It’s not a secret that San Diego has been a favorite hub for technology-based entities to call home, but something new is happening downtown. In this geographic heart of a binational city on the border of Mexico, the vibrations of fresh fast-tech are making waves for dozens of companies who want to share the scene. The evolution of San Diego’s innovative economy stretches up and down miles of beachfront, still with plenty of real estate inland. This makes San Diego a magnet to main-stage tech companies to begin their shift to the area, as they discover that the city is now out-pacing other well-known locations for tech.
San Diego is once again rejuvenating itself as the third decade of the 21st century rolls in, much as it did with the Panama California Exposition in 1915 when the most modern technology of the day showcased the possibilities of the area. The city kept up the momentum, pivoting to a focus on research and design-based economic development and as major military base operations in the 1940s and upward. There was nothing to stop San Diego from storming into becoming the epicenter of globally traded science and engineering clusters in the 1990s, but this new resurgence is different: the city has watched and learned the pros and cons of being a tech hub from other silicon giants.
Now becoming recognized as “Silicon Beach,” San Diego’s newest reinvention is signaled by the billions of dollars in external investment to create large life science and technology industry complexes next to the centers of retail and tourism. An amazing eight acres of space has paved the way to become home to the San Diego Research and Development District, led by the IQHQ biotech real estate investment group. Former warehouses and long-vacant college buildings have been upcycled into co-working spaces for tech incubators and small business centers, heavily supported by the local government.
With the recent report released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, investments in technology are on a massive upswing. The report projects that employment in computer and information technology occupations will grow 11 percent from 2020 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. The Bureau of Labor Statistics also projects that the occupations of computer and information research scientists, as well as information security analysts, will experience even faster growth. With strong demand for tech talent over the next decade, employers are under pressure to offer more attractive compensation, employment terms, and locations with a top-ranked quality of life—San Diego’s forte.
San Diego came in at an impressive ninth place when ranked by Cushman & Wakefield, primarily for its concentration of tech jobs. Technology jobs account for nearly 9 percent of the total employment in the city, which has a population of 1.41 million. Adding to the top-ten award in the dominance of tech possibilities, San Diego’s science and engineering sectors now have the second-highest concentration of jobs in the nation, with a total of 63,000 experts.
San Diego’s presence as a tech hub has rightfully won its time in the spotlight, drawing multiple Fortune 500 companies eager to lure top-level technology wizards to the area. Tech companies need access to capital and high-quality labor, and the City in Motion has earned its nickname with its willingness to oblige. Employment in technology industries, an educated workforce, and venture capital investment in the region are attributes that make the city shine. Top sectors include cybersecurity, aerospace, navigation, software, health IT, bioinformatics, and cleantech, all of which drive the tech job density that strains to meet demand.
There is amplified demand in San Diego for those who have or are starting a career in technology. Recent trends towards remote work have snagged some of the more seasoned professionals, but many of the jobs in Silicon Beach need boots on the ground and expertise that can only be offered face-to-face. At the start of 2021, employers posted more than 365 000 job openings for IT positions, with software developers, support specialists, systems engineers, and architects among the most coveted workers. There is so much demand that the balance of power has shifted to potential employees, who often have to choose between multiple job offers in the booming San Diego tech landscape. To win over a top engineer in Silicon Beach, companies offer things like flexible hours, sign-on bonuses, and a choice of office locations around the city.
Startups have begun to snatch up tech phenoms, leaving established companies such as Qualcomm, Petco Holdings, Sempra Energy, and General Atomics scrambling to convince well-trained technology workers to choose them with sky-high salaries. Other entities that have felt comfortable in past years with the supply of job seekers are feeling the pressure, too. Rock-solid Fortune 1000 multi-year winners anchored in San Diego like ResMed, Illumina, and PriceSmart are feeling the pinch and often offering to pay employees for additional education.
As new technologies permeate all aspects of life, the need for innovation in technology accelerates at a record speed. With that, San Diego joins other cutting-edge tech hubs in the race to support startups. A large amount of funding is provided by the city and matched by venture capitalists, who see training program graduates jump straight into entrepreneurship with enterprising concepts. The surge to create successful incubation environments is backed by strong investor appetites, especially in machine learning apps, AI, robotics, and biotech. Startups can write their own tickets with a robust proof-of-concept as investors roll out creative offers, perks, and housing incentives to lure the best candidates.
Being in the scorching technology forefront that is San Diego is no less than exhilarating. Yet sunny San Diego faces the fast pace of business with a laid-back vibe. It helps that the city stretches along miles of the Pacific coastline and offers legendary surfing. There is so much more to San Diego than beaches, though. Not to be missed and regularly visited by locals are places like the world-famous San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld, and a kids-of-all-ages mecca, Legoland.
Guidebooks can point out major attractions, but those in the know in Dan Diego also flock to watch paragliders soar at Torrey Pines. Not to be confused with parasailers, paragliding is similar to hang gliding, a motorless way to fly, thermalling high to stay in the sky for potentially hours. More adventurous types can do more than watch; many companies offer tandem flights in this world-class center for paragliding. Other exciting adventures in San Diego include a stroll across the Spruce Street Suspension bridge that stretches a whopping 375 feet, 70 feet above the beautiful sights only seen from to top of Sessions Canyon.
San Diegans love exploring all year-round in their city, which is easy to do with warm, sunny days and the lucrative salaries that tech professionals see. Examples of how well jobs in the area pay include average salaries for Digital Designers at an annual salary of $118,000 and Software Engineers, who can expect to see around $108,00 per year.
