10up + WordPress + Portland = Awesome

At 10up, meaningful community engagement is part of our DNA… and so is Portland. Just last year, 10up sponsored four WordCamps, and team 10up employees have spoken at over a dozen WordCamps around the country, from Seattle, to San Diego, to Miami, to New York.

10up is a premium, distributed agency, that serves customers ranging from small businesses to international publishing giants like TechCrunch, to cable networks like NBC Universal Sports. We have full time, salaried employees around the country, having found amazing talent in places like Boston, the New York City metro area, Washington DC, Sacramento California, Miami Florida, and Birmingham Alabama. But the closest thing we have to a home – our center of gravity – is Portland, Oregon.

Three of our fourteen talented team members – Zack, Taylor, and Jeremy – are proud to call Portland home. And if you call Portland home, you’ve probably seen them around; they’re active members of Portland’s WordPress meet up, and have spoken at local events like WebVisions. Somehow, between helping clients like Trulia and 9to5 Mac, they even found time to help organize some of this weekend’s events!

Two of our Portland contingent will be speaking this weekend. Zack and Taylor both kick off the morning with talks that demonstrate just how diverse our team’s skill set is. While Zack examines best – and worst! – practices for WordPress development, Taylor offers an in depth look at user-centric interaction design.

Of course, we get tired of hearing ourselves speak – we want to hear from you. Whether you’re an organization looking for a first class web experience, an eager developer looking for an amazing career opportunity, or just have an inspiring story to tell about WordPress, we want you to track down us down in our 10up t-shirts. In addition to our Portland contingent of three, Jake – 10up’s President – will also be roaming the floor. We’re always seeking new and exciting opportunities, and always recruiting.

Happy camping!
