The growth of residential communities in the suburbs of Dallas/ Fort Worth has been on the rise, coinciding with the migration of young IT and engineering professionals. Thanks to a migration of tech companies in Dallas, the area has seen an 8.6% increase in migration of software and IT workers within the past year, earning the ranking of third Top Engineer Hub nationally. Just 20 minutes from Dallas, the new master planned community of Wildcat Ranch has emerged as a community of choice for many young professionals who are joining the area’s tech revolution.
Dallas/Fort Worth is home to several established tech giants. As a matter of fact, the region is home to 23 Fortune 500 companies, the most of any Texas metro. From American and Southwest Airlines to telecommunications giant AT&T, there are many national and international-based companies that call this region their home. Other notable companies in the area include Texas Instruments, Celanese, Energy Transfer and Jacobs Engineering.
When more tech companies choose to move their headquarters, it also moves a wealth of industry specific and supporting jobs with it. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, Dallas/Fort Worth outpaced the national average of 4.4% with a 5.4% increase rate of job growth last year. This year alone, six tech-focused companies announced their plans to relocate their headquarters within the region.

Three other out-of-state companies reliant on engineering talent have relocated to Dallas/Fort Worth as well, including California-based MD7 and North Carolina-based EXOS Aerospace. AECOM has also moved HQ from Los Angeles to Dallas, making it the sixth Fortune 500 company to relocate to the area in the past six years.
