You no longer need to move to Silicon Valley to have a successful career in tech. Arizona’s tech ecosystem is growing fast. Arizona tech startups are announcing raises, major semiconductor and EV companies are expanding here and local capital is increasing.
Arizona’s tech sector even continued its rapid growth during the pandemic, ranking eighth in the country for tech jobs gained last year, according to the Cyberstates 2021 report from CompTIA.
With that growth comes opportunity, and there are lots of job openings across the state. And, as companies reopen and rebuild following shutdowns for much of the last year, many of these startups are also willing to hire remote workers.
Here’s a list of the companies hiring this year. Maybe you’ll find your next big break.
