Sydney, Australia. The capital city of New South Wales and the most populous city in Australia and Oceania. Sydney is an ever-sunny, vibrant city known for its iconic Opera House, harbour, beaches and exciting food, entertainment and arts scene.
If the weather wasn’t enough of a pull factor, Sydney has so much to offer. Whether you’re an avid foodie, a nature lover or enjoy culture and nightlife, Sydney is an incredibly versatile city with something for all.
As of 2020, the most 'in-demand’ job in Australia was Software Developer, followed by an IT business and systems analyst. Information, technology and science technology jobs are in a surplus across Sydney and New South Wales, and salaries for tech jobs in Sydney are high.
Australia’s largest capital city is also home to the biggest technology hub in the country. Coined ‘Australia Tech Central’, the tech hub has received a $48.2 million investment from the New South Wales government, with hopes to attract industry-leading tech innovators and entrepreneurs to set up shop at the tech hub.
As Australia continues to recover from the pandemic, Australia Tech Central will be more important than ever in leveraging Sydney to becoming one of the world’s leading technology cities. Co-CEO Scott Farquhar explained the motivation behind creating the hub was attracting talent, creating jobs, ideas and innovation, wanting to create a technology precinct that was home to thousands of workers with the best new ideas. The hub will hope to support niche tech markets and wants to aim for 14% more than that of Silicon Valley.
