Summer is hitting its stride, which means one thing: Broadercasting must be upon us! Next week marks the fourth annual (!) event, as our region’s broadcast and video technology professionals come together to enjoy an evening of networking and entertainment. As always, Broadercasting provides an excellent opportunity for those in the video industry to learn from one another and gain perspective on the full scope of video production and distribution technology in the Pacific Northwest.

In Portland today, it’s sunny, the trees are green and the tech scene is thriving. Elemental is always actively hiring for a number of positions and looking for ways to get the word out about available opportunities and the benefits of living in Portland, Oregon. What started as a simple idea to create a video showcasing career opportunities in the region’s growing tech cluster was immediately embraced by the local startup community. The result: a collaborative effort and glossy look inside eleven Portland tech firms that communicates not only what they do, but captures the unique attraction and culture of each workplace. Enjoy a fly-through of some of the Rose City’s coolest tech offices.
The growing companies highlighted in the video are (in order of appearance): Viewpoint, Jama Software, Simple, Thetus, Urban Airship, Acquia, Elemental, Act-On, Puppet Labs, The Clymb and Jive. Support from Business Oregon, the Portland Development Commission and the Technology Association of Oregon made this project both possible and successful.
With more than 10,000 views to date, the Tech Town Portland video caught the attention of Bloomberg Businessweek, which published its take on the piece yesterday: In Portland, Startups Work Together to Recruit Engineers. Geekwire wants to see a video produced in a similar vein for Seattle. The message – startup companies in Portland are looking to recruit world-class people and believe the region holds tremendous allure and livability advantages for those seeking to start, advance or change their careers in tech.
