St. Louis, Missouri, has been ranked among the six hot emerging tech hubs for IT job seekers by CIO. The city came in at number two on the list.
The article highlights rising tech salaries in St. Louis, as well as industry leaders in the region such as Boeing, IBM, Wells Fargo, Edward Jones and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, all of which are seeking IT workers in large volumes to fill their ranks. The article also highlighted the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency’s decision to expand with its new western HQ in the city as a prime factor in St. Louis’ position as a growing tech hub.
This prowess was on full display earlier this summer when Accenture Federal Services announced plans to expand with a new Advanced Technology Center in St. Louis that will bring up to 1,400 jobs to the area in the next five years.
“The region’s skilled talent, vibrant technology ecosystem and strong commitment to collaboration between government, civic, business, academic and community partners made St. Louis the ideal location for our new Advanced Technology Center,” said AFS CEO John Goodman. “By expanding our operations in this area, we will provide our people and new hires a great place to live and do work that matters.”
