Meet Our City: Techtown Portland

We found this tearjerker of a video about Portland’s tech environment and we think you should watch it.

If you’ve seen the television show “Portlandia” you’ve seen the side of Portland that is made up of highly educated dumpster divers, arrogant bikers, and musicians.

Depending on who you ask, it’s an apt description of our city.

But Portland has another collective persona often left out of popular culture. There’s a community of passionate creators.

Whether we’re making, hot sauce, candy, software, or websites, it’s a city of creation. People move here to be part of it, just like the six people in this video.

In fact, most of Staffing Robot moved to Portland for the good life (we’ve still got three native Oregonians though!).

Check out this video! Just don’t get to excited about Portland and move here or something.
