When U.S. News and World Report released their rankings of the best places to live in the United States in 2017, Austin, Texas topped the list at number 1. Austin’s relatively low cost of living, below-average crime rate, and low taxes make it an attractive home for families and young professionals. Its famous music scene and annual festivals (like South by Southwest) also put Austin on the map.
What’s more, Austin, along with the rest of central Texas, has been known since the ‘90s as the “Silicon Hills” and has become a hub for technology and venture capitalist investments.
If Austin living sounds attractive to you, we’ve got you covered. Here are some companies actively looking for developers in the Austin area.
