Now that the eclipse stuff has calmed down and you’re (hopefully) no longer sitting in traffic, I thought it might be a good time to remind you about all of the awesome companies who are hiring in Portland right now.

Coming into its own: Over the past five years Portland's TechFestNW has grown into a destination tech event

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since we held the first TechFestNW. Back then, we called it the Portland Digital eXperience or PDX, and it hosted a small contingent of tech faithful at both the Leftbank and Ziba Design, late in the summer of 2012.

Looking for a nibble of food and tech? Maybe you should check out Food Bytes

One of the things about Portland that can be frustrating is that there are all of these awesome creative people. But they’re kind of stuck in these random constricted silos. That rarely crossover.
