Careers Tee

Our careers website plays with the idea that we're not what you'd expect. To prove it, we're giving you the chance to pick your own "unexpected" job title.

Start thinking now... will you be a Fixologist, an Envisioneer, a Guardian or a Relationship Guru? If you’d like a tee, simply send an email to and let us know your preferred job title and size (S, M, L, XL). You can also pick up a tee at the 8th floor reception desk at Port headquarters after you start your new position.

When you receive your tee, we hope you'll wear it while out and about as a Port ambassador, inspiring curiosity, questions and conversations about what it's like to be a member of our team.

Your First Day

Most employees will report to our Port HQ on their first day of work. Please refer to your offer letter to confirm your first day reporting destination; the tabs below cover our four main locations.

Getting to Port HQ

To get here, just head to the Portland International Airport - PDX, as we call it - and follow signs to park in the long-term parking garage. From there, look for "Port Offices" signage in the northeast corner of the garage, furthest from the terminal. Take the parking garage elevator to the first floor lobby, hop out, head around the corner and take the headquarters building elevator to the eighth floor reception desk. Voila - you made it!

P.S. We've got you covered with free parking on your first day. Be sure to bring your ticket stub for validation!
