The Top 25 Cities For Tech Jobs By Volume & Growth

Austin Texas Sixth Street

Austin, Texas, ranks in the top five cities in the U.S. by volume of tech job postings, measured year over year.


Unsurprisingly, the traditional tech hub cities such as New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Atlanta have the most tech postings by volume. They’re also showing a lot of year-over-year growth, as shown in the chart below.

“San Francisco returned to the top five after dropping to #6 in our previous Tech Job Report (below Dallas), a sign that the city continues to rebound from an exceptionally tough go during the pandemic,” the report says. “Alternatively, Seattle (up 56%) dropped out of the top ten (it had previously ranked at #7), due at least in part to hiring slowdowns at Microsoft and Amazon, two of the region’s biggest employers, as well as a slackening in retail spending.”

When it comes to sheer growth, however, Orlanda is king. Tech jobs in that city rose 111% over last year, more than any other city in the country. Another Sunshine State city, Miami, marked 104% growth.

In fact, of the traditional tech hub cities, only Chicago cracked the top 25 for tech job growth.
