Sector Snapshot: Information Technology

Seattle's tech sector is booming. Not only do we have some of the biggest names in tech located in the heart of our city, but we also have a buzzing ecosystem of startups creating new technologies, addressing civic and cultural challenges, and redefining the way we see and interact with the world.  

OED's StartupSeattle program helps tech entrepreneurs navigate the sea of resources and connections that Seattle offers and works to expand opportunities in technology. The White House has designated the Seattle region a TechHire community, aiming to fill the growing number of open tech jobs by aligning employers with training providers like Ada Developers Academy, a software development training for women; Unloop, training for people who have been in prison to succeed in careers in tech; and Floodgate Academy, a developer operations training focused on underrepresented communities.
