Houston is a technology mecca across the broadest spectrum of industries imaginable. As the fourth biggest city in America, there is room—and enthusiasm—to support a myriad of technology-based industries and research. Famously known as the home of NASA’s Johnson Space Center, including Mission Control, all of the big players in aerospace and astrospace are located in the Houston metropolitan area. NASA contracts not just with aerospace-related entities, but with project management professionals, digital marketing, web development, and most other online efforts.
Houston is the global capital in the oil and gas industry, with over 30% of the world's oil and gas jobs. The city is also heavily invested in finding alternative energy sources and is straining with the need for qualified workers in the engineering realm. The heaviest demand is for professionals such as Wind Turbine technicians, Statisticians, and Operational Analysts. Other sectors looking for immediate tech talent include Aerospace and Aviation Engineering, Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, and Life Sciences Connected to Biotech.
The list of what Houston has to offer in tech goes on, especially since it is home to the 6th largest port in the world, Port Houston. The port is a 50-mile long complex of diverse facilities and is the busiest port in the nation in terms of foreign tonnage. Many petroleum corporations have built refineries along the channel, including a petrochemical complex that is one of the largest in the world. Interestingly, the Port of Houston also harbors the world’s largest cruise ships and has been sounding the departure horn for thousands of happy travelers since 1922.
Houston aggressively lures all fast-tech businesses to the city, knowing that the metropolis can provide a much lower cost of doing business and has ample space for the warehouses, offices, and corporate testing buildings. Tech professionals also appreciate that they have solid job security, especially with the city’s economic commitment predicting the tech sector to skyrocket upwards, with an estimated 9,000 jobs being added in the next few years. A tremendous bonus for working in the city is that individuals and companies have no income tax in the state of Texas, making it easier to recruit top talent. The overall statistics for the economy of Houston are astounding, including boasting a $490B regional GDP and more than 500 technology-based employers.
Houston is currently the home of more than twenty-four Fortune 500 companies and claims third place in the nation for the number of major corporate headquarters. Major players include Shell Oil, Haliburton, Boeing, Sysco, Jacobs, BP, and Hewlett Packard.
Technology-based careers in Houston come with high salaries and a robust choice of where to work. As major technology corporations continue to move their headquarters to Houston, creating what is being nicknamed the Silicon Bayou, it is apparent why they are looking to position themselves away from the former well-known locations in the Bay Area. The cost of living in Houston is 44% less than the cost of living in San Francisco, demonstrated by statistics such as computer programming, where a programmer earning $107,070 in the Bay area would only need to make $60,369 in Houston to maintain the same standard of living. Job security is
Finding a career in any technology sector in Houston due to reassurance of a rise in available jobs at 11% in 2021.
An example of where the tech jobs are coming from can be seen in examples such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company’s decision to shift its headquarters from Silicon Valley to Houston. The company praises housing as “an attractive market for us to recruit and retain latent, and a great place to do business,” quite a strong statement from a robust corporation that could choose any location in the world to call home. HPE already employs more than 2,500 people in the Houston area, and the demand for more tech professionals by this company alone demonstrates the possibilities for techies to find the job they’ve been looking for.
Additionally, as the home of NASA’s Human Space Program and headquarters for all of the major players in the energy industry, Houston has long been known for its engineering prowess. The majority of the technology talent is embedded in some of the field’s largest enterprises such as energy and health care, subsectors such as software development, programming database management.
With high salaries, no state income tax, and plenty of job security, Houstonians also like the many choices of neighborhoods, called “wards,” with the broadest span of diversity in the nation, partly due to the ease of relocation via the Port of Houston and Houston International Airport, which ranks among the 20th busiest airports in the United States. Other popular places to settle down include the suburb of the Woodlands to the northwest of the city center and League City, bordering on NASA’s Johnson Space Center.
Another option for Houstonians to strike out on their own in technology or enjoy their engineering passions is by joining “maker-spaces,” huge warehouses that provide individual “cubicle” style workbenches, surrounded by equipment such as AutoCAD and other software preloaded computer labs, laser cutters, 3D printers, suturing and welding centers, pottery and advanced jewelry areas, and much more. TXRX in downtown Houston is one of the largest non-profit maker spaces in the world and allows members to work on their own on any of the equipment and offer classes in an array of subjects.
The Gulf of Mexico is a short hour or two away from Houston, depending on busy seasons. Galveston is the center of fun for Houstonians and travelers from around the world for a vast stretch of clean beaches and dunes, as well as dolphin watching. Locals know how to escape the tourist season with the free Bolivar Ferry, which takes passengers to the Bolivar Peninsula, which allows beachgoers a chance to drive onto the beach and park next to their spot to swim in the warm water and soak in the sun.
Residents and visitors love the fact that they can visit Space Center Houston, the official visitor center of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. With rotating exhibits, talks given by current and former astronauts, and the highlight of a visit to the Smithsonian Affiliates museum: a tour of the JSC grounds, including Mission Control, still operating as the base for everything space-related for the U.S. NASA programs.
Salaries in Houston encourage anyone in technology to call the city home. Examples of what professionals in the area can earn include Digital Designers, who average $128,000 per year, Software Engineers, who can find entry-level jobs at $90,000, and earnings for Data Scientists at $11,000 on average.
