Metro DC Emerges as Second-Biggest Hub for AI Jobs 

Metro DC has ascended to become the second-largest hub for job postings related to artificial intelligence, outpacing the New York metro area, according to a report from JLL.

Top-tier corporations like Leidos, Boeing, and AstraZeneca are actively seeking AI talent, reinforcing the region’s prominence in this field. 

Data scientist roles constitute a substantial 17% of AI-related job postings in the area. Additionally, roles like solutions architects, system engineers, full stack engineers, and scrum masters are gaining increasing traction, further diversifying the AI job landscape.
