According to a recent Boston.com article, Massachusetts’ technology sector has added 3,300 computer engineering and web development jobs since the beginning of 2012. This 50 percent increase from last year can be largely attributed to “hiring sprees at software giants such as the Internet architecture company Akamai Technologies Inc.”
Massachusetts’s large growth in the technology job sector has helped the economy to recover more quickly than other parts of the country. According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are just over 65,000 computer systems design jobs in Massachusetts, about a “quarter of the 270,000 people working in technical and professional services her.”
