Austin’s pool of qualified job candidates is a top draw for the tech industry, according to a new survey conducted by projekt202.
"I knew that moving to projekt202 was the right move for my career. What I didn't know at the time, though, was how impactful the job was going to be for me."
projekt202 has been a moving experience for Senior UX Designer Jerehmie Cannon.
Jerehmie headed in a new direction -- northwest, to be exact -- with the opening of projekt202's Seattle office in 2013.
"The relocation was great and everyone in the Seattle office -- four people at the time -- really went out of their way to make sure I was set up with everything I needed on a personal level," he said. "The move to Seattle was seamless and now I'm fortunate enough to learn how to grow a fledgling office."
On the professional level, too, Jerehmie said projekt202 has provided him with exciting new challenges and opportunities:
I've gone from being a Senior Designer with basic delivery responsibilities to completely owning projects from start to finish.
projekt202 is great about figuring out where people fit best. Our leadership has a knack for asking and inferring what each of us really want out of our careers. They foster an environment that is flexible enough to let us figure our own way.
I have been fortunate enough to work with huge clients, but the level of talent at projekt202 is so high that I'm constantly challenged to be a better designer, consultant and professional.

International Women's Day (IWD) on March 8 is a global observance celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. We've made great strides since the first IWD, but we also recognize there is still much progress to be made. That demonstrates another area in which projekt202 is leading by example within the tech industry.
According to a CNET article, the percentage of women working in technical roles at major tech companies was around 15 percent in 2015. At projekt202, however, we more than double that number, with women currently constituting 38 percent of our total workforce.
When it comes to leadership roles, the industry average for women is 22.5 percent; at projekt202, women fill more than a third of our managerial and leadership positions.
