ZipRecruiter has a survey that combines their “Best Job Market” and “Opportunity” Indexes with info from PayScale and Zillow that gives a list of The Best 10 Cities To Startup Your Tech Job Search.

Minneapolis comes in at #1:

1. Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN

Median Tech Salary: $72,800

Median Home Price: $257,700

Number of Paychecks Needed for a Down Payment: 21

The Twin Cities shouldn’t be thought of as an icy Midwestern outpost dominated by agriculture and manufacturing jobs. In fact, the metro area ranks 12th in the nation for tech workforce participation, according to the latest CompTIA data, with nearly 10% of the all workers in the Twin Cities employed in the tech industry. Minneapolis-St. Paul boasts a diverse array of tech jobs ranging from hot startups to cutting-edge jobs in biotech. It’s also an incredibly livable city, ranking at or above the 80th percentile in our index for health, affordability, and transit.

Other cities in the Top 10:

2. Washington D.C.

3. Albany, NY

4. Omaha, NE

5. Des Moines, IA

6. Pittsburgh, PA

7. Huntsville, AL

8. St. Louis, MO

9. San Francisco, CA

10. Denver, CO

No… we, “…shouldn’t be thought of as an icy Midwestern outpost…” I agree with that. It’s interesting that most every survey mentions our winter. Seriously folks, we need to show there are additional seasons besides winter.

Regarding the survey… I’m not surprised we rank high or #1. When surveys include lifestyle things like, “…account for cost of living, transit, walkability, commute time, and even a health grade.” we are going to do well.
