Tech jobs are available all over the world, and according to Indeed.com, there is a shortage of talent available to take them.

The company analyzed data from its online job search listings and released its findings in a new white paper, titled Beyond the Talent Shortage.

The company ranked 25 cities by the number of searches for 18 software-related jobs on their website during the first quarter of 2015. San Jose, San Francisco and Seattle make up the top three biggest tech hubs for job seekers. Austin, TX is the fourth most popular city for tech job seekers rounding out the company’s list of U.S. tech hubs.

There was a steep drop off in searches for the rest of the list, which continues below:

For these popular cities, it turns out there are way more tech jobs listed on Indeed than searchers looking for tech jobs in those cities.

In 2013, job seekers searched for software jobs in Austin 8,202 times per million job searches. That same year Austin companies had 98,512 software jobs posted on the site per million postings. That is a gap of more than 90,000 jobs.

But Austin has started to close the talent shortage gap, decreasing the talent shortage by 45 percent since then, as the chart below explains.
