10 Best Cities for Tech Career Opportunities

If you work in Tech, you’ll know it’s one of the fastest growing industries. Digital jobs are fast becoming a necessity for strong growth and the professionals that work within this field are becoming highly sought after.  As these opportunities continue to grow – so do the cities that house them. To understand the cities we’ve looked at the companies that are already home amongst their tech district, the opportunities for start ups and the growth and employment opportunities within them.

So if you are looking to relocate, take a look at this list highlighting the 10 best cities offering tech career opportunities right now.

1. San Francisco – Silicon Valley

It goes without saying that ‘Silicon Valley’ is one of the best places for tech career opportunities. Not only does it house headquarters for 39 businesses in the fortune 100but it’s also home to thousands of start-ups. It also accounts for one-third of all of the venture capital investment in the United States. The higher salaries come with a higher cost of living and some big competition but it’s the price you pay to work in the tech capital of the world.

2. New York – Silicon Alley

The city that never sleeps has been nicknamed ‘Silicon Alley’ – not only because it’s in the centre of the finance world but also because venture capital is booming. Good news if you are a developer with skills in Java, Agile or Javascript according to a recent study by Indeed.com. These are the top three skills that employers look for in NYC. The thriving cultural scene makes NYC a top choice for expats around the world.

3. Austin – ‘Silicon Hills’

Cisco, eBay, Facebook, Google, IBM, Indeed and Intel are just a few of tech giants who have offices here. Dell’s worldwide headquarters is located in a suburb of Austin and unsurprisingly there are a whole host of start up incubators. The tech companies brought in an impressive $950 million in collective funding last year alone. Home to South by Southwest (SXSW) Austin is fast becoming a city for work and for play.

4. Yerevan – Silicon Mountains

Research shows that by 2025, the need for programmers in Armenia will have tripled to 30,000. This is largely due to the ever-increasing innovation in their tech sector. A sector that is growing at an annual rate of 20% and shows no signs of slowing down. If you haven’t previous considered a move to the country previously, it’s worth considering. Cost of living is very low, crime rates are low and culture is in abundance. Currently the main speaking languages are Armenian & Russian but the English language is becoming more and more popular.

5. Singapore – Asian city state tech hub

If you are looking to launch a start up, Singapore’s tech hub could a good choice. With the tax rates being comparatively low and immigration so common it’s a great place to get educated and attract skilled workers. Singapore’s government is also providing policies and grants to help start-up development. But it’s not just about start-ups. 80 of the top 100 tech firms in the world have a presence in Singapore. It is renowned for world-class innovation, fast modern IT Infrastructure and rigorous IP protection.

6. Melbourne – Australia’s tech city

Watch out Sydney, Melbourne’s tech scene is on the rise. The underdog has fast proven itself as a city to watch in the past few years. Melbourne is now full of central resource hubs designed to be all-inclusive to push the local tech scene forward. Good news if you are a founder of a start-up or a software engineer looking to relocate. Melbourne has the highest number of founders & software engineers who are expats.

7. London – Silicon Roundabout

London is the UK’s largest and fastest growing tech city. Programmers and Software developers are by far the most popular roles but the Silicon Roundabout is fast becoming a playground for innovators of all types. London is excelling in tech research and development and big data.

8. Stockholm – Growing North European Tech centre

If you are a programmer and are looking to move, Stockholm could be your city. Programmer is the most common job title in Stockholm. The tech capital of Northern Europe, Stockholm is home to Skype, Spotify, King (Candy Crush) and Minecraft. Over $1.4 billion was invested in Stockholm tech companies in 2016 and with the work/life balance and the family benefits in Sweden it’s enough to make anyone consider a move.

9. Bangalore – Growing Asian Hub

There are a huge population of programmers in Bangalore, largely because of the influx of IT companies who’ve set up camp in the city. It’s home to several disruptive companies such as Flipkart, BigBasket, Mu Sigma, and Ola Cabs. It also has a whole host of Accelerator and Incubator programmes. The downsides? The living conditions can be challenging and the traffic is notoriously a nightmare.

10. Toronto – growing tech scene

The growing tech scene in Toronto has received a lot of acclaim recently for its AI research and development, and its talents are continuing to grow within the tech field. Not only is Toronto now a breeding ground for innovation but it’s also one of the best cities in the world for female entrepreneurs. Over half of its inhabitants are immigrants, multiculturalism is celebrated and quality of live is good. It’s no wonder that their motto is “Diversity Our Strength”.

Introducing OutSystems 11: Running LAPs (Large Application Portfolios) at the Speed of Business

Today at the NextStep event in Boston, OutSystems CEO Paulo Rosado unveiled OutSystems 11, the newest version of the OutSystems low-code development platform.

OutSystems 11 is a transformative alternative for enterprise IT leaders who need to overcome legacy gridlock. The latest release of the industry-leading low-code development platform enables you to address entire portfolios of mobile and web apps, aging core systems, and those over-customized ERP and CRM systems that are critical to your business but are killing your productivity.

Almost two years ago, we announced OutSystems 10, a release specifically designed to help enterprises modernize by allowing for fast development and integration of mobile and web apps. By all accounts, OutSystems 10 was a huge success with our customers, partners, industry analysts, and investors.

With OutSystems 11, we have built on that success with new features and functionality designed to help IT reallocate that 70 percent of the budget that’s going to “keeping the lights on” for legacy applications and to time-consuming (read: expensive) research into dependencies every time something gets updated.

The Future of IT Starts Today

Gartner’s 2018 High Productivity Application Platform as a Service Magic Quadrant report discusses the progression of low-code. It addresses the fact that platforms like OutSystems, which was named a Leader in the report, have evolved from focusing primarily on mobile and web apps into enterprise-class platforms that can address the entire app portfolio.

Gartner wrote, “We see hpaPaaS continuing to accelerate its relevance to enterprise IT, incorporating capabilities for 70 percent to 80 percent of IT application requirements.”

OutSystems research documents how enterprises are struggling to maintain large, aging app portfolios and also how enterprises are starting to use low-code to overcome them. In the face of nimble upstarts unencumbered by deeply ingrained cultures, processes, and layers of code, enterprises are looking at ways to holistically transform their inner-workings, and OutSystems 11 is designed to do just that.

Kicking the Tires of the New OutSystems Platform

There are more new features and tweaks to the previous platform than we can detail here, but there are five key benefits that set OutSystems 11 apart.

Agility

We hear time and again that changes to existing code are an exhausting chore for enterprises. And the older and bigger you get, the more complex the interdependencies between architectural components become. This has a cross-team impact, and it plays out over and over again with each new release and update. OutSystems 11 supports modern microservices-based architectures, allowing teams to work independently on smaller functional units. Combining this with cross-portfolio impact analysis lets developers focus on delivering new functionality safely and at the required speed, rather than spending hours validating and fixing cross-architectural code impacts.

Visibility across the entire app portfolio

Even with an impact analysis, in large interconnected systems, problems can arise that aren’t always obvious. Often, they occur gradually, making historical context very important. OutSystems 11 offers embedded monitoring and analytics, accessible via helpful dashboards, so you can identify potential choke points or find services that are impacted, along with the apps tied to those services.

Governance

One of the significant benefits of low-code is how easy it is to use, and as a result, it is an excellent resource for organizations wanting to take advantage of citizen developers. But, that also increases the number of cooks in the kitchen and can lead to independent work streams that may or may not have the same goals. OutSystems 11 addresses governance with an entitlement model that extends across all apps and services. Once you model your organization, you can create, allow, and monitor parallel delivery streams for each business area. Even better, you can still create modular, reusable services and share them among teams.

Protecting data across multi-experience touchpoints

Data moves constantly, it rarely rests, and it can be stored in millions of places at the same time. The old paradigms for data security are just not adequate any longer, and most organizations are already stretched thin by trying to keep up their particular industry regulations for security standards. Using OutSystems, IT teams can rest easy. New services that consume data meet residency and compliance requirements. Access control parameters are enforced. Risk assessments are completed before any new service deployment. And encryption and key management processes are in place to prevent confidential data from appearing in clear text—a violation of organizational policy.

Standardizing operations and portability

Whether containers are right for your organization is something only your team can decide. Research predicts that by 2020, the containers market will generate nearly $3 billion annually, so it’s quickly becoming a thing. If containers are on your roadmap, or you’re already using them, OutSystems 11 is ready so you can quickly deploy to leading CaaS and PaaS providers like Amazon ECS, Azure Container Service, Pivotal PAS, and Docker container environments.

Modern UX design without the specialized design resources

Brand recognition is the holy grail of loyalty marketing, and users of previous versions of OutSystem are no doubt familiar with our groundbreaking Silk UI framework. OutSystems 11 offers an entirely redesigned UI framework that lets any organization create coordinated and modern looking—and feeling—apps. The new framework reflects best-in-class UI patterns and screen templates that you can access and customize directly from the OutSystems visual editor. UX and UI teams can define their own live style guides, which ensures consistency in branding and user experience in every aspect of delivery.

Pace Yourself for the Long-Haul With OutSystems Low-Code

Every day, OutSystems helps thousands of customers worldwide streamline their IT business processes, modernize legacy systems, and develop amazing apps that their customers love. Companies like these:

  • Schneider Electric launched a “low-code digital factory” that expanded their governance across continents and saved 650 developer hours in the first year alone while cranking out 30 new business apps.
  • Fidelidade insurance used OutSystems to modernize core applications by replacing its front end with a modern web-based UI and taking advantage of a service-based architecture to access services from their core mainframe systems.
  • Nimbi, a global provider of supply-chain software solutions, estimates they have saved $20 million in platform costs since moving to OutSystems just five years ago.

Our Case Studies pages are full of examples like these. We’d love to help tell your story too.

Want All the Details?

This article is a brief summary of just some of the OutSystems 11 features and benefits. To learn more, check out our Press Release announcing OutSystems 11 and read more about this newest version of the platform that is recognized by Gartner and Forrester as being a Leader in the industry.

Then, we invite you to try OutSystems for yourself and see why it’s the best low-code platform for mobile, web, and core system development.
