Can you say thank you Apple, Google and Facebook among the many?
As usual I do not get stuck on the numbers or what search words were used for the survey. You can click Where The Jobs Are: The App Economy
What I always look for are the trends and no doubt here in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul the high demand (and increasing every day) for mobile developers, app developers, software engineers and web developers who can create code like this is through the roof.
Add on the designer, marketing and support jobs that are created downstream and this 466,000 number seems realistic. It could also be very low.
It for sure confirms the trend.
I would be silly if I did not say that should you be reading this and looking for a Minnesota IT job including one creating mobile apps you should contact me. This includes those who may not be looking but just want to talk about salaries, demand, the local tech community, etc
Back to the post…
Here are some nuggets from the study and below is a short clip from CNBC that aired this afternoon:
Location of App Economy Jobs by Metro Area:
1) New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island
2) San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont
3) San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara
5) Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana
9) Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta
10) Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington
11) San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos
14) Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington
18) Austin-Round Rock
20) Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Miami Beach
21) Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown
Top Ten States:
2) New York
5) New Jersey
If my math is correct… 2/3’s of the jobs are outside of Silicon Valley and New York City.
The saying, “There is an app for that” is taking on a much larger context now.
