Greater Portland is not only the region’s cultural hub, but it also occupies center stage in the state’s positive economic health as a hotbed for a number of industries — including technology, athletic and outdoor apparel, healthcare, and manufacturing. For example, Portland is often dubbed the “Silicon Forest” because of the plethora of technology companies that have chosen to make their home there and its proximity to high tech cities San Francisco and Seattle. Portland counts tech industry stalwarts Intel (its top-ranking private employer), Google and Oracle among the many top companies with operations in the metro area, along with newcomers such as eBay, Mozilla, Airbnb and Salesforce.com. In fact, tech companies offer a veritable cornucopia of employment opportunities for those relocating here, with companies that have chosen to establish operations in Greater Portland for its high quality of life, West Coast presence and relatively low cost of living compared to its neighbors. It’s for these reasons and more that Forbes ranked Portland third in its list of 200 best U.S. metropolitan areas for business and careers.

Major Industries HIGH TECH. The Portland region’s high tech industry continues to grow, with high tech employee hiring reaching a 12-year high. The software side of tech has grown almost 50 percent in just the past 10 years, with companies like Elemental, Puppet and Jama Software. The industry employed Oregonians directly across 1,700 businesses in the metro area. The state’s total industry output was $25.4 billion.

MANUFACTURING. Greater Portland is a national leader in specialized areas of manufacturing such as high tech electronics and specialty metal fabrication. Boeing has it largest machining shop within the entire company located in Gresham, OR and Precision Castparts Corp. in Milwaukie, OR is a worldwide, diversified manufacturer of complex metal components and products.

ATHLETIC AND OUTDOOR APPAREL. Greater Portland is home to the highest number of athletic apparel and outdoor recreation companies in the United States.

Education The GreatSchools Summary Rating provides an overall snapshot of school quality based on how well a school prepares all its students for postsecondary success—be it college or career. The Summary Rating calculation is based on four of the school’s themed ratings (the Test Score Rating, Student or Academic Progress Rating, College Readiness Rating, and Equity Rating) and flags for discipline and attendance disparities at a school. The ratings we display for each school can vary based on data availability or relevance to a school level (for example, high schools will have a College Readiness Rating, but elementary schools will not).*
