Huntsville makes top ten in Tech Town study

Huntsville is among the nation’s top 10 destinations for tech jobs, according to a new survey.

CompTIA, an information technology association and provider of IT certifications, places Huntsville 10th among the nation’s “Tech Towns.”

This is based on data on tech job openings, median salaries and cost of living.

The ranking was based on job posting data from Aug. 2017 to July of this year among metropolitan areas greater than 250,000, where demand for tech jobs is the greatest. The cities' rankings were also based according to cost of living, the number of open IT positions and projected job growth over the next year, and the next five years.

Huntsville was one of several Southern cities making the list, including Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C., Austin and Dallas, Texas, and Atlanta. Some of those high rankings were due to cost of living. San Jose and San Francisco, Calif., part of Silicon Valley, checked in at Nos. 4 and 5, due to high housing costs.


It's a nice area for now...I've been here all my life...The sad thing is that people move here for the affordability and small town feel...and that is going away...
