Between advances in familiar industries and the growth of a new ecosystem powered by startup incubators and innovation centers, Buffalo is becoming a destination for technology job seekers on the move!
This change is evident across the city, and you can see it in the data, too. Technology Councils of North America (TECNA) found that from May 2021 to April 2022, local technology jobs in Buffalo increased by 9.2 percent – a rate of growth faster than any of the top-25 metro areas across the United States.
And it’s not just about the jobs: Buffalo is a great place to live! There’s something for everyone no matter if you enjoy sports, the arts, food, or the great outdoors. It should also come as no surprise that the City of Good Neighbors was ranked #1 on Travel and Leisure’s list of America’s Friendliest Cities.
