Taptu times two: Sponsoring Beer and Blog and an iPhone focus group

And this Friday, we’ll have even more of a connection to Taptu. You see, they’re going to be hosting a focus group in which you might interested. Better yet? They’re going to buy you a beer at Beer and Blog.

While Taptu—makers of some impressive search functionality for the iPhone platform—may be headquartered across the big pond, their community manager, Jason Harris, lives right here in the Silicon Forest. So we’ve got a connection—I mean, besides that prevailing Portland love of all things iPhone.

Silicon Forest hires: Paydici pockets Stearns, Taptu finds Harris

I heart job offersI’m a little late to the party, but a couple of really nice, talented folks scored some piping hot new jobs. So I thought I’d share the good news—even if I’m tardy in doing so.

I was going to wait for a third. But I’m antsy, so here you go.

Bryan Stearns has joined Portland-based Paydici as Software Architect. According to ReadWriteWeb’s ReadWriteHire:

Stearns is also currently a Software Architect Contractor at the Public Library of Science and a Principal at The Thomas Eliot Company (a Sole Proprietorship). Previously he was a Software Engineer at Open Source Applications Foundation and a Senior Software Engineer at Microsoft. Earlier in his career he was a Senior Engineer at Apple.

Jason Harris has signed on, part time, as a community manager for Taptu, a UK-based mobile search engine. According to the Taptu blog:

The Taptu team is growing quickly to support our growth as a business; we now officially have a new team member to our US team. You’ll be reading much more from Jason in the near future, as he covers the perspective of a mobile guy in the American market. Join me in welcoming him to the team!

Congrats to both of them on the new gigs!
