In The Past 10 Days Alone, Nearly 1,500 High-Paying Tech & Finance Jobs Announced For Miami

Miami continues to see a deluge of companies announcing they will add high paying jobs here, in a trend accelerated by the pandemic.

Almost 1,500 tech and finance jobs have been announced for Miami in the past ten days alone.

New job announcements for Miami in recent days include:

Millennium Management – a $50b hedge fund, will open its second office in Miami in the third quarter of 2022 with space for 350 employees.

The new office is being driven by its portfolio managers who prefer to live here rather than New York, Bloomberg reported.

In addition to finance jobs, there will also be tech employees. A total of 100 developers and engineers from hedge fund WorldQuant will be making the move.

Millenium will also open a West Palm Beach in Q2 2022 with 150 employees, bringing the company’s total new employees in Florida next year to 500.

North Equity, which owns a portfolio of media companies, has announced plans to create as as many as 380 jobs in Miami over the next three years.

The jobs would have an average salary of $80,000, according to the Herald. The company is currently based in New York and has offices at 701 Brickell.

Kaseya, a tech company which has its 20,000 square foot headquarters at 701 Brickell, has announced plans to hire up to 500 new employees by 2022.

The company is in the process of finalizing an additional 50,000 square feet of office space in Miami.

General Catalyst – a venture capital firm based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, announced plans this week to open a headquarters for its civic tech fund in Miami with an unknown number of employees.

Y’all sound dumb when you try to challenge another city in the state. We all win if the state wins, should aim for all cities being great in their own way and we’ll all benefit.

I’ll believe it when I see it.
We need 10.8 Million new jobs and a Metromover extension to my bedside that takes me to my office and to the FroYo place before we can call Miami a true World Class City.

STOP these silly comparisons…it only makes Miami look sadder and feel better than it is. Great that Kaseya is bringing jobs here…but in the tech industry they are literally at the bottom because they don’t pay well…so hence why they will come to Miami…look it up on Glassdoor. The instant that an article makes a comparison to NYC or Silicon Valley and says that people prefer Miami, is the instant you lose credibility. People ENJOY living here, nobody so much prefers it, especially if you are making money elsewhere. Get over the idea that everyone up north or out west is struggling and lives in subhuman conditions and start making improvements to this city that have nothing to do with how others view it.

Should have read finance (in which Miami has an established base) and some tech….let’s not start jumping up and down with dogs on their hind legs as if this is the equivalent of Oracle or Charles Schwab relocating and moving their corporate HQ to Texas.

There’s no office space for all these companies. Most will probably end up in Doral or Miramar with views of the Palmetto or I75

There is new office space coming on line. 830 Brickell; several Wynwood hybrids; some space at new train center. We can do it.

Seems Doral is the new darling.

Nope, not new. Doral has been chipping away at downtown office demand since the 1980s. It’s cheaper.

Earlier than that. The 80s at least gave us some sort of resurgence with Brickell, and that’s been about it, with most office space stock being from that era.

You are right. There are no any offices in center. The contractors building apartments for hookers and drug dealers in brickell and Downtown.
