Florida ranks third nationally in information technology companies and jobs behind only California and Texas, according to a report Monday by InfoWorld, an industry magazine.
“Though best-known for a certain mouse and associated tourist attractions, Florida’s also becoming a technology hot spot,” the magazine recently reported.
The median income is $70,930 based on data listed by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for computer and mathematical occupations, the magazine says.
Deborah Vazquez, president of ProTech Staffing in Boca Raton, said Florida’s — and South Florida’s tech companies and talent — are not always recognized nationally.
“South Florida is not just a beach town. There’s a lot going on down here,” she said.
