working In Austin Tech
Anchored by computer company Dell, fueled by events like SXSW, and cultivated by community hubs like Capital Factory, the Austin tech community is consistently listed as one of America's top tech ecosystems.
According to the Free Enterprise Innovation That Matters report:
Driving the Texas tech hub’s ascent is its considerable availability of skilled workforce members, as well as a particularly large startup density. The city — increasingly known as “Silicon Hills” and widely recognized for its business-friendly regulatory climate and relatively affordable cost-of-living — is also attractive to young software developers and other technology workers angling to break into large tech firms, such as Google, Facebook, Apple and HomeAway, that have set up shop in the trendy town.
