Hartford is one of the 10 fastest growing small markets for tech talent this year, according to a report from CBRE, a commercial real estate firm.
Lexi Russell, a researcher at CBRE, says Hartford’s tech labor pool jumped 10 percent in just the past two years.
“The acceleration in growth really supports the idea that Hartford is a great place because of the supply of tech talent, because of the growth. All of these things are kind of coming together.”
Russell says even though Hartford ranks 37th out of 50 cities with tech talent, she says tech jobs are strong in sectors like government and insurance.
The report says Hartford has good quality tech talent and moderate labor costs.
Boston also has moderate labor costs, but very high quality talent.
