Raleigh, North Carolina, has staked its claim as the biggest new player in the tech hub scene. The Triangle is the area that is now home to the regional headquarters of Apple and Google, which is firing up movement by other business notables, such as SingleStore.

With talent and hungry new businesses seeing the advantages of multiple cities combining forces, the energy of the area has been sky-high. Tax incentives, business resources, and accessibility have all been the magnets that have pulled tech giants like IBM, Red Hat, Epic Games, Cisco Systems, Lenovo, and Fidelity to establish roots in the Raleigh Triangle Park (RTP) area. The concept of building a solid infrastructure to increase tech talent is one of the foremost goals for all of the metropolitan entities.
Raleigh is a hotbed of hundreds of incredible startups, another attractive angle of building a tech career in the area. An internationally published list of Raleigh’s “Goldilocks” companies is distributed each year, which helps give startups that are on the verge of becoming full-fledged businesses an edge as they begin competing with established companies. Many of these “tween” companies have proven business models and growing teams but haven’t fully graduated out of the startup space. Their answer is to seek, promote and retain a full team of skilled tech professionals. AI, IoT, and machine learning startups like Arya, Diveplane, and Bright World, as well as software platforms like appraisal Nation and Archive Social, have made that list and are now seeing the benefits with a strong new candidate base.
Companies are also attracted to Raleigh’s business-friendly low costs of operation. When a business of any size looks at expanding or relocating, operational costs are at the top of the list for consideration. The other concern that companies factor in includes the relative accessibility to talent. Compared to nearby Washington, D.C., the metro area’s sprawl has created pockets of tech talent that make local engineers inaccessible to employers, despite being in the same city. The cost of living in an area such as D.C. is $5,206 per month for a single person, and the yearly cost of office space accounted for just one person is $10,522, making a living and doing business in other locations much less attractive than a place like Raleigh. At $2,743 per month for one person and the estimated office space cost per employee at nearly half that of Washington, D.C., it’s a simple decision for smart operations.
Raleigh also has a history and culture of research and innovation. Home to some of the nation’s top research universities, including Duke, NC Central, NC State, and UNC-Chapel Hill, the air buzzes with inspiration and creativity. Institutions that feed off this energy, including GlaxoSmithKline, Cisco Systems, and the National Institutes of Health, revel in the connections and resources few other cities can offer. The tech scene in Raleigh has also received praise in its culture of diversity, being the birthplace of America’s largest black-owned businesses that includes North Carolina Mutual. Inclusivity, thinking outside of the box, and encouraging bold business moves will guide the area into the same leagues as other well-known tech hubs.
Raleigh-Durham ranks 10th among metro areas as a hub for tech talent to boost their tech careers. A growing number of workers in the high-tech marketplace is what helped the region achieve this notable achievement, standing out far above more than 50 other major U.S. cities. The study that resulted in such a high accolade focused on a variety of metrics designed to measure an area's ability to attract new talent. Educational and advanced training opportunities and strong growth in the local population make for more favorable tech hiring conditions than other competing tech hubs. The companies that make up the tech scene in Raleigh are dedicated to expansion, which they know is possible when they can show top candidates how inviting the city is for tech pros.
Technology professionals make up 7% of the metro area’s workforce, with more than 67,000 workers in high-tech sectors. Many tech jobs are solid choices in an ever-evolving world, and with the explosion of advancement in tech products and services, those with tech skills have demonstrated that they realize the time is right to anchor a home and career in Raleigh. Many weather-proof areas in tech, such as streaming, remote communications, and social media, are in higher demand every day to support a workforce that now often chooses to work remotely. CBRE, a real estate and investment research firm that studies the correlation between the quality of life and job potential to determine a city’s rank as a tech hub, found that reasons Raleigh is among the top include positive results in the area of tech business concentration, cost, advanced tech training, industry job growth outcomes, and market outlook for both office and living costs.
Raleigh has a competitive business environment and diversified economy centered around key industries, mostly tech-related. Propelled by global tech leaders such as Fortune 500 A-listers Bank of America, Duke Energy, Honeywell International, Lowe’s, Nucor, Sonic, and Truist Financial Corp., the state of North Carolina is well represented as a business leader. With the projected rapid increase in tech hiring of 15% in the next five years, attracting advanced tech talent is a top priority for employers. There are many driving factors behind the tech industry’s growth and strength, including the elevated number of startups and businesses that soared to the top of the list in their sectors raised in Raleigh-Durham. Statistics for professionals throughout the tech sector workforce show strengths in areas that most other tech hubs can’t claim. North Carolina is ranked at the number one state for women in the tech sector, number two for IT pros to living and work in the United States, and number two as America’s Most Digitally Inclusive Tech City by CompTIA and the NC Brookings Institution.
Key industry sectors in Raleigh line up with anything a tech professional is looking for. Careers in IT from SAS, the world’s largest private software company, to open-source giant Red Hat, the region’s IT-specific economy is rapidly spurring innovation. The Research Triangle Region has one of the largest concentrations of jobs in technology in the nation across analytics, mobile applications, open-source, healthcare IT, cloud computing, and cybersecurity. Advanced manufacturing is another strong industry in Raleigh, as are life sciences. Cleantech and smart grid technologies are leaders in the area which focus on renewable energy and energy efficiency, also often engaged in advanced transportation and water technologies. Collectively, these industries invest tens of millions of dollars annually on research, development, and implementation of new enabling visions.
Raleigh, nicknamed “The City of Oaks,” is a dream location for those with inherent curiosity. High-ranking educational institutions draw both a young and young-at-heart population, who appreciate the availability of leading-edge information on a myriad of subjects. Campuses also present world-class entertainment options that pair perfectly with a night on the town at one of the many award-winning restaurants. With four distinct seasons, Raleigh’s weather is perfect for outdoor activities all year round, meaning fun lovers can splash in their pool in the summer and wonder at the occasional snowflake in winter.
Raleigh’s residents have Southern hospitality embedded in their system, including the pleasing aesthetic side with tree-lined streets and manicured parks. The greenery, which includes the pride many residents take in cultivating their gardens, prompts locals to say it feels like they live in a forest. Raleigh is an active community that appreciates using the natural environment around them at their leisure. Many take advantage of the Neuse River’s 28-mile path that passes through Lake Dam and the Johnston County line. There is also quaint and picture-worthy Pullen Park, which offers carousel rides, paddle boat trips, and an indoor aquatic center.
Arguably the best way the City of Oaks demonstrates its reputation as providing a park-like environment is with the squat round hut known as the Cloud Chamber for the Trees and Sky. Although it looks like an enchanted hobbit home, it is actually a rustic camera obscura. Located on the largest museum campus in the nation, the Cloud Chamber is a one-of-a-kind wonder that mixes fairy tale design with medieval technology. The low-lying hut made of large stone blocks is igloo-shaped with lush green turf as a roof. When the single wooden door that serves as the entrance is shut tight, the chamber becomes light-tight and acts as a giant camera with just a pinhole size gap in the roof. Applying medieval optics tricks, the structure ends up being a life-size device that projects a mirror image of the area on the opposite side of the pinhole. A step into this unique larger-than-life camera made from nature, producing a perfect blend of wonder and technology, is the ideal analogy for what life in Raleigh is like.
