Career Day at AWS Elemental

December 12, 2019 | 8:45 am - 12:00 pm

Dream of having a career in the vibrant tech industry? Come visit AWS Elemental!

Career Day Information

Visit the offices of one of the city's leading software companies with the nonprofit Portland Workforce Alliance! This company was co-founded by a former Oregon student and purchased by Amazon.

    • This local office is focused on video processing, storage, and monetization – but if that’s a mystery to you, all the more reason to join Career Day.
    • You’ll meet Amazonians from departments as varied as marketing and finance and engineering.
    • Learn about how artists and musicians can make wonderful software designers.
    • Plus, learn hands-on how video compression works (yes, it’s a lot like Silicon Valley on HBO).
    • Meet some of the women and men of Elemental and hear their career stories!
