Come join us for the unveiling of the TechTown Portland video! This short video highlights 11 of the region's firms. We know Portland is a great place to live, but it’s become a Mecca for Tech and we think others outside Portland should know too. Our firms are growing with the best and brightest in Portland and they are doing quite well. But more talent is needed to support our companies that have developed technologies used the world over. Our artisanal culture extends from arts & crafts, breweries & food to creating what’s next in tech.

This video came together because the video sponsors understand a collective effort to attract more talent to the region benefits everyone.

Appetizers and drinks begin in the lobby at 5:30 and will continue until 8:00 courtesy of Jive Software. All attendees will receive one complementary drink ticket. So arrive early and stay after your showing concludes to mingle with co-workers and others in the industry.

Junior Tech Talent + Startup Hiring Event
WeWork - Custom House

This is a FREE event. This is not your typical job fair. No booths, no resumes, just personal connections with like-minded people. Each company has one-minute to pitch to job seekers (who you are and what you're hiring for) Each candidate has one-minute to pitch to companies (who you are, what you're excited to bring to the table, what you're hoping to get out of your next role, why companies should hire you)

We will have a lineup of vetted talent consisting of junior developers and college students with technical and non-technical backgrounds. Candidates are seeking internships/apprenticeships, project-based work and entry-level positions. Companies consist of startups and emerging and high-growth tech companies.

The format for this event was designed with a few things in mind: minimized risk, cost, and time for the founder; pre-vetted, talented folks who were prepared and ready to pitch to companies; a safe, fun environment for job seekers to learn about the startup community and learn what it takes to be a sought after employee.
