What pairs with Seattle like peanut butter and jelly? Tech of course! These days our city is known for its tech talent and job opportunities in the sector. So much so that we had one of the top scores on CBRE’s annual scoring tech talent report.

The report ranks the top 75 tech markets in the U.S. and Canada. Overall, the U.S. added a net 136,000 tech talent jobs last year despite economic shifts and increased remote hiring. What’s more, remote work is looking like a new way to expand; with nearly a quarter of all tech job listings now being for remote positions.
