Tech Job Growth Has Spilled Over to Less Established Markets, According to CBRE’s Annual ‘Scoring Tech Talent’ Report

San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle and Toronto rank atop CBRE’s annual grading of tech centers, with Orlando and San Diego among fastest risers

For the first time, CBRE’s report includes a list of fast-growing “opportunity markets,” led by Tucson with a 90 percent increase in tech jobs over five years, Hamilton, Ont.’s 52 percent gain, Waterloo’s 40 percent gain and Las Vegas’ 35 percent gain.

Washington, D.C., and New York City – the top two regions for producing tech-degree graduates – round out the top five. CBRE’s separate list of “momentum markets” that most accelerated their tech talent employment growth is led by Orlando with a 14.1 percentage point increase in growth rate, San Diego (+10.2) and Chicago (+8.0)…
