Albany in Money Magazine's Top Cities for Tech Jobs


Looking for a job in the tech industry? Skip looking at larger cities and keep an eye right here on the Capital City. Money Magazine released in mid-June a list of the 20 hottest cities for tech jobs now - with Albany placing in the top 5.

From the article:

Job search site ZipRecruiter recently analyzed its database of more than 8 million active jobs, and ranked the 20 fastest-growing tech markets based on year-over-year data. Job growth for engineering, software, and IT roles may be losing steam in the Bay Area, but smaller cities are picking up the slack, the company says.

"The tech industry is no longer bound to the coast," says ZipRecruiter’s Chief Economic Adviser, Cathy Barrera. "As a result, we’re seeing the tech industry expand out of the major metropolis areas, and into smaller regional cities that have since flown largely under the radar."

Albany placed at number 4 with the top tech jobs:

  • Project Manager
  • SQL Developer
  • ERP Engineer
  • Software Developer
  • Software Tester
