Buzz from the Week: Nov 17th – Nov 23rd

Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday.  No pressure with gifts... just a time to be with family and friends... and enjoy a great holiday filled with fun, food, beverages, & football.  I am very thankful for my health, my wife and kids, my dad (who recovered from a stroke earlier this year), my family & friends, my coworkers, all of our readers & supporters, and the thriving tech economy in the Boston area!!! 

BIZZpage Updates:

  • New BIZZpage to check out:  Percussion Software in Woburn.  Their web content management system is an award winning product used by SMBs and enterprise scale customers.  They have 5 job openings listed.  Link
  • Rue La La is entering a new phase of growth in their Technology division and they need to hire several engineers.  To help find these talented folks, they are offering a $5,000 referral fee to anyone who refers an engineer and works at the company for more than 90 days.  Send all referrals to techreferrals@ruelala.com.   
  • Vistaprint rolled out a new brand for their parent company.  The umbrella organization is now called Cimpress.  The Vistaprint name will still be their consumer brand in North America.  They are also hiring several engineers as they are investing hundreds of millions of dollars to update their online interface and back-end systems.
  • We have a new LinkedIn page where you can follow many of the job openings from our BIZZpages.  Link

Other highlights:

Here's a random tip for you this week.  Did you know that some email clients (like Gmail) cut this email off?  Since this email is rather long, it usually gets cut off around the Deals section.  You will see a link that says "View entire message" - so, you will need to click on this link to see the whole email.

Have a very safe & Happy Thanksgiving!

Best, Keith
