Where are the hottest jobs outside of Silicon Valley?

Tech remains one of the hottest areas of hiring in the United States.  But not all the jobs are in Silicon Valley.  An interesting survey by the research firm Glassdoor looked into the number of job listings for software engineers and other tech roles in various metro areas. It’s based on all active Glassdoor job listings with “software” in the job title that were posted from June 2012 to June 2017.  Here are the cities outside of Silicon Valley that saw the most growth in terms of tech job listings:
