Birmingham is maturing from a digital and technology revolution which has seen the emergence of vibrant startup hubs. In fact, the Second City and the broader West Midlands region are home to over 13,000 tech companies – and Birmingham has the second-highest number of start-ups after London. The region is also home to some of the biggest tech developments happening in the UK: for example, Birmingham was one of the first cities to get 5G coverage earlier this year.
The tech and digital job market in the city is thriving. Full Stack Developers and Devops Engineers are in especially high demand, as are professionals skilled in the areas of business intelligence and data analytics. What’s more, Birmingham is home to an incredibly close-knit and active tech community, with regular events, meet-ups, and Birmingham Tech Week happening every year.
