Las Vegas Sun, January 9, 2020
By Senator Jacky Rosen and Victoria Espinel
In a joint op-ed, Senator Jacky Rosen and BSA President and CEO Victoria Espinel write about Nevada's software jobs growth. Software is changing the way companies invest and do business - and this growth is benefiting the entire state.
The number of software jobs nationwide is up 14.6% since 2014, and across Nevada, jobs in this sector are booming. According to recent research from the nonpartisan organization Software.org, growth in the Nevada tech sector has created over 12,000 direct jobs — more than 45,000 jobs when you include the jobs and industries that software indirectly affects.
