Anyone who has driven down SE Grand Avenue in Portland has probably noticed the sign on the bSIDE6 building at Burnside that features three images of a woman wearing glasses, accompanied simply by the word "Emma," and wondered what goes on in that building.
CEO and Co-Founder Clint Smith said the company chose Portland for the reasons any company chooses it: they looked at where their customers were, where there was a sense of community that large cities like Los Angeles lacked, and most importantly, where employees would want to hang out. "Portland just fits our vibe," Smith said.
Some of the companies Emma works with locally are Ponzi Vineyards, YMCA & YWCA, Sisters of the Road, Schoolhouse Electric, Willamette Week, and Beast.
The most promising aspect about Emma is that they are hiring. The exact number of hires is "open-ended," but they are "very committed to growing," especially looking for technology platform developers and sales and business development people.
