Because it is so well known, companies searching for a workforce at the top of their field make Sacramento a top priority to examine when hiring. From stem cell research to pharmaceuticals, there is a tremendous amount of innovation driving the medical world in Capital City.
Technology manufacturing has also earned a spot on the list of exceptional companies in the area boasting names like Aerojet Rocketdyne, Intel, Hewlett=Packard, and TSI Semiconductors. All businesses in the sector are building a diverse array of products used in the technology, aerospace, and defense industries.
The salaries and benefits that come with a career in the tech sector are some of the best to be found. In fact, in a recent CNBC workplace happiness survey, 90% of tech workers say they are very or generally satisfied with their job. Compared with all other workers, tech professionals appreciate that they are better paid and have more opportunities to advance their careers. In the same study by CNBC, the news outlet reported that, unlike most other occupations, those with skills and tech school training along with a college degree are now valued more than those graduating just from college with more theoretical knowledge versus hands-on experience. There is room for those in tech who have bypassed college and instead pursued certificates and have graduated from specialized bootcamps. Relative to tech workers with a bachelor’s degree, those working in any field of technology without a college background, who instead have relevant training and real-world experience are 89% more likely to say they’re satisfied with their job and equally likely to say they’re well paid and that they feel their contributions are valued.
Sacramento’s main tech sectors are government, agriculture, clean technology, education, and real estate. The diversity of options is attractive to those who want to enjoy a career that is different from what many tech hubs offer. The City of Sacramento is working hard to bolter those sectors and welcome new industries with grants and financial support available specifically for smaller businesses. This type of fertile ground for innovation allows the city to continue to expand, making it a worthy destination for all types of tech and tech professionals.
A big part of Sacramento’s tech landscape’s success lies within the extraordinary amount of creative people drawn to the area. Working at places that specifically encourage new ways of looking at challenges is tremendously rewarding to those in the Sacramento workforce. Regardless of the specific tech field an employee is in, most stay in their area of specialty because the city tends to have jobs that don’t get stale. While most other tech hubs experience significant levels of job turnover, Sacramento has some of the lowest rates nationwide.
The attitude among tech professionals in this vibrant setting means that they take pride in what they bring to the workplace. They like the opportunity to fix a problem, invent a new way of doing things, or create something from the ground up. In return, their companies reward their energy and creative ingenuity with higher-than-average salaries compared to the nation. The “cool factor” of the city is also a major draw. In non-tech-driven metropolitan areas, tech professionals can feel isolated, but that is certainly not the case in inclusive Sacramento. The tech tribe in the city is ascendant, with peers that encourage and inspire others.
Because the workforce in Sacramento reports a positive outlook regarding job security and high levels of happiness, residents are free to enjoy their time outside of work with a multitude of things to do. Old Sacramento is a local favorite, not just for showing off to visitors but also for being a part of a colorful scene with a distinct flair. Old melds with new in this area were first created as the landing place for those who had struck it rich during the Gold Rush. The cobblestone streets, art displays, and the state Railroad Museum make this city’s section fun for all ages. A particular favorite activity is to grab a ticket aboard one of the trains for an excursion like no other.
Sacramento is well known as a hip city with plenty of cool and unusual things to do. Exploring the nooks and crannies that show that the city was once ten feet lower than it currently is, is a fun activity, with plenty of quirky stores and restaurants.

Neighbors in Sacramento are just as unique as the things the city has for entertainment. Showcasing the bay, many homes are located in tree-shaded, close-knit communities, and the public transportation system is recognized as one of the best in the world. The average cost of living in the city and surrounding region is a bit higher than other metro areas away from either coast, but with robust salaries for those in any field in technology, a good quality of life is within reach.
