      Due to the presence of Carnegie Mellon by any chance? Which part of the city are they located ?

      Yes, in large part due to CMU. Google is located in Bakery Square, about 2 miles from CMU, and there is a lot of synergy between the two.

    Shadyside, Regent Square, Swissvale, Bloomfield for young pros and especially if renting.

    It’s tech presence has grown. Like others have mentioned, it’s growing. Duolingo is another and some very unique startups. Respectable COL, lots to do, great for raising families. Having CMU here is a huge help and will probably bring more to the city.

    Pittsburgh is an acknowledged hub and leader for robotics. CMU’s Robotics Institute is world-renowned and deservedly so, and has spawned a robotics development industry in Pittsburgh. Outside of robotics, there are tech companies and tech jobs, but many of the big companies with a presence there, like Google and Amazon, are obviously headquartered elsewhere.

    Every it they say is next Bay area, but it is hard to get there. There will be more cities becoming hosts for tech companies but nothing can get big like Bay area

    Stay east for culture: getting to airport is the worst so if you decide to relo, plant your heels.

    Thanks for all the comments. Agree lot of companies have facilities there, but the tech scene still looks barebones for it to be considered the next Austin (forget Bay area).. Raleigh for example seems to have more meat to it's tech scene, so I'm not sure if I am completely buying the Pittsburgh is the next best thing narrative

    Are they concentrated in one part of the city like in the CMU/UPitt area?

      Not really. But everything is probably within half an drive radius of cmu.

    Another CMU related startup is Expii which is located in Oakland close to Pitt.
