMI Built Oregon, a digital magazine features Oregon entrepreneurs, did a story about the blog. You can read it here.

Now jobs. TeamUnify is a newcomer to our jobs board and we’re happy to have them. This Bend-based technology company has developed a software platform used 3,500 swim teams, and the company looking for a senior product manager.

G5 is attempting to fill up our entire job board. Bring it! I’m not going to list all their openings, but you can see them here, as well as positions available at Kollective and Tech Soft 3D.

Happy three-day weekend. We’ll be back next week with more #50startups and a nice little story introducing you to the people behind Stackhouse, the coffee shop that is undoubtedly fueling a good chunk of Bend’s tech community.
