Minneapolis among nation’s top metros for total tech job growth, #3 in Midwest

Brookings recently analyzed job creation in four key digital services industries: software publishing, data processing and hosting, computer systems design, and web publishing/search. While tech employment is growing all over America, the industry is beginning to polarize between metros. 

The largest share of growth has been traditionally concentrated within the nation’s densest tech hubs, primarily the Bay Area and New York City. Yet far from the coasts lie exciting hot spots in the Midwest, Minneapolis - St. Paul included. Our market added 3,600 tech jobs between 2013 and 2015, and that number will only increase amidst local expansions and the attraction of new-to-market subsidiaries. Looking forward, growth in digital industries will accelerate in select metros like ours that already have a substantial tech employment growth rate to begin with.
