Looking for an IT job? Want to part of Detroit’s high-tech future? Check out Techweek


Qstride is making sure Detroit plays a part in the technologically minded future countless sci-fi stories have promised. To do that it needs IT pros.

So for the second year it is sponsoring Techweek as part of an in-city expansion strategy to aggressively hire dozens of Information Technology professionals in 2015.   Qstride needs software engineers, data analysts, business intelligence professionals, account managers and senior executives as the company continues to position for growth. Yesterday was not fast enough to find these people.

“As a result of our Techweek Detroit sponsorship last year, we were able to hire multiple technologists, ranging from a SQL data developer, a .NET programmer, a JAVA engineer and a marketing manager,” said Qstride Account Executive Jason Chapman. “We also met two brand new clients in the entrepreneurial space. I sincerely doubt anyone walked away from Techweek Detroit with a more healthy return on investment than Qstride and we are looking to repeat that success in 2015.”

The weeklong event, which celebrates tech in all its forms and brings together leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, will be held at Ford Field April 13-19.  The goal of it is to bring together people from all the areas touching the tech world … the leaders, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists. You can find Qstride at the Techweek Hiring Fair Friday, April 17 from noon – 5 p.m.”

Qstride CEO Shane Gianino was selected as Techweek Executive Board members and will act as a “technology ambassador” who connects entrepreneurs, small business owners, investors and companies with Techweek and its growing network of venture capital and mentor in Detroit.

“Techweek Detroit has a significant impact on our local community here in Detroit and the State of Michigan,” he said.  “Technology industry growth impacts housing values, creates a profitable environment for real estate investment and job creation.

“As Detroit continues to strengthen itself as an urban core tech hub, competing with rivals such as Silicon Valley, Seattle, Austin, Chicago, etc., Techweek Detroit plays a more vital role in assisting the small businesses and entrepreneurs and helping Michigan become a top ten tech state.”

It is expected that 35,000 programmers, developers, designers, marketers, engineers, venture capitalists, angel investors, students and technology enthusiasts will be in attendance this year.

The talent pool in the Motor City is only the beginning. After that Techweek will pick up stakes and visit Chicago, Miami, New York, Los Angles and Kansas City to grow its prospects.

Looks to me like Detroit is playing a big role in making Michigan a top 10 tech state and in reating a high-tech future like the one found in the pages of Isaac Asimov’s tales.
