Job offers in technology are also developing elsewhere. But they are growing faster in Silicon Valley and other established technology hubs, according to the study, highlighting the appeal of these regions.
"Technology tends to be where technology has always been," says Jed Kolko, chief economist of Indeed. "Even though technology is evolving rapidly, the geography of technology is evolving more slowly."
Indeed, eight metropolitan areas with at least one million inhabitants, where technology jobs account for a "significant share" of the total number of ads on the company's website: Austin; Baltimore; Boston; Raleigh; San Francisco; Saint Jose; Seattle; and Washington, DC.
The overall share of technology jobs in the San Jose metropolitan area experienced the largest increase from 2017 to 2018; Austin and Boston were right behind. Seattle's share remained the same. Only Washington, DC and Baltimore, nearby, saw their number of technology jobs decline, but with Amazon's plans to create a "HQ2" in northern Virginia, this situation could soon change.
This does not mean that you have to live in a big technological center if you want to work in this sector. Large metropolitan areas such as Chicago, Los Angeles and New York often have more technology jobs than smaller cities like Austin or Raleigh, because of their size. But technology jobs account for a smaller percentage of total employment in these big cities.
The study revealed that some cities are developing technological specialties. Detroit and Pittsburgh, for example, have become hubs for autonomous vehicles. And the report notes that although Portland, Oregon, may not be able to match other counters in terms of the number of technology jobs, the types of technology jobs in the city of Rose City are very close to those in Silicon Valley, like those in San Diego.
For those who do not want to live in large meters, the report highlights several small cities where technology jobs make up a high percentage of job openings, especially in Huntsville, Alabama; Boulder, Colorado; Trenton, New Jersey; Colorado Springs, Colorado; Palm Bay, Florida; and Provo, Utah.
These smaller technology centers tend to be anchored in universities and military installations. Detroit's role as a stand-alone vehicle hub probably has a history in the auto industry, while Pittsburgh's status is linked to Carnegie Mellon University. Kolko says Indeed, the data do not present any obvious examples of communities that have managed to trap a local technology center without these well-established institutions. "It's very difficult to replicate the depth of the job market and the funding system you get in these big technology hubs," Kolko said.
Talented employers are looking for cities in which job seekers are most likely to click on technology ads, including Atlanta, Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and Los Angeles. Workers, on the other hand, cities where they get fewer clicks, such as Baltimore, Colorado Springs, Huntsville and Washington, DC.
