‘Overall, remote work and hiring demand for tech talent remain at an all-time high,” according to Hired. ‘However, our data shows that more people are migrating out of big tech hubs into areas with lower cost of living. This has led to an increase in demand and interview requests in areas with lower cost of living.’

No. 2 Highest Average Salary Increase: Austin

Increase: 5 Percent

Austin, Texas, saw the second highest salary increase in Hired’s report at 5 percent. The average salary was $144,000, the same as San Diego.

Despite the increase, Texas’ capital city still offers tech workers less pay than traditional tech hubs such as San Francisco, Seattle and New York. It paid more on average than Washington, D.C.; Atlanta and Denver.

With Austin’s lower cost of living, making San Francisco’s tech salary average of $165,000 is akin to making $234,000 in Austin, according to the report.

Austin has attracted tech giants including Oracle and data center owner Digital Realty to relocate from the Bay Area during the pandemic.

Larry Ellison, the chairman, chief technology officer, and co-founder of Oracle, notably did not join the company in Austin. He instead moved to the Hawaiian island of Lanai, which he owns.
