Maybe try Nike? I know the guys who work there, no matter what they're doing, all seem to like it a lot. I have a real good buddy who works there in some type of web design/systems admin whatever position and really likes it for the most part. (I drive a truck for a living, so don't know anything about all that electronical stuff... )

We do have quite a bit of high tech sprouting all over the place and it seems to be growing, especially Intel and its suppliers out on the west side.

Yeah, might want to try Benton (Corvallis) or Washington Counties (Beaverton/Hillsboro) first. There are several high-tech and/or other healthy companies in each county, and many of them are hiring. Both of these counties are also ranked #1 and #2 in Oregon right now in terms of employment rates.

The Columbia River Gorge area has also been sprouting several tech companies in recent years. That's the type of area that is wonderful to live in if you can find a decent-paying job. Sagetech and Google both have several job openings right now that sound right up your ally. (Google is THE #1 ranked employer in all of America! Sweet jobs if you can get 'em.) You can find other tech jobs too by looking at The Gorge Technology Alliance's jobs page.

Best of luck.

Google's second largest campus is in The Dalles

InSitu (subsidiary of Boeing, makes surveillance drones) is in the western Gorge (Hood River, White Salmon/Bingen)

Any info?


It's (somewhat) offset by no sales tax.
