Tech jobs are growing in the Phoenix market. According to the Scoring Tech Talent report from CBRE, the Phoenix market ranked 15th in the nation for tech jobs, moving up two spots from the previous report. In the last five years, the market has added 12,650 new tech jobs, and has a total tech labor pool of 83,930. That is 4% of the market’s total employment. By comparison, the tech labor pool nationally makes up 3.5% of total employment.

“Tech companies are attracted to Phoenix because of the metro’s abundance of tech talent and the affordability of this talent,” Kevin Calihan, EVP at CBRE, tells GlobeSt.com. “Moving up two spots from last year is indicative of the impressive growth metro Phoenix’s tech sector has experienced over recent years. All signs point to continued growth in the tech industry.”
