Huntsville holds the same place on CompTIA's list -- 10th. Low cost of living helped this southern city stay on the list. It scored 1st overall for cost of living adjusted median hourly earnings, and it was 4th for cost of living. In fact, the cost of living is about 4% lower than the national average, while IT salaries are considerably higher, with a median of $95,597.

On the other hand, Huntsville scored much lower -- 15th -- for both one-year and five-year job growth.

Huntsville's tech sector has long been dominated by the space industry and military, and the hiring scene continues to be dominated by government suppliers like SAIC, Jacobs Engineering Group, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, and Boeing. However, the report also noted that this city is home to a growing number of startups as well.
