New York tech jobs: Employment, salary and job outlook

Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) 2010 data indicates that 1.4 percent of New York workers are employed in computer or math occupations. In 2010, the New York Department of Labor (NYDL) identified several technology occupations in its report of significant industries. Computer software engineers made a median salary of $100,610 with a projected 19.1 percent job growth between 2006 and 2016.

Though the BLS identified 31,100 computer programmers who made an average of $78,680 in 2010 in New York, the NYDL projected a 6 percent decrease in jobs from 2006 to 2016. Programmers may consider classes at computer learning centers in New York to refresh their resumes and keep them competitive in the job market.

In addition to working for technology companies in New York City like Facebook, Etsy and Vimeo, professionals can also find technology jobs with the City of New York, an organization that employs more than 300,000 people and has its own CIO. You can also find inspiration in the many New York City-based start-ups like Art.sy, a global fine art marketplace that uses artificial intelligence. Art.sy is one of many technology businesses that will be housed in General Assembly, a technology and design campus in Manhattan that's a result of partnerships between New York City and many technology and design businesses.
