Tech Jobs are Booming

Minneapolis has become a buzzing hub for tech startups and small businesses. There has been such a boom in growth for tech jobs in the Twin Cities that it is being referred to as Silicon Prairie. Minneapolis is home to many of the fastest-growing companies in the country, and a lot of them are in the technology field. Minneapolis is also near the top of the country in hiring, right up there with tech giants like San Francisco. Software developers, computer systems analysts, computer network architects, web developers and computer programmers thrive here.

You Can Afford to Stay a While

Opportunities are great, but they don’t mean much if the cost of living is unreasonable. Minneapolis is the most affordable city for tech professionals to live in the country. Austin, San Francisco, Baltimore, Portland and many others have a higher median cost and a higher cost of living than Minneapolis. At ESP IT, we want you to live a comfortable life. We want you to succeed in your career while keeping the stress to a minimum. If you want an affordable city to live and work in, Minneapolis is a great choice. We are the most trusted technology staffing firm in the Twin Cities so, rest assured, you are in good hands.

Diversity Matters

Minneapolis is a thriving tech center for women. In fact, it is one of the best cities for women in any field. Pay gaps are lower and a growing percentage of tech jobs are being filled by women; and we expect that trend to continue. Diversity is a big reason why Minneapolis is a hub for tech professionals. We celebrate diversity at ESP IT and take pride in providing tech opportunities for women.
