Raleigh voted most preferred place for young tech workers in new HQ2 poll

Even if Amazon’s second headquarters (known as HQ2) ends up somewhere else, Raleigh has a lot of good news coming out of the deep dive comparison to other potential sites.

A recent poll by Geekwire asked over 2,000 tech workers which city among the 20 finalists they would prefer to live in, and to quote them, “the answer was a surprise.” Raleigh came out on top, getting 11 percent of the vote, with Atlanta, Austin and Denver in the next three spots.

This spotlight on Raleigh and positive reviews of our town are coming not just from Amazon but from Apple and other major companies considering moves to the area. We must be really great, huh?

What are some of your favorite things about living in Raleigh?

  • The nightlife?
  • The location?
  • The weather?
  • The people and culture?
