If you make your living – or plan to make your living – in Information Technology (and why wouldn’t you, it’s one of the fastest growing industries in the US), chances are you have researched the best places to live.

Palo Alto or San Jose in California is obviously on the top of the list. It’s the thought that all of the best and brightest in the tech world live in Silicon Valley and bike to work while rubbing elbows with Zuck, Sergey and Tim Cook.

While that may be your dream, it’s not entirely realistic. And we have good news – there are plenty of amazing places to live while you pursue your IT dreams.

US News has recently come out with their 10 Best Places to Find a Job in Technology. And we at Maxsys Solutions are proud to say that our very own, Dallas, TX is #9 on the list.

The Dallas area is another hub for technology, and is home to the headquarters of more than 20 Fortune 500 companies, including AT&T;, Texas Instruments and Alliance Data Systems. The metro area is also a hotbed for startups. Fledgling companies in the area include SurgeryLink, which is developing technologies to reduce the risk of surgery, and Dialexa, which designs and engineers technology products for other companies. Startup creators also benefit from Dallas Startup Week, an annual celebration of the local startup community.

Other US cities that are great for finding a job in technology include:

  • #10 Colorado Springs, CO
  • #7 Austin, TX
  • #4 Detroit, MI
  • #2 San Francisco, CA
  • #1 San Jose, CA
