March 2012: Fastest-Growing Cities for Technology Jobs

(March 12, 2012) - Revived or suppressed. Fits and starts. Urgent or measured. These are terms that have described the tech job market since the beginning of 2010. Today, after two years of continuous improvement in recruitment activity on Dice, tech is a market-by-market story.

March Dice Report Graph

There are certainly many available tech jobs in traditional centers like Silicon Valley, New York or Seattle. But, other cities continue to join the party - creating interesting opportunities for tech professionals in other regions.

The fastest-growing cities for tech jobs are as varied as their geographic locations. In Houston, tech job postings on Dice (+37% yr/yr) are flattered by the oil and gas industry's strength. Compare that to Portland (#6) - often called the “Greenest City” - where the emergence of cloud and virtualization jobs are contributing to its current growth.

Here are other highlights from the top 10:
  • Their college basketball team isn't ranked number one, but Raleigh tops our list of fastest growing cities for tech jobs. With more than 1,100 opportunities on any given day (+50% yr/yr), tech professionals in Raleigh enjoy a broad base of possibilities, including current openings at banks and nearby universities.


  • From north to south, California has more to offer tech professionals than just Silicon Valley. In Sacramento, firms in healthcare and technology are hiring and tech paychecks have jumped six percent yr/yr to $87,000 on average. In San Diego, tech salaries average more than $85,000 annually, while defense and aerospace companies are recruiting.


  • Not to be outdone, Missouri also has two cities on the list. Kansas City-based tech professionals can expect to take home more than $75,000 a year (+13% yr/yr) and job opportunities can be found at financial services and legal firms. In St. Louis, where manufacturing and healthcare companies are looking for tech talent, yearly tech salaries hover around $71,000.


  • The only top 10 tech market to also make the fastest growing city list - Boston - with more than 3,300 job postings on Dice, up 24 percent year/year.
    Annual tech salaries increased two percent to more than $88,000 on average.

It's important for tech professionals to remember with growing opportunities comes expanding options - if you're willing to be flexible about where you live. Consider going for that promotion, asking for a raise or changing it up and finding that new opportunity.
