The Future of Tech Talent In Nashville

It’s no secret that Nashville’s Tech Community has seen rapid growth for the last five years. The recent announcement of Oracle bringing in 8,500 jobs got everyone’s attention. To meet the unprecedented demand for tech talent in Middle Tennessee, NSS Founder and CEO John Wark believes that how we’ve sourced talent in the past won’t be enough to fill the bounty of employment opportunities in Nashville’s future. 

Join us on May 5th at 6pm as John Wark leads a panel discussion on where tech in Nashville is heading, how the local community is preparing, and how you can help NSS provide more opportunities to adults looking to make the leap into a tech career. Register for your free ticket and let us know you're coming! 

Panelists include Brian Moyer, President & CEO, Greater Nashville Technology Council, Matt Marshall, VP of Client Services and Esther Sanders, NSS Alumna and Developer at Built Technologies, Jessica Morrison, NSS Alumna and Middle Office Analyst at UBS, and Jason Turan, VP Data Science and Engineering at Healthcare Bluebook. 

“COVID-19 has created an unnatural pause in the growth of Nashville’s Tech Community - but the last four months we’ve seen the rapid growth in demand return as hiring has clearly resumed for tech talent,” he states. “That's without considering further acceleration of growth driven by announcements like the NTT Data announcement and even more so the Oracle announcement, and the fact that Amazon still has roughly 75% to 80% of their announced hiring to do.” 

Why This Conversation Matters

The accelerated tech growth in Middle Tennessee creates greater competition for existing talent, and the need to attract talent with the right skills to Nashville. There’s even more opportunity for those in the region to change careers and upskill into tech or reskill into more in-demand areas of tech.

So, join us for this important conversation. Then, support NSS during The Big Payback on May 5th - 6th as we raise $25,000 to create 10 scholarships for deserving adult career changers in Middle Tennessee!
