America's Top Tech Hubs Infographic Header

The tech industry accounts for 7.1% of America’s GDP and 11.6% of its total private sector payroll. Just as it is for many other industries, though, these jobs are not spread evenly across the country. The prevailing sentiment holds that major west coast cities are the largest hubs (hello San Francisco and Seattle), but this isn’t wholly true. According to the most recent data (2015), east coast cities are home to hundreds of thousands of tech jobs, too. More surprising might be the emergence of Texas as a major hotspot, proving that tech is not only an east-west phenomenon. Check out our infographic for a more complete picture of the state of tech in America.
