Move over, Silicon Valley. New York's tech scene is heating up. With Spotify, Salesforce and Alphabet all expanding their presence in the Big Apple, it's an exciting time to be working in technology.
According to Endeavor Insight, New York City has become the largest truly urban center for tech companies and the second-largest tech hub in the world. Tech companies led by local entrepreneurs directly employ 53,000 people, over 1% of New York City’s workforce. CBRE has ranked New York city as the fifth-best market for tech talent in North America, with second-largest pool of workers employed in tech at 264,374.
This growth has lead to what has been described as a "talent cluster" - with like-minded creatives living in close proximity together. At Talent we specialize in the Digital sector from Creative through Data, Product and Engineering supplying opportunity at all levels. Demand is high and the variety of work is compelling.
Our team is also working with a growing number of Digital Health and Life Sciences professionals, with the Biotech industry growing rapidly across the North East. The latest salary figures for these roles are below.
