Dice Tech jobs and salary reports shows some interesting information.  These photos show the highlights I saw.

And the fact Charlotte is now on the list of the top 25 tech markets is great which 10 years ago nobody would have included our city.  Our average tech salaries are about 4% less than Los Angeles for example yet their average home price more than doubled ours.

Enter thread to read Tech News, instead it's about whether or not to move graves lol

I know we talked about this report before but here is a great summary from CBRE on Scoring Top Tech Talent. Charlotte had the 4th biggest brain gain in North America after Toronto, San Fran Bay a

The list says "metro area," but it does seem odd that both Miami and Atlanta are missing.  "City area" would explain that, as both are relatively small cities in their metros.

I'm sure that doesn't matter. Tampa, Raleigh, Cleveland, Orlando are all smaller. Atlanta is on the list at 19, and that also seems VERY low.

The only thing I can think of is the amount of data people being hired by the banks are being labeled as tech workers.

Clearly all of these companies raising multi millions of dollars is great news.  As someone who is unfamiliar with these tech start ups though, what does the millions in financial raising mean for company growth?  More money to put into research and development?

I wouldn't really call this a tech company though, they really are just a relatively new building contractor based out of Charlotte going through some private funding. There are plenty of local Commscope or Cisco contractors providing DAS and wireless options like this one, nothing special.

Intapp's IPO and parent of Charlotte based DealCloud means more growth for their Charlotte office.

DealCloud parent Intapp raises $273M IPO: What that means for local operations - Charlotte Business Journal (bizjournals.com)

""Palo Alto, California-based Intapp (NASDAQ: INTA) sold 10.5 million shares at $26 per share, garnering an approximately $1.6 billion valuation. Underwriters still have a 30-day option to purchase up to another 1.575 million shares. Intapp provides cloud-based software for professional and financial services firms. It acquired Charlotte fintech company DealCloud in 2018. The IPO is the next step in Intapp's growth trajectory, said Ben Harrison, president of financial services at Intapp and co-founder of DealCloud. "Certainly that means we'll be investing in all of our office locations around the world. Charlotte is a huge hub and a very important center for us, and so we will be growing there as we have in past years," Harrison said. About 900 of Intapp's 1,600 clients are in the financial-services sector, Harrison said. Intapp's DealCloud offering largely focuses on investment banking and private capital markets firms. Active markets and an increase in M&A and other transactions has led companies to look for infrastructure to support their own growth, he said. Intapp's other offering, OnePlace, is marketed toward professional services firms.   Charlotte is a good place for Intapp to do business for multiple reasons — lower real estate costs, an international airport and access to talent, Harrison said. Intapp plans to hire for positions in sales and marketing, the service and delivery teams and account management, among other roles. The firm's website now shows more than 30 positions available locally.  Intapp will have to expand its Charlotte office at 300 South Tryon as it adds employees, Harrison noted.""

Credit Karma parent company of Intuit making huge tech purchase in Atlanta just down the road with Mailchimp.     Since the Credit Karma facility here in Charlotte is really growing and almost acts as a 2nd HQ why not move closer Intuit from Silcon Valley? #380 on the Fortune 500 list.  

""Atlanta-based marketing technology giant Mailchimp is set to sell to global financial technology platform Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU) for $12 billion, according to a Sept. 13 announcement.  Intuit, which makes TurboTax, QuickBooks and Credit Karma, plans to create an end-to-end customer growth platform for small and mid-sized businesses, which is Mailchimp’s main customer base."" From ATL Business Chronicle 

This is interesting as there's a stiff competition between Atlanta and Charlotte over HQs and de facto 2nd HQs in the Southeast of major corporations. Especially after the creation of Truist, the merger of BB&T and SunTrust, to place its HQs in Charlotte. If Intuit does have the purse strings of 2nd HQ here then you know the competition gonna get even more heated between the 2 cities. 

The airports (ATL & CLT) are already battling it out now.
