Tech jobs are up 16 percent year/year in Austin, with more than 1,100 available postings on any given day. Austin also ranks in the top 10 for salary nationwide, according to the 2012-2013 Dice Salary Survey. Austin tech salaries were flat year/year, from $89,419 in 2011 to $89,680 in 2012, but that’s coming off of last year, when Austin was the fastest-growing city for tech salaries (+13 percent). Austin salaries are above the national average of $85,619.

The fastest-growing cities in the country when it comes to technology jobs posted on Dice may have been unexpected in the past. But, with communities coming together to support start-ups, court large employers and fund STEM education initiatives, no one should be surprised that "traditional tech centers" need a new definition.
