It’s always neat to see our city in some positive light now and again, right?
Well this new study and statistic should help make your decision to come live, work, play and code all the more easier! It seems that Atlanta is one of the top places to get a technology job!
As they’ve shared:
Home of Southern hospitality and a thriving local music scene, Atlanta scored the number 10 spot with its 126,700 high-tech workers. Techies, on the whole, have higher salaries than non-techies—in Atlanta, that’s a 77 percent difference. Techies in the sprawling metropolis average $82,372, while their non-tech private sector counterparts average $46,481. Think of that difference as a basis for feeling superior, or as a cause for lament since your non-tech friends won’t be able to afford the restaurants your salary enables.
A nice a simple reminder why it pays (quite literally) to be here in Atlanta!
