Washington a Big Winner in Tech Job Growth During Pandemic


According to a new report from the Technology Councils of North America (TECNA), Washington state had the third-highest percentage gain in tech jobs from December 2019 to December 2021, with a 6.6 percent increase.

TECNA represents nearly 60 IT and tech trade organizations, including the Washington Technology Industry Association. The report analyzed data from elmpact, a labor market data visualization company, and included more than 27,000 data points.

“Through this report, we aim to provide local, state, and federal government policymakers with the key insights needed to inform decisions that will positively impact their local communities and grow the technology economy and workforce across North America,” said the CEO of TECNA, Jennifer Grundy Young.
