The tech market in Memphis grew 11 percent in the past year, with 2,503 reported tech candidates currently active on CareerBuilder. Job titles that saw the most growth this past year include computer network architects (67%), information security analysts (35%), computer network support specialists (28%) and network and systems administrators (23%).
However, some of the extreme growth in talent markets in Memphis — such as a 67 percent increase in network architects — can be associated with a relatively small workforce. TekSystems reports only 350 computer network architects in total and just 230 information security analysts in Memphis. However, if the growth trend continues year over year, there could potentially be a wealth of candidates to choose from in the coming years.
