In what should come as little surprise, San Jose was ranked as the top metro in the US for tech jobs. NerdWallet took a look at the largest 370 metro areas and analyzed the number of tech jobs for every 1,000 employees in the metro, the annual mean salary, and the median cost-of-living. Despite astronomical housing costs, San Jose took 1st place by a mile.
San Jose had far and away the greatest number of tech jobs per 1,000 employees (126.27) as well as the largest average tech salary in the country ($130k). San Francisco--despite including tech-heavy San Mateo and Redwood City--only managed 6th place. New York came in 67th.
