Digital Exodus? Why Experienced Tech Workers Are Searching Outside Silicon Valley


For decades, Silicon Valley has been a magnet for tech talent, pulling the world’s best and brightest into California’s bay area.

It’s easy to understand why: Silicon Valley hosts many of the world’s most successful tech firms including Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix and PayPal. These firms offer employees prestige, high salaries and opportunities to work on cutting-edge projects. In addition, there are thousands of startups in Silicon Valley to attract those who want to build something from the ground up.

However, recent analysis of Indeed job search data reveals a striking trend: Growing numbers of Silicon Valley tech workers between the ages of 31 and 40 are searching for work elsewhere.
