Talent acquisition company iCIMS analyzed the U.S. cities with the highest year-over-year growth in jobs for technology professionals, and learned that Raleigh, NC, was the top U.S. city for tech job growth, at 56.9%.

Omaha, NE, came in second in the rankings with 56.6% year-over-year job growth, followed by Austin, TX, with 46.4%.

In terms of moving to other cities to find tech jobs, Provo, UT, had the highest number of job candidates wanting to relocate elsewhere.

Said iCIMS chief economist Josh Wright, "Some tech roles are especially hard to fill, so those are better bets for beating the odds and moving out of town. Many employers struggle to find app developers, information security analysts, information system research scientists, and database administrators."
