The Denver-Metro area has been noted as one of the hotbeds for technology employment and is considered to be a hub of start-up activity, possibly the next Silicon Valley (wow!). According to CompTIA’s Cyberstates 2015 report, Colorado is the 3rd state in the nation for high-tech workers, and the state’s high-tech wages are posting at around $101,800. The demand for high-tech workers is mostly in part to the abundance of tech companies currently located in the Denver-Metro area and many that are coming in the near future. Tech companies now located in the metro-area include: ViaWest, Cooley, Oracle, Cloudera, Webroot, Zayo, Ball and many more. This bodes well for those wanting to get into the tech industry.
