Employment Prospects


Around 1.1 million software developers and programmers are employed in the United States. Software designers are employed throughout the United States. Opportunities are best in large cities and suburbs where business and industry are active. Many software manufacturers are headquartered in Silicon Valley and San Francisco in northern California. There are also concentrations of software manufacturers in Texas, Virginia, Massachusetts, Washington, and New York, among other places. Designers who adapt and tailor the software to meet specific needs of end-users work for those end-user companies, many of which are scattered across the country.
