Round Rock has been home to Dell Technologies for nearly three decades and is within 30 minutes of several major global tech giants including Samsung, Google, Apple, Tesla, Facebook, Oracle, IBM, HP, Expedia, Amazon and more.
Round Rock science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) occupations comprise 11% of the overall labor force, almost double the national average. As one of the fastest growing metros in the country with a median age of 33, the Round Rock region supplies a young and educated pipeline of tech talent.
“ What Our Companies Are Saying
The City of Round Rock was outstanding to work with. Their attitude of collaboration between business and the city helped us meet all of our construction deadlines. They are ready to serve business and put every other city I’ve ever worked with to shame.
