You might have seen Bend’s Matthew Gregory pitch his idea for a blockchain-based startup that creates a registry for IoT devices during the runup to the Bend Venture Conference.

If you plan on job hunting in 2018, it looks like there will be a slew of tech openings. The Technology Association of Oregon put out a survey last month to area tech employers, asking about their hiring plans.

We’ve had a minor avalanche of job postings here at StartupBend. First off, everyone is ALRIGHT. No one was crushed under the pile up of really great openings right here in Bend, Oregon. Now it’s like a beautiful powder day. The jobs board is basically two-feet of seriously quality openings and you and your friends need to shred through them. Still on the fence? Don’t take my word for it. Instead take this quiz to discover whether you should apply.
Remember that one time that you heard about a job opening–only to discover the company had already filled it? There have been some great postings in the last two weeks that you would certainly be sad not to know about. Soooooo sad.
