Whether you’re a seasoned veteran, just getting your foot in the door or one your way to becoming qualified technology professional, it’s always intriguing to discover your job options in the field. The good news is that you won’t need to relocate to the Silicon Valley in order to launch a promising tech career!

You’ll be happy to know that top technology companies are offering jobs all across America. We used real-time job analysis software to examine more than 1.8 million technology jobs posted throughout the past year. The data helped us identify the companies doing the most hiring in each state.

In some areas you’ll notice the tech tycoons you would expect, like Microsoft, Apple and Dell. But you may be surprised to find substantial tech job opportunities in less obvious industries such as healthcare, insurance and higher education. This just goes to show that qualified tech pros are needed everywhere!

How it works …

We analyzed more than 2 million technology job openings advertised in 2014. The map below is color-coded to reflect the total number of tech jobs posted by state.* Darker states have more opportunities; lighter states have fewer.

Simply hover over the state you’re interested in and click your mouse. You’ll see a list below featuring the four employers that had the most vacant technology positions over the past year. This will give you an idea of the opportunities available in your own backyard.
