Where Is The Next Silicon Valley?

Tech development hubs seem to be springing up all over the place and businesses and candidates gravitate towards locations that are most cost friendly. Where will the next great tech development hub be?

 

Wanted Analytics brings us some hints:

 

While researching hiring news, we continue to see different regions of the US claiming to be the “next Silicon Valley.” A recent article on tech hiring hot spots sheds light on which tech regions really have the most IT jobs. We investigated hiring demand in these areas and included the most advertised IT skills demanded in each region below.

 

1. Silicon Valley (Northern California)- Oracle
– Software Development
– Linux
– Structured Query Language (SQL)
– JavaScript (JS) 
4. FL High Tech Corridor (Central Florida)- Structured Query Language (SQL)
– Project Management
– Software Development
– Oracle Java
– Microsoft SQL Server (MS SQL) 
2. Silicon Alley (New York City Area)- Structured Query Language (SQL)
– Project Management
– Oracle Java
– Software Development
– JavaScript (JS) 
5. Silicon Beach (Southern California)- Structured Query Language (SQL)
– Project Management
– Oracle Java
– Software Development
– JavaScript (JS) 
3. Dulles Tech Corridor (Northeast Virginia)- Structured Query Language (SQL)
– Software Development
– Oracle Java
– Linux
– Project Management

 

In each location, except the Silicon Valley, Java Developer is the most advertised job title. In Silicon Valley the most advertised job title is Software Engineer. The Silicon Valley is also the only area where Structured Query Language (SQL) isn’t the most advertised skill for IT jobs. Otherwise, most of the advertised skills in each “hot” tech area are mostly the same, just varying in order of demand. Interestingly, New York and Southern California match in terms of each 5 most demanded skills and their ranking. However, New York has more job ads posted online, just under 20,000, which is almost twice the amount of hiring demand in Los Angeles. Below, you can see the heat map of job ad volume throughout the US. The Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley are the darkest sections on the map. This indicates highest job volumes.
