Creating an inclusive culture has been a fundamental company mission since Jama was founded. We believe that diversity and fairness is not only the right thing to do, but also essential for Jama’s ongoing success. We have created a strong foundation and look forward to building on it from here. We know that as we scale, building a diverse team will bring the depth of experiences and expertise that will fuel our growth.

Earlier this year, Jama joined in conversations with partners from the TechTown Portland collaboration and the Portland Development Commission about challenges we collectively face with recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. We are confident that by approaching this as a community, we will all make a significant difference within our organization and to the region’s economy. Jama is proud to be participating in this effort and to see such enthusiasm from the community.

Jama is continuing to hire for positions across the company. Here are some of the key roles we will be filling this year:

Engineering Management: You are a pro in scaling organizations both technically and leading people.
