While thousands of employees were laid off in the last few months of 2022 by both technology giants and startups, demand for tech workers remains high across the country, including in Denver, according to a new report.
The annual Tech Job Report from Dice, a Denver-based tech career marketplace, shows the number of open tech jobs nationwide increased by 25% from last year, and Denver experienced a 13% year-over-year rise. Dice compared data from January through October of each year and didn’t include postings for November and December.
Denver ranked No. 15 among U.S. cities for the number of tech jobs posted from January through October, and it ranked No. 19 for the percentage growth from last year. Among states, Colorado took the No. 10 spot for job posting volume. Denver peaked for the year in June with 5,348 open positions, and fell to just 3,373 by November.
“Over the course of the last 20 to 30 years, the whole perception of Denver has changed,” Dice CEO Art Zeile told the Denver Business Journal. “It’s now considered to be a tech town.”
