South Carolina Needs More Software Developers

Employment as a software engineer in South Carolina expanded by more than 3,600 jobs in 2020 and the technology industry as a whole contributed $12.7 billion to the state’s economy.
According to Cyberstates™ 2021, the definitive annual analysis of the nation’s tech industry.

Our state’s economy depends on technology.

decorative

Our tech sector is responsible for an estimated 6 percent ($12.7 billion) of the overall state economy.

As our tech sector grows, our ability to compete will depend on the availability of an educated tech workforce. However, the pipeline of tech talent in our state – particularly in software development – is not large enough or diverse enough to meet the current demand, much less enough to support future growth in the sector.

Providing free access to technology education has the potential to expose residents to the vast amount of opportunity available – right here in South Carolina.
