VOICE Summit Offers More Than 250 High Paying Jobs Ahead of the Voice-first Technology Disruption

NEWARK, N.J. (July 17, 2018) – VOICE Summit sponsored by Amazon Alexa and other leading companies such as Microsoft, Yext and Panasonic is providing a massive recruitment opportunity for developers with leading companies like Audible, Prudential, Panasonic and Horizon Healthcare hiring in combination for more than 250 open positions for high-paying tech jobs. 

VOICE will take place July 24-26 at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). The largest voice-tech event of the year is expected to bring together more than 1,500 software developers, designers, brands, agencies and media companies focused on the next generation of applications that leverage conversational input via voice and chat.

On Thursday, July 25th,  developers will experience the excitement of speed recruiting in a fast-paced, dynamic event, taking place just prior to the rooftop closing reception. Each person will have 8 minutes at each employer's table to hear about current opportunities, what they’re looking for in the hiring process, and get 1-on-1 networking with their internal recruiters.

“The people at the cutting edge of voice technology are coming together in Newark, N.J. to discuss and plan how it will transform our world,” said Ras Baraka, Mayor of Newark.  “At the same time, VOICE is providing an invaluable opportunity to recruit Newark residents for the tech jobs of the future and for residents to learn about a technology that will shape our future. Those attending VOICE will discover an exciting city consciously transforming itself through innovation, creativity, and a commitment to social, economic and racial justice.”

Throughout the conference, developers can visit the recruiting room and hear from Audible, Prudential, Panasonic and other high-caliber companies about their employer brand, company culture, and opportunities. Companies will offer 30-45 minute sessions that will be both informative and interactive, giving a sneak peek into what it's like to work for these top brands.

“This event is a rare occasion for developers and companies to meet and engage around this fast-moving industry shift,” said Pete Erickson, founder of Modev and VOICE. “It’s going to be an amazing chance for all parties involved as we are combining vision for the industry with hands-on training and employment opportunities. Everyone in attendance is like-minded in their desire to stay ahead of the impending disruptions that voice-first technology is catalyzing.”
