Average Tech Salary: $97,113

Average Tech Salary Adjusted for Cost of Living: $99,910

Phoenix didn't make the earlier slideshow of the top ten places for software job growth, but its tech employment numbers are still fairly impressive. According to the CompTIA Cyberstates 2017 report, the Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metro area has 105,120 technology industry jobs, with 10,604 openings available in the fourth quarter of 2016. The warm weather and fairly low cost of living that attract so many seniors to Arizona also appeal to companies that hire a lot of IT professionals. Phoenix employers hiring tech workers include (in no particular order) Wells Fargo, American Express, Career Evolutions, SonSoft Inc., CSL Behring, ITL USA, Amazon.com, Aetna, Honeywell and Banner Health.
