New industry careers portal connects talent with opportunity in organic, printable & flexible electronics

OTTAWA—September 29, 2015—The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association (www.cpeia-acei.ca) is giving industry talent, employers and potential end users of products and applications enabled with organic, printable and flexible electronics (OPE) a new way to connect with OPE-Careers.com.

“OPE-Careers.com is more than just a job site,” said Peter Kallai, President and CEO of the CPEIA. “It’s a specialized networking portal to attract great talent to work on new cutting edge technologies and help organizations interested in PE find the employees they need to engage in research, development and commercialization.”

OPE is a multibillion-dollar global growth industry that’s making ordinary objects smart in diverse market verticals such as intelligent buildings, flexible lighting, energy harvesting, intelligent packaging and wearables.

OPE-Careers.com will help organizations across Canada and anywhere in the world build a great team for OPE, and offer registered jobseekers job alerts to help them take advantage of new opportunities. Employers and job seekers can connect more effectively without getting lost on a big generic jobsites that lack industry focus. For employers, rates are competitive, if not better, than with those generic job sites.

“What truly distinguishes OPE-Careers.com is the industry focus and emphasis on attracting talent that can drive the development and commercialization of new products and applications across key industry verticals, such as packaging, building automation and health,” said Paul Smith, Chair of the CPEIA’s Board and Vice-President and Centre Manager for the Xerox Research Centre of Canada. “Investing in talent is a priority at Xerox to capitalize on market opportunities for new PE technologies. OPE-Careers.com is the kind of specialized service the industry needs.”
