ANN ARBOR – Looking for a job in tech in Ann Arbor?

This Wednesday, Spark is holding its third annual Tech Homecoming -- the ultimate networking event for those looking to get a piece of the action in Ann Arbor's vibrant tech scene.

From 4:00 - 7:00 p.m., CEOs and executives of some of Ann Arbor's fastest-growing tech companies will be mingling with prospective candidates at Fred's on 403 East Washington over drinks and appetizers. Organizers say upwards of 350 people have already registered for this year's event -- a 42 percent increase from the previous year.

Not surprisingly, the idea to originally hold the meet-and-greet was Dug Song's - co-founder and CEO of Duo Security, which recently made national headlines for raising $70 million in fourth-round funding and a new valuation just north of $1 billion.

Organizers hope to attract talented people home for the holidays back to Ann Arbor's tech scene

According to the event's website:

Our goal is to reconnect talented out-of-towners in the tech industry with Ann Arbor and its vibrant tech ecosystem, which has produced hundreds of startups and billions in enterprise value in the last 5 years.

Domino's pizza is one of the newer companies to join the roster of Tech Homecoming. Domino's recently paired up with Ford to test autonomous vehicle pizza delivery in select areas in Michigan. If you drive past the chain's Plymouth Road location, you'll likely see one of their driverless vehicles parked in the lot.

Registering for the event is free. Click here to register and upload your resume.
