Austin, Texas is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States. Each year, more and more adults are moving to Austin to pursue career opportunities, especially in the technology field. Several big technology companies have established offices in the city, and jobseekers are moving from Miami to Austin in the hopes of growing their careers with one of these well-known companies.
The city’s relatively affordable cost of living is just one of the reasons so many adults are choosing to move to Austin. Paired with a well-known music city (home of the famous Austin City Limits festival), it’s common sense that workers in the tech field would choose this city as their home base.
Besides common names like Amazon, Hewlett-Packard, and Nintendo, there is a long list of technology companies that operate out of Austin and add to the city’s technology vibe.
One of the “newer” big name technology companies, Tesla started out in 2003. With its dynamic CEO Elon Musk, Tesla has quickly carved out a name for itself as the leader in electric vehicle manufacturing and clean energy production. Some of its top-selling products have included their Model 3 vehicle, which was the bestselling car in California during the first quarter of its debut year.
Founded by Michael Dell, the Dell company is one of the largest and most famous PC companies globally. The company is famous for its computers, printers, software, and countless computer accessories that have helped it earn its title as the third-largest PC vendor in the world.
While headquartered in New York, IBM has a large office in Austin. This multinational computer company is renowned for its inventions that were groundbreaking at the time of their launch, including floppy disks, the magnetic stripe card, and the hard disk drive. This company’s roots go all the way back to 1911 when it was called the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company.
Chances are, you are familiar with Apple products like the iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch. This company established itself as a household name in the last 1990s with its famous Macintosh computer, known as the iMac, although it’s technically been around since the early ‘70s. In 2019, Apple ranked among the top 100 companies to work for, according to a Forbes list.
Oracle is a technology company that specializes in computer database software. It helps its users manage large amounts of information. In the past few years, they’ve expanded their products to include cloud engineered systems. The giant mega-company Amazon is one of the major brands that uses Oracle to handle most of its business.
Suburbs That Offer a Quiet Sanctuary
If the big-city life isn’t for you, you can still find employment with the big technology brands but head home to the suburbs at the end of the day. Suburbs like Cedar Park, Round Rock, Pflugerville and Georgetown are all popular places of residence north of the city limits. These suburbs offer tranquility for workers who want to leave the city vibe at work and retire to a more quiet and less trafficked area for the evening.
San Marcos is an alternate option south of Austin that provides sanctuary for tech workers that spend their working days in Austin but prefer less hustle and bustle in their off-hours.
