WHY Code Oregon Matters

  • There’s a demand for tech talent. Currently, there are over 2,400+ technology job openings in the Portland Metro area alone.
  • Employer demand for tech talent will only grow. By 2020, there will be one million more computer programming jobs in the U.S. then there are people to fill them. Of those software jobs, 10,000 will be right here in Oregon.
  • It pays (well!) to code. Computing jobs are growing at twice the national average and pay 75% more than the national median annual salary. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported the median annual wage for computer programming was $72,428 in 2012. The best-paid 10% in the field made approximately $117,890 while the bottom 10% made approximately $42,850.
  • Accelerated training for high-demand jobs. Code Oregon 2.0 can help some motivated students get ready for in-demand jobs in a matter of months, offering a fast track to high-paying jobs.
