The pool of tech talent in Los Angeles is growing rapidly. According to a new report from CBRE, Los Angeles is one of the top tech talent markets nationally and the third largest tech talent market on the West Coast, behind only Seattle and San Francisco. Since the last tech talent survey, Los Angeles moved up three places from 26th to 23rd on the list of the largest tech talent markets in the country.

“The two main factors driving tech talent growth in Los Angeles are interrelated—demand from tech employers seeking to tap into the talent-rich environment in Southern California and the high level of new talent supply being developed by regional universities,” Colin Yasukochi, director of research and analysis at CBRE, tells GlobeSt.com. “This is particularly evident for tech employers expanding their Hollywood-produced original content for video streaming. Los Angeles had nearly 42,000 tech degree graduates over the past five years and only 20,000 new tech jobs, a deficit of 22,000.”
