DFW Among Top Metros in U.S. for Tech Jobs
Texas remains a big draw for tech corporations and startups alike, and Dallas-Fort Worth is among the best places in the nation for tech jobs.
Coming in at No. 3 in a ranking by CompTIA, a tech industry trade group, Dallas-Fort Worth advertised more than 156,000 IT job openings – a figure that rivals larger metro areas like New York City and Washington, D.C. DFW was only ranked below San Jose, California and Austin!
Why Dallas? According to CompTIA, the DFW metro is emerging as one of the best places for tech jobs thanks to lower operating costs and diverse tech talent. The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranks high for overall race and ethnicity characteristics within the tech workforce via a metric called Simpson’s Diversity Index.
It’s also no secret Texas has become the new magnet for tech corporations fleeing from California. In fact, the Lone Star State gained 114 of 265 California companies that relocated their headquarters between January 2018 and June 2021.
CompTIA expects tech jobs to grow in the DFW metro by 2.8 percent over the next year and by 10.5 percent over the next five years to reach nearly 203,000 jobs. The median salary for IT professionals is also impressive: $97,431.
