Study: Austin Number Two In IT Startup Jobs

A new study of technology jobs, from pay ranking service PayScale, finds that Austin is number two in the nation for IT jobs. According to PayScale, which tracks pay and salary across the nation for different jobs, its comparison of the top 50 largest areas across the country and the salaries and IT job opportunities, ranked Austin number two, behind San Francisco. Austin beat out Seattle (number 3), Salt Lake City (number 4), and Denver (number 5) in terms of job opportunities. PayScale said that, although Austin has relatively low wages compared to cities such as Seattle and Boston, it was ranked highly due to the large availability of start-up IT jobs.
