Since the 1970s, San Jose has been synonymous with Silicon Valley, often referred to as the most prominent tech hub in the world. The stories of what created Silicon Valley are well known, yet seemingly from a relatively quainter time in computing. Hewlett-Packard was initially composed of two Stanford students working out of their garage. Steve Jobs, the icon who reshaped industries around the world, relocated early to the area, and Mark Zuckerberg, a whole social media platform that engages 2.8 billion monthly active users worldwide, are all part of the fabric of smart individuals starting out with ingenuity and drive. With their massive success, as well as others founded in San Jose, to skyrocket, including Apple, Oracle, and Atari, an exodus of tech talent flocked to the area, feeding back into San Jose’s reputations as “the place to be if one wanted to skyrocket into success in technology.”
San Jose’s rebirth into Silicon Valley came about through the intersection of several contributing factors, including skilled science research centers like Stanford, plentiful venture capital, and steady spending by the Department of Defense. Stanford University took on a leadership role in propelling technology. Sparked by encouragement in innovation, two students built a quest to catalog and analyze the World Wide Web, resulting in the creation of Google. What began as a graduate project became one of the world’s best-recognized companies and a case study of the tight relationship between Stanford University and many private companies throughout San Jose.
The biggest names in tech on the Fortune 500 list are easily recognizable. PayPal, Adobe, eBay, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, and Sanmina lead the pack, along with literally hundreds of other household names packed into one impactful geographic area. The tech buzz has been so consistently hot over decades, it’s hard to imagine a world without a place that established a culture of entrepreneurship, resilience, and almost unimaginable tech success. The pace in San Jose’s tech landscape continues to evolve every moment, and with all areas of technology running the nation’s infrastructure, opportunities won’t slow down for the foreseeable future.
While many technologists focus on recent history and a sky-high future, many don’t realize the long historical relationship San Jose has with technology. Some of the most advanced waves in tech began as early as 1899 when the first ship-to-shore wireless telegraph message to be received in the U.S. was transmitted to San Francisco. The California State Telegraph Company tapped nearby San Jose to build a line throughout the state for communications via the city, and further technologies began to jump ahead in fertile tech proximity.
Along the lines of communication, technology in the field progressed to the invention and manufacturing of the transistor, propelling all technology in the area to move forward faster than any other area in history. NASA was created in 1957 and opened Moffett Field near San Jose, and the only company able to build electronics for space capsules at the time was Fairchild Semiconductor.
Most of the Valley’s early success came from either components like silicon chips or the hardware into which the chips were placed, but today, the field of technology is wide open to every area of tech being developed. From the invention of the personal computer and the iPhone, now some of the hottest industries revolve around AI, advanced manufacturing, robotics, and many other futuristic areas quickly becoming a reality. Venture capitalists still have their focus on those in San Jose, and headlines constantly report breaking tech news that shakes the globe.
San Jose is undeniably the tech mecca for the majority of those with a career in technology. All of the tech giants are in the city, as are thousands of smaller businesses, government-based tech jobs, and of course, a legendary incubator for startups. Silicon Valley is the epicenter for all areas of technology, ranging from energy and manufacturing to software development and mobile gaming, for just a few examples. The San Jose area has seen a 70.2% jump in tech sector employment in the most recent years, which has also created a domino effect, generating approximately 4.3 non-tech jobs for each technology-based job created.
Tech is not just an industry but a way of life, and the sooner those who want to get into a tech career can get started, the better. That goes for seasoned professionals, too. It’s critical to invest in training to stay relevant and move up the ladder. San Jose is exactly the right place for tech talent to get the assistance they need. Through top training schools, mentorships, and incredibly valuable networking opportunities, breaking through any perceived barrier isn’t hard in this part of Silicon Valley. Once a tech professional is in a position in San Jose, their career becomes extremely lucrative. The median wage across all tech positions in the area runs at an average of double of other tech hubs in the nation, and tech gurus report that once they’ve landed a position, they feel extremely solid and optimistic about the rest of their career. Tech companies are smart; they know that their best asset is their workforce to stay ahead of the competition, and they are willing to reward their employees heavily.
The statistics for landing an excellent job in technology in San Jose paint a bright picture. The current status is so robust that it has soared far above the old records set in the dot-com era two decades ago. Halfway through just one year, the area boasted 831,700 tech jobs, according to numbers culled from State employment Development Department data. San Jose is breaking another time-honored tradition; it emphasizes one skill description that is not generally associated with tech: communication abilities. Followed closely by more traditional requirements such as computer languages, strengths in STEM, and other tech-related talents, this part of Silicon Valley is making a wise move in investing in technologists who are well-rounded in many business aspects. Adding business communication as the most desirable skill listed in the majority of job descriptions, San Jose is poised to once again surge ahead due to its ingenuity.
Official tech work spills over into thriving niche communities that enjoy creating and competing with hobbies such as robotics clubs, gaming competitions, sub-orbital rocketry, and many other often school-sponsored groups. Mentors from major league tech corporations enjoy shepherding a younger generation where professional skills meet amateur pursuits, creating a unique bridge between two worlds. Summer camps abound with subjects like coding and medical research turned into fun, fascinating scientific explorations and sell out quickly, usually at least a year ahead of time. Experimental organizations thrive on the energy produced by Silicon Valley, especially in digital arts, where independent film production is moving away from former hubs such as Hollywood. Sub-orbital rocketry is now more familiar to all populations with the rush to create commercial space flights, and clubs flourish in the tech-rich environment.
There are many more ways to take advantage of outside-of-work tech fascinations, such as the Intel Museum, a free attraction that shows how the company was sparked, but also has a Name Machine, where participants can turn letters into binary code and a sterile microchip fabrication lab available for student experiments.
Reaching beyond tech-based activities, the San Jose Giants are the cities sports world pride and joy. Playing at the minor league Municipal Stadium, a 77-year-old complex, spectators are likely to sit among tech, and business legends Mark Cuban, Steve Ballmer, Mark Zuckerberg are often found cheering on the team.
