Portland is one of the five fastest-growing cities for tech jobs, according to an article in Fortune.

A survey from the tech job site Dice.com revealed that Portland had an eleven percent increase in tech jobs since last December, coming in 4th place in total. 

The other top five cities include Milwaukee (39 percent), Nashville (24 percent), Hartford (12 percent), and Sacramento (10 percent).

The growing number of tech jobs is indicative of the growing opportunities for IT positions in major metropolitan areas outside Silicon Valley and other traditionally tech-oriented cities. 

According to Dice’s survey, the job market for IT professionals in the Untied States is going nowhere but up. About 75 percent of the 800 employers polled said they planned to increase the number of their employees in 2015 and 72 percent said they hope to expand their IT department by at least 10 percent within the next six months.

The growth in demand for certain IT skills includes cybersecurity experts, which experienced a 77 percent increase since December 2013 and techies knowledgeable in programs such as Puppet (61 percent), Hadoop (57 percent), Big Data (56 percent), and JIRL (55 percent).
