Some 20 percent of Florida’s tech jobs are in Tampa, making it the most active market in the state. And according to the Tampa Bay Technology Forum, they’re well-paying jobs, too, ranging in salary from $60,000 to $100,000 a year.
Skills in the most demand include development, security, Windows, and implementation.
It’s all about the economy. “We’re seeing the pocketbooks open up for businesses,” Jason Caras, chief executive of tech support firm IT Authorities told the area TV station WTVT. “Businesses are doing well and excelling.” His company wants to increase its engineering staff by 30 percent.
