San Antonio is such an attractive place to live, play and work, so it's no surprise that it is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. What may surprise some is how fast it is climbing up the tech-hub ratings, heading towards the most desirable place for tech entities and professional tech wizards to land. As home to the second-largest cyber hub in the country, the city’s Chamber of Commerce is ready to welcome more Fortune 500 companies to add to its impressive list of four current businesses that made the tough criteria. The four top earners solidly on the list are iHeartMedia, USAA, and CST Brands, with other well-known companies moving up the Fortune 1000 list of names. San Antonio boasts other corporate giants with roots in San Antonio, including Rackspace Technology, TaskUs, Valero Energy, and Harland Clarke. From the booming downtown tech district and outlying technology-friendly locations, San Antonio is able to further develop, attract, and retain businesses large and small. Startups are especially welcome, too, in this vibrant, innovative, and highly diverse Texas town.
San Antonio has every tech industry a professional could want and a sizable demand for tech talent to join other entities that aren’t necessarily known as technology-based businesses. Some of the biggest sectors in the city include cybersecurity, information technology, advanced manufacturing, and healthcare with bioscience. These areas, in particular, appreciate how innovative, collaborative, and community-driven San Antonio is, along with the fact that the state has no income tax, making it a desirable place to reside.
Coworking spaces full of entrepreneurs and startups have driven the evolution of San Antonio’s downtown tech district. Groups located in the heart of the technology hub, such as Geekdom, EPIcenter, and TechBlock, have elevated the city’s prominence, putting San Antonio into the spotlight as it catapults to a leading market.
In tech circles, San Antonio is perhaps best known for its cybersecurity prowess. Other than Washington, D.C., San Antonio is home to more cybersecurity professionals than anyplace else in the United States. To add fuel to the fire, cybersecurity is now ranked among the most in-demand professions in the nation. Business promoters in the city aim to position their home as a global epicenter for cybersecurity initiatives. The local presence of cybersecurity operations run by the U.S. Air Forces, FBI, National Security Agency, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, along with dozens of the highest-ranking cybersecurity businesses and programs, makes the city an undeniable force.
Alamo City’s tech scene took off with Rackspace, the web hosting company that launched and rocketed skyward in the late 1990s. Current and former Rackspace employees have been behind much of the local industry and the city’s forward-thinking growth. An example of one supportive measure offered by a “Racker” is the 80/20 Foundation. Their mission is to attract and help innovative, creative talent to the city and help them evolve, thus adding to San Antonio’s tech infrastructure. The Foundation enthusiastically supports existing small businesses, those relocating, and anyone who has a proof-of-concept they would like guidance with.
San Antonio is already a winner for anyone considering a career in technology in the city. With four Fortune 500 companies, a host of easily recognized big names in tech, and many more eagerly relocating, such as SkipCart, Matthews International, and Saferide Health. The three technology companies alone have created more than 250 new jobs in the city and add to the list of opportunities waiting for techies to be filled. Venture-backed technology is also booming in the Alamo City, with investors hot on the trail looking for good ideas to assist during incubation.
The Alamo City is also known by another nickname: Cyber City. San Antonio was leading the field of cybersecurity before the industry even had a name.
