Non-profit tech association CompTIA just released in March its 2016 Cyberstates report, which provides a state-by-state analysis of the U.S. technology job market.
So, why is the tech industry so important to Colorado? It means:
• 3,088 net jobs added between 2014 and 2015 – a number that’s expected to continue to rise in 2016
• 11.5% of the state’s economy is from the tech industry
• A tech payroll of $19.9 billion in 2015, accounting for 9% of all private sector payroll in Colorado
According to CompTIA’s report, Colorado’s tech industry employment ranked 13th in the country and employed 187,242 workers in 2015.
On top of this, these workers also had an annual average salary of $106,350, which was 99% more than the average private sector wage in the entire state.
